TRADEMARK MONITORING

Many trademarks have been registered over the years and more and more applications for trademarks are submitted with the development of the market economy. This often leads to a conflict of interests between different competitors and is the main reason for the development of service TRADEMARK MONITORING. When an application for registration of a trademark is submitted, the Patent Office, as well as the European Union Intellectual Property Office, do not examine whether identical or similar trademarks exist. This is why the service TRADEMARK MONITORING is very useful for every owner of a trademark in order to file an opposition if a third party tries to register identical or similar to his trademark.
