Thorough Trademark Search Report

IMPORTANCE OF A PROPER SEARCH

Trademarks are serious business, with potentially serious penalties, including the possibility of having to change your name and/or logo, you need to get right, and do it properly at the beginning.

Searching for trademark availability is not the same as searching to register a business name or domain name, it is far more complex than you think.

Considerations when searching:

  • Is my name registrable?
  • Is my name going to infringe upon another trademark in relation to goods and/or services?
  • Is my name too similar to another?
  • Have you conducted your search correctly?

You also to see if any mark/logo or name has already been registered or applied for that is similar to your mark and used on related products or for related services.

You need to be very careful, your trademark may be refused because a similar mark is already registered for related products or services.....you would then have to start all over again, you need to do it right, and do it right at the beginning.

It is extremely important before you file, that you have a reasonable clear indication of likely-hood of success.

Also, once you file an application you may not know the results of your application for up to 3-4 months after filing.

The Search and report will paint a far clearer picture as to where you stand now, and in the future in relation to your use of your brand in Australia, the report will also provide recommendations in relation to how best to protect your brand in Australia before filing an application.
