United States Patents Quarterly
- United States Patents Quarterly
The United States Patents Quarterly (USPQ) is a United States legal reporter published by the Bureau of National Affairs in Washington, D.C. The USPQ covers intellectual property cases including patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets, from 1913 to the present.
The USPQ reports case law from the United States Supreme Court and most federal appeals courts, including the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, United States Court of Federal Claims, and United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals.
The United States Patent and Trademark Office regulations require that any case (other than a case from the United States Supreme Court) cited in any proceeding before the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences include a parallel citation to the USPQ. ["Citation of authority", [http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/pac/mpep/documents/appxr_41_12.htm 37 C.F.R. § 42.12(a)(2)] ] In trademark cases, USPQ citations are also suggested. ["Citation of Decisions and Office Publications", [http://tess2.uspto.gov/tmdb/tmep/0700.htm#_T70505 Trademark Manual of Examination Procedures § 705.05] ]
The cases reported in the USPQ are available through many commercial services, including LexisNexis, First American, and Westlaw.
