The Trademark Official Gazette (TMOG) is published each Tuesday and contains bibliographic information and a representative drawing for each mark published, along with a list of cancelled and renewed registrations. The TMOG does not contain USPTO Notices. Information about each mark may also be found in the searchable trademark database, Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS). On the publication date or shortly thereafter, the applicant should carefully review the information that appears in the TMOG for accuracy. For applicant corrections or amendments after publication, please file a post-publication amendment using the form. For general information, contact the Trademark Assistance Center at 1-800-786-9199.

Electronic Version of the TMOG
ADVISORY: If you experience any trouble when clicking on the direct links to published records in Notices of Publication received via email and/or that appear in TSDR (Trademark Status and Document Retrieval), you can access the individual record by either 1) copying the link from the email or Notice of Publication in TSDR and pasting it into the url address of a supported browser (IE 10.0 or later and the latest versions of FireFox, Chrome or Safari); or 2) visiting the TMOG main page at https://tmog.uspto.gov/, selecting the Official Gazette issue date from the list of Issues in the upper left corner and then entering the 8 digit serial number in the box labeled "Search By" and clicking on the magnifying glass icon to execute the search.
PDF Version of the TMOG
In addition to the electronic version of the TMOG, the USPTO will continue for a certain period to offer a PDF version, accessed below. To search the PDF version, follow these steps. NOTE: Viewing the PDF files will require Adobe's free Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. To download a file, right-click on the link, select "Save Link As..." or "Save Target As...," select the directory, then Save.
ADVISORY - PDF format change
As part of the ongoing effort to improve and modernize our legacy computer systems, effective the November 4, 2014 Official Gazette, the Office must retire the system that produces the "legacy" pdf files for the Official Gazette each week. The October 28, 2014 Official Gazette will thus be the last one available in the current pdf format.
We will still offer a pdf file for each issue for those who choose not to use the easily searchable format of the Trademark Official Gazette (TMOG); however, the format of the pdf version will differ. Based on user feedback received, the newer version features more complete information for each record, though this results in it having more pages. The newer version also lists the applications in a different order, eliminating the separation between multiple class and single class applications and instead just listing all of the records in ascending order by serial number.
To compare and contrast the new and old pdf versions, you can click the link to the August 5, 2014 legacy pdf and then click the link to the August 5, 2014 TMOG version. While the format for the newer pdf version cannot be changed in the short term, we greatly appreciate your feedback and suggestions about improving it for future releases. Please send commentary via firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can continue to improve the TMOG.
As part of the pilot program to allow amendments to identifications of goods and services in trademark registrations due to technology evolution, the USPTO will publish all proposed amendments that appear likely to be acceptable under the pilot prior to amending the registration so that interested parties may comment about proposed amendments prior to acceptance.
