(473) Notice of Inclusion of Trademark Registration Certificate Maintenance Requirements Page in Trademark Document Retrieval Database The practice of the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("Office") has been to provide notice of trademark maintenance requirements with trademark registration certificates sent to registrants, but not to upload this information as part of the record into the Trademark Document Retrieval ("TDR") database. As of July 5, 2011, the Office will upload the maintenance requirements page of new trademark registration certificates and updated registration certificates in the TDR database so that the database will reflect the maintenance requirement information provided to the registrant. Although, pursuant to 15 U.S.C. 1057(a), 37 CFR 2.151, 2.162, and 7.38, maintenance requirement information has previously accompanied trademark registration certificates, the information was not uploaded to the TDR database. To include in the record the trademark registration maintenance requirement information now provided as part of the trademark registration certificate and to ensure that registration maintenance information is readily available to trademark owners when viewing their registrations electronically, the Office will be including the maintenance requirements page of trademark registration certificates and updated registration certificates in the TDR database. The Office intends to include the maintenance requirement page in TDR for new and updated trademark registration certificates uploaded on or after July 5, 2011. The Office prefers that any inquiries on this notice be made via electronic mail message to TMFRNotices@uspto.gov, or to Cynthia C. Lynch, Office of the Deputy Commissioner for Trademark Examination Policy, by telephone at (571) 272-8742. June 30, 2011 DEBORAH S.
