Director Monica Riva Talley was quoted in the article "USPTO Sanctions Spark Demand for Tough Line on Filing Farms," published by Managing IP.

She comments on the potential effectiveness of the USPTO's sanctions against two U.S. attorneys who collaborated with Chinese and Indian companies on large-scale trademark application filings. She also suggests that the USPTO establish a trademark bar, which would institute standards and rules for trademark practitioners.
