The Trademarkroom offers a trade mark watch service which will keep you informed of applicants attempting to register highly similar or identical trade marks to your watched marks.
It is a common misconception that you are fully covered once you have registered your trade mark however, another brand could still quite easily apply to register a mark that is highly similar or even identical to yours. A trade mark watch service could prevent this.
Trade mark watching is a procedure completed by either the individual owner of the trade mark, or someone on their behalf.
In some countries, the Intellectual Property Office will not refuse an application on the basis of an existing registration. It is the responsibility of the trade mark owner to ensure they are on top of the ongoing applications and challenge those which cause an issue for their protection. This could effectively mean another individual and/or business could register a highly similar or even identical mark to that of your own. It is arguably harder to cancel a trade mark that is already registered in comparison to opposing one during its registration process, therefore it is always better to catch any potential conflict sooner than later.
By taking advantage of The Trademarkroom Watch service, you will be able to monitor and analyse any marks of concern and will be notified of them in the form of a regular report.
The Trademarkroom offers a trade mark watch service which will keep you informed of applicants attempting to register highly similar or identical trade marks to your watched marks. With this information, it is then down to you to decide whether you feel they are similar enough to warrant any action. Doing so may not only save you time, but potential costs in the long run too.
