Here's What You Need to Know About the USPTO Deadline Extension
The USPTO is now extending the following select deadlines to June 1, 2020 if the original due date fell between March 27 and May 31, 2020, if the reason for the delay is due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

· Response to Office Action, including Notice of Appeal;
· Statement of Use or Request for Extension of Time to File Statement of Use;
· Section 8 Declaration of Continued Use;
· Section 9 Renewal Application;
· Notice of Opposition or Request for Extension of Time to File Notice of Opposition; and
· Foreign priority filings to file U.S. application based on home country registration.
