Trademark monitoring

The person who has registered their trademark may always meet the risk that competitors, both knowingly and accidentally, register the identity in related areas.

There is a high probability that an expert as a person not otherwise involved in your business can consider other declared trademark designation not similar to yours and carry out its registration. Thus, the competitor designation might get registered and you will have to deal with this trouble. Monitoring will help to identify such cases in proper time and draw up opposition to registration of competitors designation. Monitoring is also useful in case the right holder suspects that the competitors are already fully prepared for the registration process and even have started it.

It is very important to reveal similar trademark designations in proper time. A period of time when identical trademarks can be litigated is five years. It is also important to detect and stop the process of registration of identical trademark at the stage of examination by Rospatent.

Trademarks monitoring is carried out using Russia’s most extensive and continuously updated database of registered trademarks - FIPS (subordinate to Rospatent). Using the same database it is also possible to track the applications submitted for registration.

As a result of the illegal use of trademark, the right holders may incur not only financial, but also reputational losses. Violators who use a borrowed or similar trademark may not take the challenge to produce quality goods or provide quality services.
