Watch Service

If you have registered a design you might also want to know whether other designs are registered that are similar to your design. NLO Shieldmark will be pleased to screen the European register for recently registered Community designs that correspond to your design.


This way you will be informed on time about any infringing designs. And, it is a good way of keeping a close eye on your competitors’ developments.


Should you subscribe to our watch service, we will inform you the moment a third party carries out a design registration that is similar or identical to your design. You may then take action for instance by sending out a warning or initiating invalidity proceedings against the design registration.


Please contact us for more information about protection and our watch service.

Fake invoices

Fake invoices are unfortunately a well known problem among trademark owners. A fake invoice is a misleading invoice (or letter) which reffers to a trademark, design, patent or patent application. 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.

Our advice: don't pay. Please contact us is you have any doubts.
