HOW TO RESEARCH TRADEMARKS
The PTO also maintains a free searchable database of U.S. patents. The database allows you to view front page information on U.S. patents issued since 1976, browse U.S. patent classes and search the U.S. Manual of Classification.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce.
CAFC decisions are also available from the Emory University School of Law Library's Court Publishing Project, in cooperation with the Court. Opinions on the Emory site are posted in both HTML and RTF formats and are searchable by party name and decision date, and by keywords using WAIS. The Edward Bennett Williams Library of the Georgetown University Law Center too provides access to recent decisions of the Federal Circuit. The opinions are available for downloading in WordPerfect®, Microsoft Word®, and ASCII formats.
