We’re happy to announce that the latest World Trademark Review magazine (Oct/Nov ’11) includes an article on “10 of the best online trademark tools“, in which our own 2(d) Citation Watch has been listed. Although technically not an online tool (although it is delivered via email and will eventually be downloadable as well) it further proves that the uniqueness and value of this service is what counts. Copies of the article are available upon request.
Just launched is our new TM search tool to assist your clearance and knockout searches, by providing you with one-of-a-kind information to help you predict prosecution outcomes. Armed with examples of similar marks that have been previously opposed or refused by the examiner under 2(d) or 2(e), you can now make more informed decisions and have the inside scoop on potential obstacles you may encounter! Moreover, using this info to prepare your response to office actions or appeals can save you considerable time down the road, and we can easily refresh your results months later with the most up-to-date information from the PTO. Results are delivered to you within 24 hours (in many cases even same day) on our secure online portal. See first hand how this amazing tool can streamline and augment your own clearance process.
Just returned from the annual INTA conference where we had the opportunity to network with some of our existing clients as well as to meet potential new ones. As you can imagine, having the opportunity to meaningfully engage your client base, especially attorneys pressed for time, is a real challenge to most service providers. But it can be a very rewarding and insightful exercise… in a word, invaluable. We have some interesting new idea kernels to chew on, which will no doubt lead to more innovative products we hope to soon launch! Thanks to everyone we had the opportunity to meet, present to, and dialogue with. You ideas help incubate and evolve our products, so stayed tuned.
