How Our Premium Package Works.
$200 USA Federal & State -or- Canada Trademark Research.

STEP 1 – FREE PRELIMINARY DIRECT HIT LEGAL RESEARCH.

Before TradeMark Express conducts a comprehensive trademark search, we will do a FREE direct hit check for the name at the USPTO or CIPO. If there is a conflict, we will inform you to verify and discuss with one of the trademark attorneys in our network.

STEP 2 – COMPREHENSIVE FEDERAL/STATE CLEARANCE LEGAL TRADEMARK SEARCH.

TradeMark Express will search the pending and registered Federal and State trademark files in accordance with the USPTO’s policy, namely looking for similarities in sound, appearance, or meaning. This involves searching for synonyms, spelling variations, word placement, etc.

Trademark Research Analysis Included

TradeMark Express will analyze the research results for FREE. If there are conflicts or strong similarities found, we put a hold on the rest of the research until you’ve had a chance to speak to the referred trademark attorney in our network.

More About the Research
  • Our combined Federal & State trademark search determines whether your proposed name is available for trademarking in the United States.
  • We research pending and registered federal marks and registered state marks through the online database provider LEXIS-NEXIS or Dialog.
  • Because we break your name into smaller segments (truncation) and search for combinations of these segments (rotated), we find conflicting marks as well as those strongly similar in sound, appearance, or meaning. This produces a comprehensive search, which is a crucial process in finding similar names.
  • Similar marks are important to find. Trademark law offers protection against any name that could be confused in commerce with an existing trademark.
More About the Research Analysis
  • After the Federal trademark search is complete, TradeMark Express analyzes the results before proceeding to the US National Common-Law Search.
  • If there are any conflicts or strong similarities with your name, we put a hold on the rest of the research until you’ve had a chance to discuss the report with the referred trademark attorney.
  • If your name is blocked by a Conflict or Strong Similarities, we will save you from unneeded additional US National Common-Law research. At that point, our Rollover Policy takes effect.
  • Other search companies and intellectual property attorneys do not offer the benefit of stopping midway to analyze the research.
  • If the search is clear of Conflicts or Strong Similarities, we will proceed with your US National Common-Law search.
  • Step-by-step research is one of our major benefits.
  • You will save trademark lawyer fees for their time to analyze each search.
  • Our trademark research analysis is included! This is a $400 savings from what trademark attorneys typically charge.

Not Using Name

If after speaking with the attorney, you decide not to pursue the name, a rollover of your remaining balance begins. Our comprehensive trademark search and application package is non-refundable. However, any remaining funds may be applied towards another name, which remains open for 2 years from the original purchase date and may not be extended.

Going Ahead with the Name

If there are no conflicts or strong similarities, or if after speaking with the attorney you decide to pursue the name, the next step is the US National Common-Law.

$200 USA -or- Canada National Common Law Research.

STEP 3 – COMPREHENSIVE NATIONAL COMMON LAW RESEARCH.

TradeMark Express will search for commercial availability of the mark in numerous files. Businesses have “first use” or Common-Law rights to their trade names in whatever geographic trade area they serve. The US National Common-Law research will help you to determine if you face any trade restrictions.

US National Common-Law Analysis

TradeMark Express will analyze the research results for free. If there are conflicts or similarities found, we put a hold on the rest of the research until you’ve had a chance to speak to the referred trademark attorney.

