Trademark Searching

It is highly recommended that any search be performed either by an intellectual property attorney or a professional search firm that specializes in trademark searches. A trademark or service mark search is performed prior to filing a trademark or service mark application. The search is performed to determine the availability of a mark for identifying the source of a product or service you provide or intend to provide. This type of search should include marks registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, marks registered with individual states, and common law marks that are unregistered at either the federal or state level. Trademark watch reports can also be performed to identify improper use of a registered mark.

Trademark Searching Databases
A free database to conduct a search of federally registered trademarks is available at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office.

Free databases to conduct a search of common law marks (i.e., marks not necessarily registered at the federal or state level) is as follows:

Commercial Trademark Searching Databases (for federal and state registered marks and also unregistered marks) include the following:
