Internet Watch: protect your trademark online

Do you have a successful product or service? If so, there is a good chance that someone else will try to make money from your success. A nightmare scenario for any business or enterprise. Especially if the trademark infringement is taking place in the intangible online world of social media, web stores, and auction sites. Our Internet Watch service will warn you immediately about any infringement of your trademark online.


Tracking down online trademark infringement

If you are a trademark holder, it is up to you to track down and take action against any infringement of your trademark rights. That is why more and more businesses are having to devote valuable human resources and expensive web tools to track down violations of their trademark rights on the Internet. Our Internet Watch service is a solution that will help you track down trademark infringement on the Internet efficiently and effectively.


How does Internet Watch work?

Internet Watch is the Internet monitoring subscription service of NLO Shieldmark. It includes an ongoing monthly Internet search, with all the findings presented in a concise and practical report. The monitoring is carried out using a combination of advanced software and human detective work. Based on your specific search instructions, we will report on any relevant findings that might have legal consequences for you. And if you want to take action against any infringement we have discovered, we will give you practical legal advice and act on your behalf where necessary.


What does Internet Watch involve?

The Internet monitoring subscription can be taken out for a period of one year for a fixed price. During that period, you will receive 12 monitoring reports. The monitoring reports will include details of the domain name that has been found, a description of the website found, details of the domain name holder and a risk assessment in relation to the website found compiled by a trademark attorney.

A payment is requested for a publication in a register or to extend the validity of a registration.They use names like Worldwide database or Trademarks and Patents, Euro IP Register, International Patent & Trademark Database.
