After registration, watch your trademark
The protection of a trademark, product name, or company involves a series of variables that require much more than a simple registration procedure.
During the life cycle of your trademark, our trademark watch service is one of the most important steps, allowing you to follow up on any attempts to register trademarks that are identical or similar to yours. Sometimes, this type of situation may even occur deliberately, being brought about by third parties, who, for whatever reason, intend to damage your trademark, as is the case with attempts at counterfeiting.
By this we mean the timely detection of any infringements that may be detrimental for your business. This, implicitly, means that it is necessary to put the trademark watch service into action as soon as your trademark is registered.
Inventa works with a team of highly-experienced experts. We monitor our customers’ markets and look out for illicit activities or situations that may be a source of conflict in any way, such as applications for identical or similar trademarks.
Since this a highly-sensitive field, which requires swift resolution measures, timing becomes a key factor, helping you with all preventative work and providing you with adequate responses.Request Quote
What we do
Every day, Inventa’s teams analyze the official bulletins naming new trademarks and monitor the market to detect any movement that might harm or violate your trademark. We rely on a vast network of contacts, as well as the latest cutting-edge technology, to ensure permanent monitoring.
We use an intersection of algorithms and technological systems in order to provide you with activity reports and indicators specifying those trademarks that may affect your business. To that end, we analyze:
Characters, words, or phrases whose phonetics may refer to your trademark.
Images or visual elements identical or similar yours.
In addition to this survey, our team provides you with the best strategies to adopt in response to any infringements against your Intellectual Property.
Monitor your the entire process of your trademarks' life cycle, from the preparation for an application to its watch and after-care. Inventa will accompany you every step of the way.
With your help, we identify the trademark to be registered and point out the elements worthy of protection, according to Trademark Law.
We define the best registration strategy, depending on the jurisdiction in which you wish to obtain protection, taking into consideration the many regional/international mechanisms for international protection.
Since the costs may vary depending on the number of classes, we identify the international classes corresponding to the goods/services you wish to market with your trademark.
At this moment, you should conduct a trademark search (optional but highly recommended), be it with or without a legal opinion, in order to identify whether the trademark is free to be registered.
We analyze whether the formal requirements have been met and submit the application for registration to the respective PTO.
During this phase, the relevant PTO will analyze whether your trademark is confusingly similar to previous trademark. We monitor the process up to the final granting.
After the publication of the trademark, third parties may submit an opposition against it being granted. We can respond to any objections, with the aim of ensuring that your trademark is registered.
You can extend the protection of your trademark at any time through national, regional, or international registrations in other jurisdictions.
Obtaining the rights to a trademark is of no use if you do not then exercise these rights. Therefore, it is necessary to be always on the lookout for infringements.
