USPTO Trademark Filings Now Available Via Web Portal

From the BeSpacific (Law & Technology News) blog
bySabrina I. Pacifica, February 1, 2005:

"The Trademark Document Retrieval (TDR), offers
the public an advanced electronic portal to PDF viewing,
downloading and printing of an array of information and
documents for more than 460,000 trademark applications
totaling more than eight million document pages. As new
applications are filed, they will be added to the database.
It is expected that more than 300,000 application files
will be added annually. Over the next five years, the
remaining paper files of approximately 1.2 million active
trademark registrations will be converted into digital
format for TDR access."
