Follow Your TTAB Cases on TTAB Across The Board
Trademark attorney Chris Shiplett has launched a useful new website called TTAB Across The Board, which provides a searchable database of TTAB case status information and TTAB filings.
At TTAB Across The Board, one may search for case information on TTAB proceedings and appeals, and may also search the full text of TTAB filings. Chris has thus far indexed most TTAB documents issued since March 2009, including board orders, motions, pleadings, and evidentiary submissions.
After a simple registration process, the user may create a "watch list" of TTAB cases and then get daily updates for the listed cases, either by e-mail or RSS feed, or both.
I registered at the website about two weeks ago, and every morning I check my watch list for new developments. I also check each day's "orders" to keep on top of new TTAB decisions worthy of posting on the TTABlog.
This is an excellent companion to the Feathers software program (which I have been using for more than 10 years), whereby one may monitor trademark filings at the USPTO.
