Benefits of a trademark search
What is the benefit of conducting a trademark search in advance of applying?
While completing a trademark search is not mandatory when filing an application to register a trademark, we usually recommend you conduct trademark screening/registrability searches in advance of applying for your trademark. The purpose is to determine the likelihood of success in your trademark application.
Searches allow you to check for similar existing marks to ensure you do not use a mark that may already be in use or is confusingly similar to a pre-existing mark (which if used may result in legal action against you or the entity you represent).