More About the Common-Law Research
  • Businesses have “first use” or common law rights to their trade names in whatever geographic area they serve. The US National Common-Law search tells you if and where the trade name is available for commercial use. The US National Common-Law research will help you to determine whether you face any trade restrictions.
  • Common law research is important to do before you use your trade name OR expand its geographic area. It must be completed before applying for a State or Federal trademark.
  • Because trademark law is based on the principle of first use, you may be infringing upon another business’s rights to the name, even if you own the trademark.
  • LEXIS-NEXIS and Dialog information services include the following sources, to name a few, to determine whether your name is currently in use anywhere in the United States:
    • Over 16 million trade names are searched — yellow pages, company directories, DBA fictitious name filings, company directories, newspapers, trade journals, court records, tax records, municipal records, credit records, product databases, industry sources, etc.
    • Dun & Bradstreet – Dun’s Market Indicators consist of over 11 million Dun & Bradstreet Enhanced DMI records, plus over 16 million US records from D&B’s vast data warehouse. With over 98% of the records being private companies, DMI is widely recognized as the premier source for hard to find, basic company information.
    • Company and product information databases – including American Business Information, US Business Directory Company Intelligence, Database America All Business File, and dozens of other company and product directories.
    • Prompt, MARS, and other full-text news sources – Hundreds of major newspapers, newsletters, business and industry-specific journals, periodicals, abstracts, and reviews.
    • Industry-specific sources – Specialized databases are researched for names in the following industries: entertainment, communications, computers, publishing, medicine, pharmaceuticals, electronics, technology, and sports.
More About the Common-Law Research Analysis
  • After your Common Law search is complete, TradeMark Express will analyze the results before proceeding to prepare and file your trademark application.
  • We will determine if your trade name is commercially available.
  • Any conflicting or strongly similar commercial use would enjoy first use rights under U.S. common law.
  • Step-by-step research is one of our major client benefits.
  • If the search is clear, we will prepare and file a USPTO Federal trademark application.
  • If your Common Law search is blocked, we will save you from spending your money and time applying for a trademark. At that point, our Rollover Policy takes effect.
  • You will save trademark lawyer fees for their time to analyze each search.
  • If the research is seemingly blocked, then we recommend:
    1. Doing a competitive check to verify if the other mark is still in business, then
    2. Before reviewing it with 1 of the 9 trademark attorneys in our independent network.
  • Our common law research analysis is included! This is a $400 savings from what trademark attorneys typically charge.

Not Using Name

If after speaking with the attorney, you decide not to pursue the name, a rollover of your remaining balance begins. Our comprehensive research and application package is non-refundable. However, any remaining funds may be applied towards another name, which remains open for 2 years from the original purchase date and may not be extended.

USPTO -or- Canada CIPO Trademark Application.

STEP 4 – TRADEMARK APPLICATION.

If there are no conflicts or strong similarities, or if after speaking with the attorney you decide to pursue the name, the next step is the US National Common-Law.

Other search companies combine the Trademark and Common Law searches together because they offer no analysis of the searches. So, even if your trade name is blocked early in the Trademark search, you will pay for the complete Common Law search.

Our approach requires more expertise and is more time consuming for us, but immensely better for our clients! The money our clients save can be better spent on finding a new legally clear trade name. We estimate we have saved our clients more than two million dollars in our fees by recommending against unneeded Common Law research.

The USPTO charges a fee of $350, (or $250 if a simple application, TBD), per class, which is separate from TradeMark Express’ fees and is paid directly to the USPTO or CIPO at the time of application.

stopwatch with deadlineYou don’t have to accept the expensive risk of losing a desired trade name when filing with the USPTO or CPO, simply because the research company made you wait a few days or a week for your results.

Urgent Trademark Package Details

We will research up to 3 names, slogans or logos to get 1 LEGALLY CLEAR trademark.

Since 2010, only about 5% of our Urgent Trademark clients exhaust 3 trademark choices. There is no refund if all 3 of your choices prove to be legally blocked because we may have spent over 30 hours of staff and trademark attorney time and incurred database costs for 3 blocked trademarks. We hope your chosen mark is legally clear, but ultimately, our job is to keep you away from a trademark that is not legally available.

Let TradeMark Express show you how simple your necessary research can be!

man conducting trademark researchTradeMark Express will search your mark in the pending & registered Federal and State trademark files and in the US National Common-Law files.

Every new business owner needs to ensure that their new business name is legally available. Prior to investing your time, money & effort into a name, a comprehensive trademark search should be conducted to ensure that the name you’re interested in is truly available to use.

This entails searching the pending & registered Federal and State trademark files as well as the US National Common-Law files.

How It Works

We will conduct a free preliminary search of the USPTO TESS database. If clear, we will move to the next research step.

US Federal & State Trademark Research

TradeMark Express will search the pending and registered Federal and State trademark files in accordance with the USPTO’s policy, namely looking for similarities in sound, appearance, or meaning. This involves searching for synonyms, spelling variations, word placement, etc.

US National Common-Law Research

TradeMark Express will search for commercial availability of the mark in over 6500 business databases. Businesses have “first use” or Common-Law rights to their trade names in whatever geographic trade area they serve. The US National Common-Law research will help you to determine if you face any trade restrictions with these established businesses.

If you want to also file for a Federal trademark, consider our premium package. You will save $100 off our trademark preparation service when you order with your needed comprehensive legal research at the same time.

TradeMark Express - $400 Application
Only Package.

