Features & Benefits

More than one-third of all trademark filings worldwide include a figurative element. This makes searching new logos and designs critical to reduce the risk of a costly infringement. But identifying visually similar trademarks and industrial designs is a specialized skill that is an art in itself.

CompuMark can help, with a comprehensive solution for searching design marks and industrial designs—quickly, accurately and cost-effectively.

Our U.S. Design Search provides the comprehensive information you need to:

  • Avoid Infringement of existing trademarks/logos
  • Support trademark litigation by identifying design marks that advance your client’s position
  • Assess whether your mark is clear for use and/or registration
  • Assess the strength of a design mark for acquisition or licensing purposes

Using our own proprietary database of U.S. Federal (USPTO) design trademark applications and registrations, we cite identical and closely similar design trademarks, in the goods and services classes you specify

We go beyond the USPTO coding process and add supplemental design code categories to identify the most relevant results. Our designs database is updated daily for the most-up-to-date results. Our experienced analysts review your search results to select the most relevant citations, saving you time.
