Understanding trademark law internationally is an important step in protecting your brand and growing your business. There was a time when only large businesses and corporations had to consider international trademark registration, but today, nearly any business could have global reach with the Internet. As you grow and expand your business, your trademark strategy should expand as well.

One of the most challenging aspects of protecting a trademark in the world today is protecting the trademark internationally. Because there is not a simple way to ‘globally’ register a trademark in every country, a trademark owner must register its trademark rights in each and every individual country where it seeks protection. This means that you must also search each individual country’s intellectual property database to be sure that you are not infringing on another mark within that country.

Many of the international databases are private, meaning that you need to have credentials to log into the systems to search. However, some of them are public (including the United States Patent and Trademark Office database). We have gathered the links to these databases and included them below.

Please note: you will more than likely need to use Translation software to navigate some of these websites.

Beginning the process to register your trademark in another country – or even multiple countries – can seem like a daunting task, even if you will be utilizing the Madrid Protocol to simplify the process. As international trademark law can be even more nuanced than domestic, it is highly recommended that you engage the services of an experienced trademark attorney. We hope these tips were helpful.  If you have any further questions on obtaining registration of your trademark internationally, the attorneys at Gerben IP can help.
