Feathers Trademark Monitoring Freeware

From Oppedahl & Larson LLP at

Have you ever gone to the US Patent & Trademark Office's "TARR" web page to check the status of a trademark application? Have you tired of typing in the same serial number day after day on that web page to obtain the current status of a trademark application?

Then you may wish to try our free Feathers® software. It is now in beta-test and we look forward to finding out what you think of it. The Feathers software lets you build up a list of the US trademark applications and registrations which you would like to monitor. You can run the software to obtain the status of each application and registration. Later, you can run the software again, and it will tell you what changes there have been to the status of the applications and registrations.

The software can automatically send an email notification to one or more email addresses whenever the status of an application or registration changes. The software will also create a web (HTML) page which you may choose to place on an intranet web site for easy viewing and searching by persons within your organization.

To obtain the software, you can simply download the file to your computer. (You may need to shift-click to download the file. The file is about 350K so it may take several minutes or more to download.) Make careful note of the directory in your computer to which you have downloaded the file. Then run the file "feathers.exe" which you have downloaded, which will install the software to your system. (The installation program asks you to choose where to store various things, and we suggest you use the default values provided by the installation program.) You will then be asked to restart your computer, after which the installation program finishes. . . .
