Hello.  Is there anyone who knows a simple way to research what trademarks (and patents) a company holds? I am supposed to research this, particularly companies in Europe.  I tried the database at OAMI/CTM, but even though I saw trademarks listed on the company's website, they didn't show up on that site.  I also searched esp@cenet for patents and have again come up blank.  What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks to any and all who can offer some guidance.

Is their any liability for trademark infringement for organic results of a Google search, not involving paid advertising?

For example, if a keyword search returns the official website of a company and also a listing for another company with a different name but under a heading which contains the first company's name, is that a trademark violation for anyone?

Even if the second company's website does not use the first company's name but uses the words to describe their business?<...

USPTO - do they do a common law search?

In Trademark Registration    -  updated on 11/11/2009
When trademarks are filed with the USPTO, do they do a common law search to see if the mark is in-use?

Or, do they only limit their searches to the USPTO database?

Are there any other databases they use to check a trademark?

Searching using the USPTO website (TESS)

Anyone know the field code to search for a particular NOA date in the Free Form (advanced) functionality of the TESS online search facility? (ie: [FD] = Filing Date, [RD] = Registration Date.  It seems weird that there appears to be no way to search on a date as significant as the NOA date) Anyone have any insight?

Thanks in advance.

If after doing a "BASIC" trademark search on the USPTO nothing matches, not even partially, does that indicate a high likely hood that the trademark is free? Or is such a "BASIC" search more the beginning of the process to determine if a trademark is free/unregistered?

Any help would be much appreciated! .

Thank you,

Bob

Hey,

I think it's quite easy to do searches on actual words that are trademarked, but how do you search around to see if a certain logo that you are tradmarking is too similar to another companies?  That seems all but impossible.

If you hire a company to design you a really incredible corporate logo, how would you ever be able to tell if it is too similar to another companies?  I mean, there are so many logos with basic shapes and patterns...so everytime I see a great ...

In Trademark Registration    -  updated on 11/11/2009
If I do a federal search and nothing else, and someone has the mark and is a senior user, what is the worst that can happen?   Can they get willful infringement on me?   Is the fact that I did not search further of any significance?

thanks
