Why get a trademark search?
No matter how small your business is, or what industry you’re in, you need to make sure that your business name is available. If your trademark is too close to someone else’s, you may be forced to rebrand. Coming up with a new name and website address, buying new business cards and signage, and renaming business accounts is time consuming and expensive. The worst part is losing all of the goodwill and brand recognition you’ve worked so hard for. The best way to avoid this headache is to get a trademark search.
Why get a comprehensive search?
You can search the USPTO’s records for free, so why pay for a comprehensive search? Unless you are an expert searcher, the free search at the USPTO only searches for direct hits. A search for “Googel” turns up no conflicting trademarks, even though using that trademark would get you in hot water. Moreover, a USPTO search only searches USPTO records. If someone hasn’t registered their trademark, you’ll have no idea it’s out there. Finally, search results can be difficult to interpret and having an attorney evaluate and explain the results can make the difference. Even the USPTO recommends hiring an attorney to perform a comprehensive trademark search before filing to register your trademark.
