Over the past few weeks, TM TKO has rolled out a number of improvements, but we haven’t done a formal blog post about them yet!
Search, Watch, and ThorCheck
You can now interact with the mark result tables in search, watch, and ThorCheck report results with a full range of interactive tools:
- tag key results;
- filter by tagging status or live/dead status;
- sort results by overall relevance (mark similarity + goods/services similarity) or just mark similarity (i.e. sort by the y-axis on the scatterplot);
- filter using free-text search (to filter by class, goods, owner, etc.);
- export to Word.
These features live in a toolbar at the top of your federal search results (in search and watch) or at the top of your ThorCheck report.
The image below shows the “Mark” similarity sort applied, bringing more-similar marks (albeit for much less related goods) to the forefront. Applying this sort is a quickest way to review searches where your look at the scatterplot suggests that the most concerning marks are out-of-class.
Free-text filtering opens up lots of possibilities, including filtering by goods:
Filtering by class:
And filtering by owner:
Export to Word lets you export your table of results (either the whole table or just tagged items) for further word processing, making it easy to incorporate results into an Office Action Response or just to match your preferred firm or practice group formatting.
Search – Double-click to jump
Double-click on any point in the scatterplot to jump immediately to the full record in the table. Interacting with TM TKO’s unique graphical search analysis is now easier than ever.
Search and Watch – Setup
We’ve added a checkbox to let you limit results to just the class(es) of the goods or services you entered. This helps where you are searching a very diluted term, or if the client only is willing to enforce in the class(es) where they own a registration.
We hope you love all the new interactive features!
We are working on a solution that will generate TSDR status and title copies for you. It should be available both as a standalone tool and as an export option from search, watch, ThorCheck reports. It will be a great convenience when generating large amounts of evidence for an Office Action Response, Letter of Protest, or an adversarial proceeding at the TTAB or in federal court.
