Trademark Alert


TSDR API unavailable starting May 7

The Trademark Status and Document Retrieval (TSDR) Application Programming Interface (API) will be unavailable starting May 7 at midnight ET for at least two weeks to address the impact of significant usage spikes. Unprecedented levels of bulk data scraping has impeded the work of Trademark employees and caused other significant IT issues. We apologize for any inconvenience. 

If you rely on third-party organizations to receive trademark status and document retrieval, these services could be impacted if the third party uses our TSDR API. 

Customers can still check the status of a trademark application and retrieve documents directly from TSDR at http://tsdr.uspto.gov

Bulk data customers who rely on the TSDR API can use alternative methods to receive bulk data from TSDR. If you are a bulk data customer who has questions or needs additional information, please send an email to TSDR@USPTO.GOV and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

New TM Status App

On Wednesday, May 8, you will be able to download the new TM Status App from Google Play or the Apple Store. With this app you can easily access trademark status information and set up notifications from your mobile device.
