Important features to know while purchasing Full Search: AUS & NZ TM Searching Package
Why do we need to cover phonetic variations?
Phonetic variations are words that sound-alike creating the possibility of confusion between the two words (for example ‘CAT’ and ‘KAT’). Phonetic equivalents are important because they indicate how an existing mark may be perceived by a consumer as, too similar to your proposed mark.
If phonetically equivalent marks exist in the same industry there is a strong possibility of consumer confusion and the proposed mark may be rejected. Thus, it is important for businesses to search phonetic variation of their word or mark that they are going to use.
Why is it needed to do trademark search before filing?
Trademark search is not mandatory as per law, still, it is recommended to ensure distinctiveness and registrability of the intended mark. It also helps business gauge the likelihood of confusion and possibility of trademark infringement at latter stage.
