We will also look at the availability of the most common domain names suitable for your trademark.

The Comprehensive Search are suitable for you when you need more accurate information and more details about the possibility to get your trademark registered and used in the country/countries where you are planning to launch.

The service includes:

  • Search in relevant trademark databases for both identical and phonetically and confusingly similar marks
  • Search in relevant company name databases
  • Search for relevant domain names
  • Engine search to find non-registered trademarks at relevant markets

Remember that it might take several years to get a trademark registration in some countries – the proactive process is extremely important to make sure that you get your registration in place in time.

Registration can be made in:

  • Each country separately – The registration process is handled by each countries trademark authority.
  • In a region like EU or Africa – EU trademarks are handled by EUIPO and the trademark are applied in 28 countries directly.
    In Africa, you can apply through OAPI (French old colonies) in 17 countries directly or ARIPO.
  • WIPO – World Intellectual Property Organization – A total of 99 countries are part of the World Intellectual Property Organization. Through the organization, we can apply for your trademark with one single application in all the member countries – with much lower fees than applying for each country separately.

Otmore is also a certified representative for EU-trademarks under EUIPO.

We are INTA members – The International Trademark Association (INTA) is a global association of trademark owners and professionals dedicated to supporting trademarks and related intellectual property.

Trademark Renewals

When registered, the Trademark is valid for (most common) 10 years. After that you have to renew it. Otmore can handle Trademark renewals in all jurisdictions and also secure that all details in your application are updated if necessary. Remember, that you also have to use the Trademark to be able to keep the registration if someone tries to cancel the mark.

Because of the long renewal timeline, we sometimes see trademark where the owner actually has forgot to renew it. Try not to be one of them! Contact us to find out how we can secure your trademark portfolio.

Office Action

When you apply for a Trademark the authority will examine your application. Different jurisdictions have different rules. If your application doesn’t fulfil the requirements needed, you will be sent an irregularity notice. For example, the process within OHIM (CTM-marks) is the following:

  • Classification – The goods and services you seek protection for are reviewed to see if they have been correctly classified and their nature has been clearly indicated
  • Formalities – All the details you have entered on your application are reviewed to make sure that everything is as it should be; the signature, languages, owner and/or representative data, priority and/or seniority claims are all reviewed.
  • Absolute grounds – Your trade mark is analysed to see whether it is distinctive but not descriptive.
  • Translation – Your trade mark application is translated so that details of it can be published in all the official languages of the European Union.

We carry out a search in the CTM database for identical and/or similar marks. The results are sent to you before we publish your trade mark application.

Otmore will assist you in invalidity and revocation proceedings in all jurisdictions.
