FAQ - Frequently asked questions on the subject of trade mark registration

A similarity search goes much further than a pure identity search. In a similarity search, we commission an external IP search service to create a very extensive trade mark search supported by a computer algorithm. We usually receive several hundred search hits, which we subsequently analyse manually.

If you order a similarity search for a German national trade mark from us separately, you pay a flat rate of €500 net. This already includes the costs incurred by us for the external commissioning of the IP search service.

A similarity search gives you much greater certainty than is possible with an identity search. With an identity search, you always run the risk of overlooking similar trade marks that are likely to be confused with your sign. This increases the risk of costly trade mark conflicts.
