Trademark Search Services
Trademark Search in India & International
Before applying for registration of your brand name or logo, it is essential to perform a trademark search. Most importantly, it helps to identify the registrability of your mark. In case similar names exist during the search, the possibility of getting your mark registered is remote. For this reason, a trademark search is important before applying/filing a trademark application.
Firstly, a trademark search will demonstrate whether someone else has already adopted your proposed trademark or similar marks. If you adopt an existing trademark, then you may be inviting a trademark infringement lawsuit. Finally, infringement suits may result in paying monetary damages or discontinuing the use of your trademark or both.
Secondly, it would clearly list any prior trademark registrations or pending applications. Therefore, the existing similar marks may likely to prevent you from registering your brand name with the Trademark Registry. This would, in turn, save time and money of filing a trademark application that has little chance of getting registered.
Thirdly, it would help you assess the relative strength of your mark by showing you how many other similar trademarks are already there in the marketplace, apart from the trademark registered in Trademark Registry. Further, we suggest you read on why conduct a trade mark search? to understand the purposes.
