Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

RSS feeds for USPTO

The fine folks at Rethink(IP) have created RSS feeds for all news items and notices released by the United States Patent and Trademark OfficeOfficial Gazette and Federal Register Announcements, General news items, Patent news items, Trademark news items, and a catchall feed including ALL items from the other 4 feeds.

Many of our readers will no doubt agree that the Office’s News and Notices site is a woefully antiquated and inadequate means for distributing important information to the intellectual property community. We believe this site stands as a stark reminder of the Office’s failure to implement RSS technology. We’ve ranted on this in the past, but have seen no action or commentary by the Office.

So we decided to take matters into our own hands.

Today we launch the following four RSS feeds that mimic the categories used by the Office.
