Post-Dated Items in U.S. Trademark Document Retrieval System

Anne Downey, of Downey & Downey, reports on the INTA Listserv that "Regarding post-dated Notices of Allowance, I was told by a PTO representative that the PTO is aware of the issue. The NOAs get printed in advance andsometimes are mailed out prior to the NOA date. They are not uploaded into the Trademark Document Retrieval ("TDR") database until the NOA date occurs."

The TDR system displays the electronic file wrapper of U.S. Trademark applications and applications for Extensions of Protection, as well as U.S. Trademark Registrations. It also displays information contained in the USPTO records regarding International Registrations and applications for International Registration filed under the Madrid system through the U.S. Currently, you can access almost all pending applications and all Madrid Protocol filings, and many registrations, via TDR.

The USPTO is in the process of converting all remaining registrations into a digital format, so as to permit future TDR access. This conversion process is expected to take several years. Please consult the frequently asked questions for more information regarding what is available in TDR.
