USA: US FTC updates textile rules to drop obsolete requirement

The US Federal Trade Commission has eliminated an obsolete provision under the Textile Fibre Products Identification Act (Textile Rules) that requires house word trademark owners to furnish the agency with a copy of the mark’s US Patent and Trademark Office registration before using it on labels. In June 2017, it had sought comments on proposed amendments. 

The Textile Rules require marketers to place a label on certain textile products to disclose some information, such as the name under which the manufacturer or other responsible company does business, according to an FTC press release. The commission works to promote competition, and protect and educate consumers.
