The last months we’ve been busy building a whole set of new search and monitoring services for trademarks and domain names. Some of these services are tailored for start-ups and brand owners and some for the trademark professionals.
At the same time we have added some useful trademark and domain databases.
The launch of these services is taking place at the opening of INTA 2012 in May in Washington DC.
The new services and databases have been bundled into three packages with a very competitive pricing:
1. Brand Protect Kit at $5/month
Every living brand deserves to be protected.
Our new Brand Protect Kit is designed to give the brand owner a broad protection at a very little cost. The package includes four different watch and monitoring services, covering both trademarks and domain names on a global scale:
- Trademark watch (1) for the US , EU (CTM) and International (WIPO) – Finding 99% of conufsingly similar new trademark applications. Only with Markify.
- Global domain name watch (1) – Finding conufsingly similar new domains
- Competitor/Owner monitoring (4) – Get alerted about new trademark applications by your competitors
- Category monitoring (4) – A combined class and key word monitoring. Only with Markify.

2. Pro Watch Platform at $5/month
The new Pro Watch Platform is a trademark and domain name watch service, designed both for the inhouse attorney and for the law firm that wishes to give all its’ clients a powerful Brand Protect Kit.
For only $50/month you can easily create 25 Brand Protect Kits, all in your custom branding. A powerful tool to give clients a “first line” protection against trademark infringement.

3. Comprehensive Search Reports at $100
I have talked to a lot of trademark attorneys serving small and medium sized businesses They all say the same thing: clients can’t afford to spend +$500 on a comprehensive search before they do their application for a trademark registration.
We set out to change this. So we added US common law , Global domain name (200 TLDs) and WIPO to our already existing databases USPTO and CTM. Then we put the price tag at $100.
Every brand deserves a safe start .

Effects on current services
The free trademark search result list will be limited to the “Very similar” results. It will continue to show how many total results each search produced but the list will only display the “Very similar” results.
After studying thousands of free trademark search users we think this change won’t affect most users. The vast majority are only looking at the first couple of result pages, where you find the “Very similar” results. The rest of the results are generally only studied by trademark attorneys working on a clearance report.
The Free trademark watch for USPTO and CTM remains untouched.
All current Pro customers are being transferred to the new Pro platform.
Our API users will affected in the same way as the free search is affected. The API will from now give you access to the “Very similar” results.
If you have any questions or feedback, don’t hesitate to contact me.
