Determine the availability of your proposed trademark for use and registration in specific countries worldwide. Our International Full Searches pinpoint identical trademarks, variant spellings, phonetic equivalents and similar marks in more than 200 countries and registers. Choose individual countries/registers to search, or select a regional package to meet your needs.
Our International Full Searches provides the information you need to:
- Assess the strength of a mark for acquisition or licensing purposes.
- Avoid infringement of existing trademarks.
- Support trademark litigation by identifying identical and similar trademarks and that could bar the use or registration of a trademark.
Using our unique in-house search system and proprietary trademark databases, or our network of highly qualified foreign associates, we search your proposed trademark against active trademark registrations. European Union trade marks are automatically searched for EU member countries and International registrations requesting protection in the country searched are included for members of the Madrid Agreement or Madrid Protocol. We report applications and, for many countries, unpublished applications (status before registration). English translations of goods and services are provided for all non-English searches.
