MyUSPTO - Using MyUSPTO - Widgets

MyUSPTO widgets are small applications that display snippets of important information on the MyUSPTO homepage. Our widgets are shortcuts to larger USPTO applications and affiliated sites. 

Please click here.

These notifications are sent only as a courtesy. Failure by the USPTO to send a notification or non-receipt of a notification does not excuse you from complying with or meeting any relevant legal obligations, requirements, or deadlines. Always check the Trademark Status and Document Retrieval (TSDR) database to review status information and documents. 

Go to the Actions area within the Full screenFull screen view iconview of your docket to set your personalized view.

A prosecution history update occurs when some action has been taken on an application or registration. We identified certain history entries that our customers may want to know about because those entries may identify unauthorized changes.

A notification bell icon will appear when certain prosecution history entries are updated in cases in your docket. This bell also appears when updates are made to the status of cases in your docket.

A small subset of prosecution history changes was chosen because they may indicate unauthorized changes to a trademark case. This subset does not reflect all possible changes that can be made to cases in your docket.  We may add more history changes in a future release.
