Registering a trademark is the first step towards protecting your brand name. A trademark is a symbol and can be anything from a name, picture, and word to even a label or a sound. Once registered, it can be a precious asset for a business as with a trademark, the business can project its unique positioning to the consumers.
To ensure you have full control over it, you need to keep a close watch on all the probable attempts by other businesses and individuals to register similar trademarks, even if these are related to other domains. While the Registrar does have its own set of rules for approving trademarks, it is not enough to ensure that no similar or identical brand names are registered. This is where a trademark watch comes in; it will keep you informed of any similar brand names across the web or new applications at the trademark office, both in India and globally.
There are a number of benefits that a trademark watch service can bring to your business-
The whole idea of registering a trademark for a business is to assert its rights. Once your trademark gets registered, you may think that your rights are covered. But, this does not happen always. All new trademark applications need to go through scrutiny by an official trademark examiner. However, an examiner, due to lack of knowledge or otherwise, may still approve a new trademark with competing similarities. An efficient trademark watch service can prevent such a situation in time and can protect your legal rights. It would keep you informed of any attempts to register a trademark, having any kind of resemblance (visual, phonetic etc) to that of your own. The earlier a trademark misuse is identified, the easier it is for you to act against such infringements and to enforce your trademark rights.
For you to be in control of your brand value, you must know how it (and similar words) is being used in public. A Trademark Watch will keep you apprised of how the brand value is being used even outside your industry.
