File Description [top]

The TRADEMARKSCAN® - United Kingdom (File 126) database is produced by Thomson CompuMark. The database principally serves as a preliminary trademark screening tool for checking on the availability of new product and service names.

Like other TRADEMARKSCAN files, TRADEMARKSCAN - United Kingdom should not be used as the sole basis for clearing a new name or for filing a trademark application. If a trademark is not found in the databases, it does not necessarily mean that the trademark is available for use. Registration does, however, confer the exclusive right to the use of a trademark and offers a greater degree of protection from infringement.

TRADEMARKSCAN - United Kingdom features full records that contain the trademark, application and registration numbers, international and national class(es), status, goods/services, current owner, dates, and other pertinent information. Trademarks can be searched as phrases (ET=), as whole words or word beginnings in the Basic Index, or as word fragments or word endings in the rotated index (TR=). Trademark design/logo images can be located by restricting a search with RT=IMAGE. Color images are provided when available. Other information about the mark such as e.g., Design Type (DT=), Lining/Color Claims (PH=), Design Phrase (PH=), Notes (NT=), and Design Codes (VC=) are also included.

TRADEMARKSCAN - United Kingdom can be searched individually or in conjunction with other trademark file(s). Search and display fields have been standardized as much as possible for use in cross-file searching. The OneSearch category, TMKS, covers all trademark databases. The EUROTMKS category covers the International Register, Community Trademarks, and the European, Scandinavian, and Central European trademark databases.

1 Use the Basic Index to search complete words, compound words, or word beginnings, e.g., S KEY?. Use the rotated index TR= to search word fragments, or word endings, e.g., TR=MAIL?. Since punctuation is stripped for trademark searching, use the AND operator instead of the (W) operator for the most comprehensive retrieval. Search compound words as the whole word and as its parts, e.g., S KEYMAIL? OR (KEY AND MAIL?).

2 Since trademarks are not cross-referenced, for the most comprehensive retrieval, alternative spellings should be SELECTed either in the Basic Index, e.g., SELECT HARBOR OR HARBOUR OR HAVRE or in the Rotated Trademark index, e.g., SELECT TR=(HARBOR? OR HARBOUR? OR HAVRE?).

3 Named Company [CO=] includes Owner (ON= and OW=), Agent/Correspondent (LR=), and Registered User (RU=) (when present).

4 In a REPORT which includes date fields, NA will appear when the requested date information is not available. Trademark and owner names longer than 32 characters are truncated in REPORT displays.

5 Historical Information is not searchable but does include additional information regarding status changes pertaining to the trademark

6 The Notes field [NT=] contains miscellaneous action information pertaining to the trademark such as disclaimers, series marks, consent notices, etc.

7 Records containing trademark images can be located by including RT=IMAGE in the search. Images display in Formats 15 and 19 when searches are conducted using DialogLink 5, Dialog Classic on the Web, or DialogWeb. Depending on the trademark, images may be in color or black and white.

8 National Class (NC=) pertains to the pre-1938 UK Classification. Older records are assigned international and national classes.

9 When searching word fragments in the Rotated Trademark index (TR=), use the @ character to indicate the end of a word, e.g., TR=MAIL@. To retrieve an embedded fragment, use the question mark, e.g., S TR=AIL?. Multiple TR= fragments can be combined with AND for the most comprehensive retrieval.

10 If unsure whether a number is is a registration number (RN=) or an application number (SN=), search both fields, e.g., S RN,SN=123456.

11 Registered User (RU=) includes information about organizations that have a licensing agreement with the trademark owner. The type of license, licensee name, number and goods can be searched, if available.

12 Does not display in record.
