Turkish Trademark Search

One of the most important steps in the trademark registration procedure is to conduct an extensive trademark search in order to identify potential conflicts with existing trademarks and as a confirmation that your trademark is almost available for registration.

That’s why it is recommended as the first step in determining whether your trademark is available for use. Alternatively, you may conduct it by officially requesting from the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office.

Here, you may search for registered trademarks as well as published trademark applications in Turkey. A good trademark search that identifies potential conflicts includes existing trademarks in the Turkish market, company name registers, and pending trademark applications & registrations before the Turkish Patent and Trademark Office. When analyzing a trademark search report, it is important to take into consideration a number of factors to determine whether your mark is infringing on or likely to be confused with another trademark; such as similarity, company names, company services, classification, and degree of confusion likely to be exercised by the purchasers.

It is important to understand that a trademark search cannot provide you with a definitive “answer” as to whether or not your proposed trademark is available for use and registration. It does, however, arm you with information regarding potential risks associated with the mark which affect your decision in the use and registration of your mark, which, in turn, leads you to invest money for alternatives to save time.

It is also important to note that a trademark used or registered earlier in Turkey may also pose an obstacle to registration. The adoption of a trademark confusingly similar to a trademark currently in use by others may give rise to a claim for infringement and litigation.

We also counsel our clients on the proper use and protection of trademarks and create individualized trademark use guidelines for clients to help them maximize the strength of their marks. Our trademark attorneys routinely speak at industry events and conduct in-house seminars to educate our clients on the various issues involved in creating and protecting a valuable brand.
