110    Decisions Available to the Public

37 C.F.R. §2.27(c)

Decisions of the Director and the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board in applications and proceedings relating thereto are published or available for inspection or publication.

Precedential decisions of the Director and the Board are noted as such and published in the United States Patents Quarterly (cited as USPQ or USPQ2d), which is a periodical reporting service of a non-governmental publishing company. The USPTO does not print these decisions in its own publications. Non-precedential decisions of the Director and the Board are not published.

Both precedential and non-precedential decisions are available for viewing, downloading, and printing via TTABVUE.

A weekly summary of final decisions issued by the Board appears on the USPTO website at http://www.uspto.gov and in each issue of the Official Gazette.
