Trademark search is a prudent act before starting the use of a new trademark. Search discloses any identical trademark which is already in use by someone else and who for this reason can stop you at some later stage from the use of your trademark thereby causing you a loss.
Further if there is some other trademark already registered and which is identical or same to your applied trademark, your application may be rejected for registration by the trademark registry on the ground of likelihood of confusion.
Therefore search is something very beneficial for tow reasons:
- To avoid any infringement
- To avoid rejection for the likelihood of confusion
At Intellectual Property Logium we offer trademark searches. Our trademark search report would list identical or similar marks appearing on the Registry. In Pakistan Trademark Search is applied on a prescribed form TM-55 whereby on one form one Trademark Search in one class is applied.
