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 publisher stopped the sequence of volume numbers and restarted with a second series, cited as USPQ2d, in 1987.

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. It also includes cases from United States District Courts, and certain decisions from administrative tribunals, such as the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences, the United States International Trade Commission and the Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks, and opinions from state courts.[1]

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.[3] In trademark cases, USPQ citations are also suggested.[4]

The cases reported in the USPQ are available through many commercial services, including Bloomberg Law, LexisNexis, First American, and Westlaw. As of December 2013, the USPQ is exclusively available only on Bloomberg Law and Bloomberg BNA (Bureau of National Affairs)
