Before entering into a particular market with your brand name a quick search for similar brand name/ trademark helps to avoid legal disputes in future which may hamper brands name and affect business growth. A simple knock-out search to identify the most obvious risks for your brand is always a good idea. A knock-out search is quick and cost-effective search where search can be performed quickly using trademark database combined with the Google. But there is very high chance of missing some similar names that could conflict with the name you want. In case entrepreneur is planning to use the brand worldwide and going to invest huge in brand development, one should go for comprehensive trademark search where similarity search is performed using all possible variation of the name like plurals, with extended characters, reverse words, phonetical identical and so forth. It’s advisable to use additional Database such as domain name databases, business publication, company name database, Trademark office database, press releases, etc. The analyst need to do more meaningful and thoughtful comparison after getting the results before proceeding further and taking any decision.

Orbit Trademark tool provides a common platform to search for trademarks in diverse jurisdiction of registers. The tool provides Multi Criteria and Similar Phonetical Search.
