Similarity/identical search service

In accordance with the prescribed procedure for trademark registration, SIPO does not examine the identity/similarity of your trademark with/to the previously applied for/registered trademarks. That is why the search of identity/similarity of verbal and/or figurative marks is an extremely useful step prior to filing for the trademark protection.
The search allows you to find out if there is already a trademark which is identical with or similar to yours, or if there is a potential risk of infringement of somebody else’s IP rights. The results of the search will allow you to make the right decision about filing for the trademark protection, and avoid judicial proceedings, and thus the financial costs.
