Notice Regarding the Trademark Official Gazette (22Jun2007)

The Office expects the size of each of the July issues of the T rademark Official Gazette (OG) to be somewhat larger than usual.   During the last six months, issues of the OG have generally included between 4,000 and 5,000 marks published for opposition.  The Office expects that 6,000 - 7,000 marks may publish for opposition each week during July.  In addition, the number of registration certificates issued each week in July will be larger than normal.

The larger OGs arise out of the Office's elimination of an unnecessary review of OG data, a cost-cutting, efficiency measure in the production of the OG.  This measure decreases  the time between approval for publication by the Examining Attorney and publication in the OG by about one week.  The larger OGs in July result from a temporary overlap of work processed  under the old and new production systems.  After July, the size of the OG is expected to decrease, and will reflect work processed only under the new production system.
