Can You Do Your Own Trademark Search?

Searching a trademark database, such as the USPTO, is fairly simple, and can be done by anyone. It is not nearly as complex as a patent search. However, the value of a professional search lies in the legal opinion. A trademark attorney will provide a legal opinion on whether a trademark is available for registration, or whether infringement may occur.

Availability of a trademark depends on whether a new mark would create a likelihood of confusion between the new mark and an existing trademark. There are many factors to consider when evaluating a likelihood of confusion, including similar words, images, industries, trade channels, target market, market sophistication, similar sounding words, and overall commercial impression.
