Our Patent Citation Watch means you can now get an early heads-up on instances when the PTO examiner cites any patent in your portfolio. Each week we will watch your entire portfolio against all newly issued patents, and report any citation the examiner makes relative to your patents. Now your entire patent portfolio, even third-party patents you want to keep watch over, can be monitored for when they are referenced by an examiner. Just like our trademark-related Bulk TM Watch and 2(d) Citation Watch services, we’re now giving you portfolio-wide patent coverage at an affordable cost. We can also track any specific action noted within the transaction history for any given set of patents. Ask us about how we can best assist your needs.
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.
