Trademark Monitoring Program

Take a look at our NEW Trademark Monitoring Program

Why this Program Applies to You

CLARK.LAW is excited to introduce a new trademark monitoring system to empower our clients with a simple and powerful tool for policing their trademarks. CLARK.LAW Trademark Monitoring Program was designed specifically for trademark owners to help you fulfill your duty to preserve the integrity of your marks and control your rights as trademark owners.  If your trademarks are not properly monitored and policed, they can significantly lose their value and potentially cease functioning as trademarks resulting in the loss of rights by their trademark owners.

With our annual subscription, we will monitor any unauthorized third-party uses of your marks, third-party uses of confusingly similar marks, and ensure proper uses by trademark owners or their approved trademark licensees. The CLARK.LAW Trademark Monitoring Program will timely detect any trademark infringement activity or improper use of trademarks and alert trademark owners regarding potential registration of confusingly similar or identical marks by others.

 

Your Options

1.    USPTO Only. Our USPTO Only option monitors only activity at the United States Patent and Trademark Office.  If (a) someone files a trademark application that is identical or confusingly similar to your mark or (b) a trademark application is approved for publication that is identical or confusingly similar to your mark, we will notify you.

What you can expect: a report identifying potentially confusingly similar marks filed with the USPTO, a brief analysis of those references by an experienced trademark attorney, and recommendations for proceeding.  The report is generated and sent every other month.

2.    Comprehensive Monitoring – United States.  Our Comprehensive Monitoring – United States option tracks a wide range of sources.  In addition to monitoring activity at the United States Patent and Trademark Office as described above, we also pull information from a variety of common law databases, domain name records, trademark records in each state, secretary of state records in each state, and more.  This service provides you with a robust view of the overall trademark landscape relative to your mark(s).

What you can expect: a comprehensive report identifying the most problematic third-party references found in the federal and all 50 state trademark databases, relevant common law uses, and business and domain name records found in the United States.  All references are summarized and analyzed by the trademark attorney, who will also provide recommendations for proceeding. The report is generated and sent every other month.

3.    Comprehensive Monitoring – Global. Our Comprehensive Monitoring – Global option is our most expansive trademark watch service.  In addition to monitoring the USPTO trademark database, state trademark databases, and the US-based common law sources listed above, we include most of the foreign trademark offices as well.  If your business is global, or if you intend for it to be, this service is invaluable for understanding your ability to scale your brand(s) globally.

What you can expect: your report will have information included in the Comprehensive Monitoring – US report plus prior references filed in over 124 other international jurisdictions.  This is the most in-depth overview to understand the global stage when it comes to your mark. All references are summarized and analyzed by the trademark attorney, who will also provide recommendations for proceeding.  The report is generated and sent every other month.
