Trade Mark Searching

In a busy marketplace, a strong trade mark can help your business stand out in the crowd. In fact, it can be one of your most valuable marketing tools, working to identify your brand and show consumers who you are.

Your trade mark may not necessarily be a logo. It could be a letter, number, word, phrase, sound, smell, picture, movement or packaging aspect, or even a combination of these; it’s a distinguishing mark used to identify your unique brand.

With Aperture Insight’s Trade Mark Searching service, our specialists will ensure the trade mark you wish to register is available, checking no similar trade mark’s, registered or pending, exist before you file your application with IP Australia.

Aperture Insight can support your business by:

  • establishing whether your trademark is available for registration
  • reducing likelihood of objections being raised during registration process
  • identifying possible infringements your proposed trade mark may have on others
  • reducing risk of future trade mark disputes

Design Searching

In today’s creative world, understanding where your idea and design sits in the competitive landscape is key to maintaining your player advantage. Determine whether your design is new and distinctive or if it infringes the rights of another creator.

Shape, configuration, pattern and ornamentation are all visual features that, when applied to your creation, make it unique. They make it yours.

A registered design provides the legal blueprint to protect your creation. Stand out from the crowd with certainty.

Aperture Insight analysts are highly trained in various types of design searches:

  • Australia and International Freedom to Operate searches
  • Design novelty search
  • Design proprietor / designer name searches
