Trade Mark Watching or Monitoring Service

Why should you monitor your registered trade marks?

Our watching service provides your business with the advantage of promptly addressing actual or potential infringement of your trade marks.

It will also enable you to take steps to prevent the dilution of your trade mark, which occurs when the Trade Marks Office allows similar marks to proceed to registration and will impact upon the enforceability of your trade mark.

How does it work?

With our trade mark watching service, you will be notified once a trade mark application has been filed for such a mark (searches done monthly).

The team at Progressive Legal will then work with you to take action to prevent that mark from proceeding to registration and, if necessary, prevent any infringement of your registered trade mark rights.

Our watching service can also be applied to your competitors’ trade marks to ensure that you are in the know at all times. Watching services on competitors will allow you to determine their business’ brand strategies and, if necessary, provide the opportunity for you to oppose any trade mark that you believe to be infringing upon your brand(s).

What are your options?

We offer tailored trade mark watching services, allowing you to choose a monthly watching service relating to:

  1. your brand(s) on the relevant trade marks registers;
  2. your competitor’s brand(s) on the relevant trade marks registers; and/or
  3. a particular application with the intention of engaging in opposition proceedings.

How much does it cost?

The basic cost for our watching service is $90 + GST per trade mark, per country, per month.

No lock-in contract, cancel anytime.
