World’s Largest Trademark Filer Selects Markify as Trademark Search and Watch Provider

See the press release at:

Why should this interest you? Because of why LegalZoom selected us.

There were three main reasons LegalZoom selected Markify, a technology focused provider, and not another supplier: 1) quality, 2) effectiveness and 3) price.

1. Search result quality

LegalZoom processes around 30.000 trademark filings a year. That is probably more than any other company in the world.

At that scale you simply cannot afford to have a trademark search system that fails, that misses what you should have found. Because then you will be wrong so many times, that you will eventually not have a filing business.

LegalZoom tested us thoroughly during many months, in parallel with other providers’ systems, before they took the decision to go with Markify. That is a proof of quality, that I also think is relevant to all our clients.

2. Effective tools and automated processes

At the scale of 30.000 filings, and at that end user price, you need the fastest, most effective trademark search tools you can get.

If there is a trademark attorney or paralegal analyzing the results, they must have the tools to very fast be able to determine what is relevant and what is not, without missing any pertinent results.

When there is no human analysis done, you need the fully automated process.

You also need all other processes, like order, search, report creation and email communication, to be fully automated. With our wide range of trademark API’s you get that 100% automated process.

If you want to discuss how we can help you streamline your trademark search/watch process, just contact us for a discussion.

3. Aggressive pricing

At that scale, price is obviously a very important factor. Markify have always had the lowest prices in the trademark search industry and we will continue to deliver the best pricing.

If you ever think our pricing is not the best, that you can get something similar at a better price, please send us a note so we can correct that.

Benefit for all Markify clients

I believe all our clients will benefit from this deal since it brings scale to our business and will let us continue to add trademark databases and create more innovative trademark search and monitoring technology.

Now anyone can afford a Comprehensive Search Report

The Markify trademark search has since the start 18 months ago been recognized as the most accurate and comprehensive in terms of finding confusingly similar trademarks. Now we add new databases and new features to make it even more useful in our two main markets: the US and the EU.

To our current databases, USPTO and CTM, we now add:

  • US common law – A search among more than 15 million registered US businesses.
  • Domain names –  Confusingly similar domain names in .com, .net, .org, .info, .us and .biz. Identical hits from approx. 200 ccTLDs.
  • WIPO – More than 600.000 international trademarks.

The new Comprehensive Search Report from Markify has four features no other search provider have:

1. Superior accuracy

We are the only search provider that can give you a result list that finds 99% of all confusingly similar trademarks (see benchmark report where Markify was ranked number 1.

Our result list also contain much less “noise” than other full availability reports. Instead of going through a list of say 2.000 results, you get a list of 300 results. This ofcourse saves you lots of time.

How is it possible for us to give you all the relevant results but skip the bad ones?

The Markify trademark search s is a built on a statistical method using more than 10.000 actual cases where a likelihood of confusion has been established by a governement official, in the US or in Europe.

To our knowledge, no other trademark search algorithm is built like that.

2. Relevance ranked results

The Markify Comprehensive Search Reports are relevance ranked (so is in fact the free trademark search also). This means that you in most cases will find your potential conflicts on the first pages. Talk about time saving.

The relevance ranking is also built on the statistical case law data.

3. Custom branding

You can easily customize the report and put your own branding on it if you choose. Once you have bought the data, you can customize and download as many variants of the report as you like.

4. Unmatched price: $100

We believe every brand deserves a safe start.

Most entrepreneurs and start-ups work on a very tight budget. Until now most of them have skipped a full availability search, because a price of $300-$600 has not seem attractive.

We aim to change that. We start by putting a rock-bottom low price on our two Comprehensivie Search Report packages: only $100 for the US Comprehensive or the EU Comprehensive.
