Once your trademark is registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), it is vitally important to monitor the status of your registration. The USPTO does not necessarily inform you that your trademark is about to expire, or of other maintenance requirements that may apply to your mark. Failure to monitor your registration status can result in the loss of your valuable trademark rights. To prevent this from happening, Grant’s Law Firm can monitor the status of your registrations.
Additionally, it is also important to take action against any potentially infringing uses of your trademarks. Early detection of potential trademark infringement is critical because the failure to properly defend your trademark against trademark infringers could diminish the strength of your trademark, and may even result in abandonment or cancellation of your registration. Our monitoring service will provide regular searches for potential infringers and conflicting uses of your trademark, which will ensure that your trademark is being protected.
Our Monitoring Service ($500/year) includes:
- Weekly searches for any newly filed trademark application and newly published trademark application that is confusingly similar to trademarks in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office database
- Monitoring of your trademark registration renewal and maintenance dates
- Reports sent via e-mail on a regular basis
Please be advised that, although watching all applications that are filed with the USPTO is extremely beneficial, broader watches are available which additionally watch state trademark registrations, trade directories, telephone books, and international marks. These broader watching services are available at a higher cost.
