Trademark Watch Service

Protect your trademark from infringement.

After you have invested the time and money to register a trademark, our trademark watch service helps you protect that investment. By monitoring your trademark for potential infringement, you can quickly and accurately respond to any possible conflicting marks or new registrations. We monitor your trademark and provide you regular and detailed reports of any findings.

Why should I monitor my trademark?

Protection

Monitor all new USPTO trademark applications for others who could be attempting to use your unique name, slogan or logo.

Stay informed

Recognizing potentially conflicting marks going through the registration process could allow you to enforce your trademark rights and force the denial of an application.

Save time and money

By quickly detecting any potential conflicting marks, you can respond during the application process, preventing you from spending additional time and money on legal actions and lawyer fees.

Fast and simple

We monitor and protect your trademark for you, you won't have to lift a finger. Our experts notify you immediately when a potentially conflicting mark is registered.

What is a trademark watch service?

A trademark watch service is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to protect your intellectual property. Our trademark watch helps you 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 ). Staying informed about these registrations allows you to quickly react and respond to any new registrations that conflict with your protected mark. This can potentially save you thousands in legal fees down the road, and help you save time while protecting your valuable intellectual property.

What should I do if someone is using my trademark?

There are a few options you have once you have found that another company is attempting to register or use your existing mark that are only possible with a trademark watch service. With these options, you can potentially save money by preventing an application from progressing.

  1. Contact the individual or company attempting to use the mark. It may be that the owner is unaware of the infringement. Simply by contacting them and making them aware of the conflict, they may withdraw their application.
  2. You can send a Letter of Protest to the USPTO. This will notify the examiner of the potential infringement and ask them to reject the application in question.
  3. File a formal Notice of Opposition. This is like a lawsuit, and prevents the impending registration from proceeding

You may also want to consult an attorney who will be able to advise you about the steps necessary to protect your mark.

Frequently asked questions

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.
