TradeMark Express conducts expert Federal Trademark, State Trademark, and Common Law Research (first use) on the leading online sources of Thomson Reuters Westlaw & CompuMark SAEGIS network of 6500 databases.
Each area of potential similarity is thoroughly searched for trade name conflict and similarities — based on name similarity of sound, appearance, and meaning. These online databases, with billions of references to search through, are updated daily.
A typical trade name search may involve researching thousands of different compiled informational databases to find a potential problem.
We know from the experience of conducting over 500,000 trade name research strategies that similarities are much more likely to affect a clients’ legal use, than conflicts which a preliminary search will uncover. Most strong similarities in sound, appearance, and meaning are found only when conducting a comprehensive IP search.
Thus, TradeMark Express only conducts comprehensive IP searches for its clients because of its expertise.
Unique Step-By-Step Money Saving Approach. IF legally blocked, then salvage & rollover unused funds to new trademark.
