We have now added the Canadian trademark database (CIPO) to our searching and monitoring services. We have made some adjustments to our system to handle that Canada not yet fully use the Nice classification system.
The price for a Comprehensive Search, or a Full Availability Search, as some providers call it, is set at USD 81 (or 59 EUR). For that you get our best-in-class similarity search algorithm that finds 99% of all confusingly similar trademarks – and with less "noise”. It is actually the best trademark similarity search in the world (see search report here).
Do you want to try one Comprehensive Search Report for free? Send me an email and I will send you the promotion code (benoit at markify.com).
We also offer our Knockout Plus Search for Canada for only USD 40. This is “broad” knockout, finding both identical, phonetically identical and other very similar results. Approx. 60% of all potential conflicts but with only 10% of the list length. This is the professional choice for any name screening project or for an application on a tight budget.
To order, you just sign up here: http://www.markify.com/services/comprehensive-search.html
You find the watching service here and the yearly price is only USD 34. Every week you get one report per client. And you get the same strong similirity algorithm so you will not miss any potential conflicts. Combine it with US watch if you need.

“Listen to the customer” is a popular, and often a very good, advice when you develop your products and services. We didn’t just listen, we sat down with some of our best trademark attorney clients and discussed for hours.
“How can we at Markify help you serve your clients better?” was our main question.
The core answer, from both small and big firms, was rather simple:
“We like your searching and watching services. We love the accuracy of your trademark search algorithm. And the Markify pricing is amazing.
But, your services need to cover more trademark, domain name and common law databases.”
So the last year our team have been busy adding new databases to our comprehensive searching and monitoring services for trademarks and domain names.
Our geographical focus in this process has been the 28 EU countries, the US and the new gTLDs. We start here, but we will not stop here . . .
You find detailed descriptions, samples and pricing of our new offers here:
We truly understand the value of your feedback. It is what helped build these services in the first place. So any more feedback is highly appreciated!
Markify is now adding domain names from all the new gTLDs, as they are being released, to our global Domain Name Watch service. And the price remains the lowest in the industry: $29/year per watched brand.
If you are in the process of evaluating different domain name watch services (sometimes called Brand Monitor, Brand Alert or Domain Monitor), you should know that there two things that set Markify apart:
1. Similar results
We will not only give you identical matches of the brand, but also phonetically identical and phonetically similar results. To our knowledge, no one else does this.
So if you are Pepsi Co and want to be alerted when confusingly similar domain names are being registered, you will get reports with results like this from us:
- PEPSI. de
2. Best price
We believe all brands should be able to afford a domain name watch. And the cost for monitoring your brands at Markify is only $29/year per watched brand.
For this price we will watch your brand in the old (.com, .net, .org etc) and new gTLDs and in more than 200 ccTLDs (.de, .fr, .se, .jp etc).
This low price also means that you can easily monitor hundreds of brands. A lot of trademark attorneys put in their whole portfolio of trademarks into the Markify domain name watch system. Then they offer their clients to monitor the reports for a fee (maybe $200/year). And when there is an infringing domain name, they alert the client and may get new work. A win-win situation.
If you have found a better or cheaper domain name monitor service, please send me an email at benoit at markify.com. Thanks!
Markify is exhibiting at INTA 2013 meeting in Dallas. If you are in Dallas make sure you come by our booth to get some very interesting offers.
One of our offers is:
Global Domain Name Watch including all the new gTLDS coming later this year +200 of the older gTLDs and ccTLDs. All for $29/year per watched name.
This way you can offer all clients a monitoring service that finds not only identical but also similar domain names. And at a price much lower than the Trademark Clearing House.

In this blog I will mostly write about two subjects:
1. Trademarks, domain names, naming and branding - Four separate areas that often are not that separate.
2. Markify news - Features, markets, pricing, challenges etc.
