Trademark Searches

To illustrate the significance of these reports, consider this scenario: Suppose you own a chocolate company named “ZYX” and have successfully completed your registration process. Imagine another individual introducing a candy/chocolate brand called “ZYXI.” Would this not likely lead to confusion among customers? Indeed, it could. As a result, the USPTO is unlikely to register the second brand. Our comprehensive reports aim to prevent situations where businesses find themselves in the latter position, ensuring clarity and distinctiveness in trademark registrations.

Expert Guidance Every Step of the Way

Before proceeding with your application, we provide you with this report along with an opinion letter outlining all identified risks. If your trademark falls within the “low” or “tolerated” risk categories, we proceed to the registration process. However, if your mark is deemed “high” risk, we present potential solutions. Should you choose to proceed despite the identified risks and options, we will handle your decision and assist you accordingly.

The Importance of a Comprehensive Search Report

Let us briefly outline the trademark registration process to ensure your understanding of its significance. Your trademark journey comprises three main stages: the pre-application process, application filing with the USPTO, and post-application process. After the second phase, filing an application does not guarantee immediate registration or exclusive rights to your mark. If the USPTO examiner is unsatisfied with your application, they will issue a notice known as an “Office Action” to explain why they believe your mark may not be registrable. These Office Actions may cause a longer process of registering your mark or even starting from scratch.

By understanding the risks associated with your application through our comprehensive search report, you gain insight into the successful registration and minimize the chances of encountering Office Actions or prolonged registration processes.

To be educated through our comprehensive search report enables you to make well-informed decisions regarding your trademark application, reducing potential challenges and ensuring a more seamless path toward trademark registration.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    While no expedited service is offered for filing through USPTO, diligence is crucial. It's essential to recognize that a USPTO examiner will evaluate your mark for the likelihood of confusion before accepting your application for registration. At Oguz Law, we conduct thorough research to identify and address potential obstacles, such as the likelihood of confusion or descriptiveness that may arise during the USPTO examination process. By proactively addressing these obstacles, we enhance the likelihood of successful registration and minimize the risk of encountering issues with your mark during the examination.

    If the mark you wish to register is labeled as "abandoned," it indicates that it has never been registered and failed to proceed to registration, often due to a lack of response to the USPTO. "abandoned" marks can still be registered. Still, an expert should handle this procedure to mitigate risks associated with the abandonment status.
