In this video, Meehle & Jay attorney Davey Jay talks about trademark clearance.
It is the responsibility of a trademark owner to clear a trademark before adopting a mark. The liabilities faced by a trademark owner who fails to do so before registering a mark can be costly: from losing a mark you’ve worked hard to build to costly trademark litigation.
Davey also discusses the process of trademark clearance using a comprehensive trademark search report and the need for an attorney’s opinion letter.
