106    The Official Gazette

The Official Gazette (“OG”), issued every Tuesday, is a publication of the USPTO, which is available free of charge on the USPTO website.

Trademark Official Gazette (“TMOG”). The TMOG, posted at http://www.uspto.gov/news/og/tindex.jsp, contains an illustration of each mark published for opposition on the Principal Register, marks registered on the Principal Register under 15 U.S.C. §1051(d), and marks registered on the Supplemental Register on the date of the particular issue in which the marks appear. Effective July 15, 2003, the USPTO publishes the TMOG only in electronic form. See notice at 68 Fed. Reg. 37803 (June 25, 2003).

USPTO Notices. The TMOG does not contain USPTO Notices. Such notices are posted separately in the general information section of the Official Gazette, at http://www.uspto.gov/news/og/index.jsp. This section includes such general information as notices of changes in rules or Office procedures for both patents and trademarks; notices to parties who cannot be reached by mail; and indices of trademark registrations issued, renewed, cancelled, amended, or corrected on the date of the particular issue in which the marks appear.

Effective January 1, 2008, the USPTO discontinued the separate weekly publication of USPTO notices in paper form. See notice at 72 Fed. Reg. 72999 (Dec. 26, 2007).
