LegalZoom Trademark Monitoring provides you with timely notice of filings that are similar to the text aspects of your trademark. As a trademark owner, you have a legal right to object to any new trademark applications that may harm your mark. Last year, over 398,000 marks were published for opposition in the Trademark Official Gazette of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). That's over 7,500 trademarks per week.
LegalZoom will monitor all trademark applications as they are filed instead of waiting for them to be published in the Official Gazette. This gives a trademark owner up to 12 additional months to file an Opposition to registration.
After you complete our easy-to-follow questionnaire, LegalZoom will set up your monitoring query based on the text aspects of your trademark. Your monthly report will be emailed to you, indicating any trademark applications that are similar to your mark.
