Intellectual Property Watching, Content Monitoring and Anti-Counterfeiting
Monitoring IP is a core part of our service. Early warnings as to potential third party infringement of intellectual property rights allows prompt action to be taken at a stage when it is usually far quicker and cheaper to resolve the matter and before increasing damage occurs.
Watch services provide an alert when a third party seeks to register a trade mark, domain name or company name that incorporates your brand or other IP.
We can also monitor competitors so that a client is notified of new trade marks filed by a competitor, or of new applications filed by third parties for goods/services in the same business sector.
Online content monitoring services help identify platforms where infringing activity is taking place, whether unauthorised sales of genuine product or counterfeiting.
Our services include:
- trade mark watch services
- company name watch services
- domain name watch services
- competitor monitoring
- sector monitoring
- online brand usage
- online content monitoring
