Trademark registration on its own has sometimes proven insufficient in providing the full protection from infringements of conflicting applications. The only way to prevent the registration of the same or similar mark is through the Trademark Watch services which aims to protect the clients’ IP rights through opposition proceedings prior to an application maturing into registration. Blocking a potential infringing marks will avoid you costly and time consuming procedures arising from court proceedings.
Our Trademark Watch Services, which is provided on an annual basis upon your request, includes identifying identical and confusingly similar marks published in the Official Gazette or used in the market or media and notifying you upon identification of said conflicting marks.
An additional surveillance service adapted and provided by our firm is Media Watch. This service includes monitoring means of media; advertising billboards, newspapers, magazines, and TVs, for any mark that might imitate or resemble our client’s mark.
The IP Watch services are to ensure that a valuable asset as a Trademark is protected by keeping it competitive and unique. Whether the infringement is in the nature of counterfeiting of goods and services or simple coincidental similarity, its harmful impact on a clients’ business is avoidable.
