Find out whether your product, name or logo is as new as you think it is
If you are considering applying for a patent or trade mark it is essential that you do some initial searching first - just because a product or trade mark is not on the market does not necessarily mean it is new. Time spent searching can save you a lot of time and money further along the line.
It is also important to try to ensure that you do not infringe the intellectual property rights of others. Checking existing patents and trade marks can also be an effective way of monitoring your competitors.
Business & IP Centre Leeds can show you how to search trade mark and patent databases to help determine whether your product or trade mark is new.
