Trademarkia announced today the launch of new features that will enable users to register trademarks in more than 50 countries including the US., European Union, Japan, China, India and Korea. Prior to Trademarkia’s international launch, businesses had to spend thousands of dollars locating and hiring attorneys around the world to prepare and file their trademarks. Businesses worldwide now have a unique way to search for trademarks and register their brands through a cutting-edge service called Trademarkia (www.trademarkia.com).
Trademarkia began as a visual search engine for more than 6 million U.S. trademarks filed since the year 1870. It also features user-friendly, automated trademark filing and trademark management services. Since its launch at the TechCrunch50 conference, the Silicon Valley based company has experienced explosive growth and is on track to become the largest trademark filer in the world in its first year of operation.
“The online self-service legal environment is changing rapidly with an emphasis on faster service and internationalizing of do it yourself legal filing. Trademarkia is leading the way by enabling customers to protect their brands easily, quickly and at a low-cost in multiple countries simultaneously,” said Raj Abhyanker, Attorney and CEO and Founder of Trademarkia.
By exposing historical and new trademark information in real-time, Trademarkia has also become a leading indicator of brand news around the world. Trademarkia was first to release little-known information about new products such as the Google Nexus One, in addition to confirming rumors surrounding iSlate as the name of an upcoming Apple Tablet product. Furthermore, scores of Wikipedia pages have been improved in the past few months with information found only in the Trademarkia database for brands like McDonalds, Gmail, Black & Decker, Nike Swoosh, Coca-Cola, and even the most searched Wikipedia page “Wiki”.
The Mountain View, California based company was the brain child of a law firm specializing in intellectual property law called Raj Abhyanker LLP. Recognizing that a robust trademark search and filing tool was not freely available on the United States Patent & Trademark Office website, (www.uspto.gov) the law firm decided to invest in building Trademarkia. Trademarkia presents trademark information in an appealing visual grid rather than in text form as on the USPTO website, and has integrated its filing feature to facilitate ease of use.
Now, with the addition of the international filing feature, this breakthrough company has again proven that it is possible to build a valuable free search product and a profitable commerce engine without relying on advertising revenue.
Trademarkia is the largest, most accurate and free global search engine for registered trademarks on the Internet, providing up to the minute contextual information about current use of brand names for trademarks filed since the year 1870. The integration of services and content enables existing brands to monitor marks and new brands to design and register new marks or select from among expired marks.
