Frequently Asked Questions

A trademark search involves looking through trademark databases, business registries, domain name databases, and other resources to find out if a proposed trademark is already in use or registered.

Trademark research helps prevent potential legal disputes by identifying existing similar or identical marks. This step can save you time, money, and effort in the long run.

While it’s possible to do a basic search on your own, a comprehensive search should ideally be conducted by an experienced attorney. They have access to advanced search tools and can interpret the results effectively.

If a similar mark is found, it doesn’t automatically disqualify your trademark. Several factors come into play, such as the relatedness of goods/services, the similarity of the marks, and the likelihood of confusion.

While a clear trademark search can increase the likelihood of registration, it doesn’t guarantee it. The final decision rests with the trademark office.

The duration can vary depending on the complexity of the mark and the scope of the search. However, a typical search might take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks.

If you plan to expand your business internationally, it’s advisable to conduct a trademark search in those countries as well.

Ideally, you should conduct trademark research whenever you plan to introduce a new product, service, or sub-brand.
