"Trademark Bullying" Comment Period Extended (Again)

It appears the USPTO, once again, has extended the period for submitting comments on what originally was termed a study regarding "trademark bullying," but was later characterized as a study on "aggressive trademark litigation tactics" — so, for those of you still interested in submitting comments, the new deadline is February 14, 2011. Apparently, the USPTO plans on delivering the results of its study to Congress on March 17, 2011. The current version of the survey omits (again) any reference to the politically-charged and pejorative term "trademark bully" — keeping the focus more broadly on "aggressive trademark litigation tactics." It is also my understanding that INTA did, in fact, submit timely comments to the USPTO survey, but I have not seen any reference yet on INTA's website or newsletters about its submission.
