Counsel Lauriel F. Dalier will moderate the “Using the USPTO’s Federal Trademark Search System” session at the 2024 INTA Annual Meeting on May 19, 2024, in Atlanta, Georgia.

Session Overview

Searching the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO) trademark database is a key component of a comprehensive clearance search. Are you still learning the new search system? Or are you interested in tips and tricks for upper-level searching? Or are you simply curious how to translate your Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS) searching knowledge to the new syntax? Join an expert from the USPTO for a live demonstration and an exploration of basic and advanced search techniques. This training will cover:

  • Navigating the search interface
  • Simple searching using drop-down menus
  • Advanced searching using field tags

The session will close out with a question-and-answer session and direct you to free resources from the USPTO.
