Impact Story: How Our Trademark Search Helped A Company Protect Its Intellectual Property
Impact Story: How Our Trademark Search Helped A Company Protect Its Intellectual Property: Trademark is a sign which differentiates the goods and services of one company from those of other companies. Therefore, it is a common practice among companies to register for trademark protection. But before companies decide to apply for trademark protection, it is advisable to perform a thorough trademark search to ensure that the mark is not already in use by other organization/business in the target markets. Further, by performing an in-depth availability search, companies not only prevent infringement of existing trademarks but also gain other powerful insights from a full availability search. Trademark searches can be conducted using online databases, trademark focused firms, or via the national trademark registries. Depending on the project requirement, one can also opt for the services of a trademark agent or attorney for a mark search.
