Intellectual Property Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer
If you properly filed the amendment and received a response that the amendment was accepted, then your corrected mark should be valid. It may just be that it hasn't been corrected in the system. You best bet is to contact the examining attorney on your case directly. Do not just contact the USPTO generally. You can find the examining attorney's name and information in some of the documents issued.
Your examining attorney is Dawn Han. Her phone number is XXXXX on the document titled "Examiners Amendment" dated July 31, 2013.
Upon looking at the documents, it seems as though it was issued for publication before you sent in your amendment to the spelling. Therefore, you likely will have to have it published and examined again.
Your best bet is to call Dawn directly. Let me know if you have any further questions.
Thank you - I will give Dawn a call. Is it as simple as asking her to re-publish or is there additional forms to submit?