This is a perfect package for when you have done your comprehensive legal research elsewhere. We offer free analysis of your prior legal research report, to double-check if it was analyzed correctly and if in fact it is comprehensive. Comprehensive research reports should be in the hundreds of pages. (Ours are usually 600-800 pages.) Hard to miss. Our free review includes trademark attorney review as well.

We never, nor should anyone ever, recommend applying for a trademark without the clearance of a comprehensive trademark search beforehand to prove the name, slogan or logo mark is legally clear BEFORE first use, BEFORE applying for a trademark. The reason is trademark law is much broader in sound, appearance and meaning than you realize. Related goods/services affect you. Channel of distribution, customers as well. Famous names too. A web search or direct hit preliminary search is NOT enough. Although recommended, a light search is NOT a stopping point. It is a beginning.

By statute, the USPTO and CIPO will only research their own databases – never researching State trademarks or common law databases – which make up 88% of what may legally block you. This is why review by a trademark attorney is such a critical need. IF your new mark is infringing on another company’s first use rights under common law, they will have 10 years to find and cease and desist your mark. If they have a prior trademark the USPTO will refuse your application in 8 months. If in Canada, it could take 2 years to be refused.

TradeMark Express does all this to make sure your new trademark application will be accepted and never be opposed.

How It Works

1

Forward your prior attorney performed trademark research report to us for a free analysis. Let’s make sure the basis of your intended new trademark proves you new name, slogan or logo is LEGALLY CLEAR, under trademark law first.

2

TradeMark Express will email you a quick worksheet for you to complete so we may write your trademark application, including a professional representation of your goods or services associated with your trademark. Once received, we will then prepare and submit your Federal trademark application. Please allow 2-3 days service time.

Intent to Use

If you filed as a USPTO Intent-to-Use

The USPTO will send Intent-to-Use applicants a Notice of Allowance, which essentially is your notice that the USPTO is waiting to hear from you if the mark is actively in use. You have 6 months from the date the Notice of Allowance was sent to respond. Failure to do so will result in the cancellation of the trademark.

If you know you will not be in commerce within 6 months of your Notice of Allowance, then it is recommended that an Extension of Use be filed, which is $125 per class. One extension gives applicants an additional 6 months to file the Statement of Use. The USPTO grants 5 extensions, with some exceptions.

TradeMark Express will prepare and file this form for $150.

If you filed as an USPTO Intent-to-Use and are not ready to use the name

You need to be aware that there are additional forms necessary for keeping your Federal trademark active.

There are four applications that TradeMark Express will prepare and file for you.

Once the name is actively in use in commerce (i.e. across state lines or between the US & any other country), the USPTO needs to be notified via a Statement of Use/Amendment to Allege Use form, a $100 per class and a specimen of use.

Failure to file this form will result in the cancellation of the trademark.

TradeMark Express will prepare and file this form for $150.

Our trademark application preparation and filing does not include step-by-step comprehensive research. We will analyze other firm’s research to make sure it is comprehensive before filing. State or Federal USPTO trademark filing fees vary and are not included in the application preparation service. Your filing fee is due when we electronically file your State (filing fees range widely, per State) or Federal USPTO trademark application — $350 per class. Filing fees are separate from TradeMark Express’ service fees.

TradeMark Express Research Analysis

  • Research analysis is the #1 reason to hire TradeMark Express for your research needs.
  • The key to expert research by TradeMark Express is that we patiently review and analyze each search as soon as it is completed, thus enabling you to complete your searches in two steps instead of one.
  • We are not aware of any search company that analyzes its searches for clients. Trademark attorneys will analyze their ordered searches, at their hourly fee.
  • Trademark and common law searches run from 600 to 800 pages of research, from comprehensive search companies — an extraordinary amount of data to pour over in order to decide if a name is truly available.
  • An infringed trade name holder has an indefinite time to enforce its trademark rights against you!
  • TradeMark Express analysis benefits our clients in two ways.
    1. First, it allows us to break the Federal/State Trademark and Commercial Common Law Research (first use) searches for a Step-By-Step approach, (see above).
    2. Secondly, you will not need to take your research to an attorney for review.
  • Exact research conflicts are easily noticed. However, trade name similarities based on the similarity of sound, appearance, and meaning are usually very difficult for the untrained person to find.
  • It is very common for people to either overreact or under-react to any given similarity found in a search. Research experts at TradeMark Express are trained to conduct and analyze each search. This can help online when having to make split-second decisions about what is possibly relevant.
  • We offer a FREE review of your own research or that done by other trademark companies to determine if it had been done comprehensively.
