Trademark watching

Watching of the trademark

A trademark registration is a trademark right. But a trademark right is dynamic. Today the scope of protection could be big, a year later it could be reduced to nihil. It is possible to influcence the scope of protection of your trademark though a regular check on later filed trademarks. We call this a trademark watching service.

Also the law expects you to have a trademark watching service. For, if you do not act against a similar trademark application during a period of 5 year, a legally tolerated co-existence is the result, at least in the Benelux. This could be very undesirable.

With respect to every trademark application that we file for you we directly arrange a trademark watching service. Our automatic trademark watch concerns the monitoring of official trademark registers.

 

Monitoring the market
