Determine if anyone else is registering a similar name, logo, or design by 'watching' new applications filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office ( USPTO ).
A trademark watch looks for marks similar to those owned by your business that are either filed with or published by the USPTO. Receive news of newly filed or published marks that are similar to your trademark or logo.
Conducting a trademark watch keeps you informed about potentially conflicting marks that are registered with the USPTO. Recognizing potentially conflicting marks going through the registration process could allow you to enforce your trademark rights and force the denial of an application.
Don't let someone else register a mark that is similar to a name or logo that you have already trademarked. Order a trademark watch today.
File a trademark watch and protect your brand for only $175Get Started
The business filing experts at MyCorporation can help save you time and hassle in placing your trademark application order. We are here to support you during the filing process:
Once you complete the Trademark Watch order form, MyCorporation will begin your trademark watch. Based on your preference, we will notify you via email or hard copy. The notifications will arrive shortly after each new potentially conflicting application is filed with the USPTO or when a similar mark is published in the Official Gazette for opposition. After receiving the notification, you can decide whether you want to oppose the potential illegal misuse of your trademark.
Whether your business needs a trademark or a copyright largely depends upon what you want to protect.
A trademark protects words, marks, or symbols that identify goods or services offered for sale. The primary business purpose of a trademark is to protect the identity and brand of a product. Some common examples of trademarks include a brand name or a design used on packaging.
A copyright protects an original work of authorship fixed in a tangible medium. Common examples of copyright-able works include songs, movies, books, and photos.
A trademark watch can be implemented to watch for third party uses of a trademark and helps a person to protect their mark once it is in use and/or registered. Trademarks can be watched in the form of a trademark application watch or a trademark publication watch.
You will receive updates from MyCorporation on a regular basis. The reports will provide you with information based upon the type of watch ordered—new trademark applications and/or new trademark publications.
Your watch reports can be forwarded to you electronically (via email), via U.S. mail, or via UPS (for a minimal surcharge).
If there is a conflict, you may want to consult an attorney who will be able to advise you about the steps necessary to protect your mark.
