finding out if taglines are taken

Posted by . updated on 11/11/2009
Does anyone know a website where you can search to see if your advertising tagline is already trademarked? I know one exists, I just lost the site.

Thanks!

Do you mean a site other than the Trademark Electronic Search Service (TESS)?

To be clear, TESS will not tell you if a mark is "trademarked", only if it is registered.  

The appearance of a registration in TESS does not necessarily mean the mark is unavailable for use and/or registration.  Conversely, the absence of a registration on a particular  mark does not necessarily mean it is free for use (or registration, for that matter).

Can anyone comment on whether it is worth it or not to file in Japan, China, Korea etc, from the enforcement and cost perspective?  I have heard that it is very difficult to enforce registered marks in some of the countries over there.

If I wanted to find out how many TM a person had worldwide, where can I find that information?  For free.

I see the US has the USPTO database and the Madrid protocol has a database.    But what about countries that do not belong?  Do they have their own?
