Frequently Asked Questions

What is a trademark protectability search?
A trademark protectability search, also known as a trademark clearance search, is an investigation conducted to determine if a particular mark can be registered and protected as a trademark in the U.S. without infringing on the rights of any pre-existing mark.
Why is a trademark protectability search important?
It helps potential trademark registrants avoid legal disputes and potential infringement claims by identifying potential conflicts before filing for registration. Furthermore, it can save time and money by identifying obstacles to registration early in the process.
What is the USPTO?
The USPTO stands for the United States Patent and Trademark Office. It is the federal agency responsible for granting patents and registering trademarks in the U.S.
What databases does one check for a protectability search?
The primary database to check is the USPTO’s online database, TESS (Trademark Electronic Search System). It's also wise to check state trademark databases, domain name registries, and business directories.
Can I conduct a protectability search on my own?
Yes, you can. The USPTO's TESS database is publicly accessible. However, due to the complexities of trademark law and the nuances of searching, many choose to hire professionals to conduct a thorough search.
If my search shows no conflicting marks, am I guaranteed registration?
No. While a clear search reduces the risk of conflicts, the USPTO may still refuse registration based on other factors like descriptiveness, genericness, or potential confusion with a mark not found in your initial search.
How is "likelihood of confusion" determined?
The USPTO examines multiple factors, including the similarity between the marks in sound, appearance, and meaning, the relatedness of the goods/services, and the conditions under which the goods/services will be marketed.
If I find a potential conflict, can I still use the mark?
It depends. If the conflicting mark is in a completely unrelated industry, there might be less risk. However, if there's a high likelihood of confusion, it's advisable to reconsider using the mark or consult with a trademark attorney.
How can a trademark attorney assist with the protectability search?
A trademark attorney can provide expertise in structuring and conducting a comprehensive search, interpreting results, and offering legal advice on the risks associated with using or registering a particular mark.

Trademark Protectability Search - Understanding and Safeguarding Your Intellectual Property


In today's competitive business landscape, safeguarding your intellectual property is paramount to secure your brand identity and maintain a competitive advantage. One essential step in this process is conducting a comprehensive trademark protectability search. This article will delve into the significance of trademark searches, how they are performed, and why they are crucial for businesses in the US.

What is a Trademark Search? 

A trademark search is a systematic examination aimed at determining the availability and protectability of a proposed trademark. Before launching a new product or service, businesses must conduct this search to ensure that their chosen trademark is unique and not infringing on any existing registered marks. By identifying potential conflicts early on, companies can avoid costly legal disputes and protect their brand's reputation.

Conducting a Trademark Protectability Search

To perform a successful trademark protectability search, businesses can employ various strategies and tools. Keyword-based searches, like the "trademark search" or "trade mark USA" phrases, are commonly used in the initial stages. These searches help identify potential conflicts by comparing the proposed trademark with existing registered marks, ensuring compliance with US trademark laws.

Importance of Trademark Protectability

Protecting your trademark is vital for several reasons. Firstly, it prevents unauthorized use of your brand, ensuring that customers can associate your products or services uniquely with your business. Secondly, it establishes your exclusive rights over the mark, giving you the power to take legal action against infringing parties. A strong trademark enhances brand recognition, consumer trust, and overall business value.

US Trademark Laws and Protectability

In the US, trademark protection is governed by federal and state laws. To achieve nationwide protection, businesses must register their trademarks with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Conducting a comprehensive trademark search before filing the application is essential as it minimizes the risk of rejection due to pre-existing similar marks.
