I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States of America that all the foregoing statements are true and correct to the best of my knowledge and belief.  I understand that willful false statements and the like may jeopardize the validity of the application or document or any registration resulting therefrom, and are punishable by fine or imprisonment, or both (18 U.S.C. §1001).  35 U.S.C. §25(b).
