What is an identical trademark search?23-05-10
An identical trademark search provides results of marks exact to the mark searched in the language requested. An identical mark in another language, script, or class than the one searched for will not appear in the report. This type of search is crucial because if a proposed trademark is identical or similar to an existing trademark, it may lead to confusion among consumers and result in legal disputes. If any identical or similar trademarks are found, they may need to be modified or abandoned to avoid potential legal issues. It is essential to perform an identical trademark search before filing a trademark application to ensure the proposed trademark is unique and available for registration.
