What is a title and how is it sent?

Once the SPTO decides to grant any type of Industrial property rights, it issues a certificate stating that the holder is the owner of said right.

In the case of Designs and Distinctive Signs (Trademarks and Trade names) the applicant is sent a URL in their award letter from where they can download their certificate.

In the case of Patents and Utility Models, depending on the method of notification chosen by the applicant, they will be sent a PDF of the certificate either by email or to their physical address.

If the application has been processed through an agent, no documents are sent. The agent is given the URL from where the certificate can be downloaded or, in the case of Patents and Utility Models, the PDF of the certificate stays with the SPTO until it is picked up, or it is sent to their email if requested so by them.
