Trademark search in Tunisia
Trademark search in one of our main trademark services.
Trademark search is one of the most important steps to be accomplished before filing your trademark application in Tunisia.
A trademark is a sign, design or expression which identifies products or services from a particular source. A registered trademarks provide its owner the exclusive use of a mark to identify or represent its products or services.
Trade mark registration is one of the strongest ways to defend a brand and a way to prevent anyone else using it. If you do not register your trade mark, others may do so and acquire your rights to distinguish their goods and services. However, before applying for a new trade mark, it is essential to make sure that you are free to use it in so far as it is not similar or identical to any trade mark already existing (registered) or the subject of an existing pending application for registration of a mark in the same classes of goods or services, this is what means trademark search.
It is also important to regularly consult trade mark databases and the Office’s Official Gazette in order to check if similar or identical trademarks to yours are being registered. You may be interested in taking legal action against someone else’s trade mark application or registration.
When adopting a new trademark it is important to know the risks you are taking. We can map those risks for you through conducting a trademark search. In a trademark search we examine the availability of a trademark by using the tools given to us by law and case law.
