Please join us July 17, 2013 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. for a technical briefing on the inner workings of Trademark Status and Document Retrieval (TSDR). Learn: (1) the history of Trademark Application and Registration Retrieval (TARR), Trademark Document Retrieval (TDR), and TSDR, (2) why we moved to TSDR, (3) how TSDR differs from its predecessors, TARR and TDR, and (4) the basics of the technology behind TSDR. The discussion will also describe some of the systems that are not normally visible to the public and how they differ from those the public views.
The event will be held in the Paris Room of the Global Intellectual Property Academy (GIPA), second floor of the Madison East Building, Alexandria, Virginia.

Look for appropriate directional signage once within GIPA on the second floor.
