So TESS is not so historic IP friendly while the internet archive surely is!
The TESS database contains:
- only those trademarks that are Federally registered or that are pending (applications undergoing examination at the USPTO).
- the available information on inactive applications and registrations (i.e., abandoned applications or canceled or expired registrations).
The TESS database does not contain:
- any information on state, foreign, or common law trademarks.
- Information on applications and registrations that were inactive prior to 1984 are generally not available on TESS.
