What Our Customers Are Saying

Trademark BOB is not like any other trademark search tool out there. A skeptic at first, I tried BOB for a few searches and it quickly spotted issues that would be problematic in getting registered with the trademark office. So, I highly recommend giving BOB a try!

BOB is an important part of our team. We save time and money using BOB, which allows our companies to get new products to the market faster.

John Miller

BOB is a very useful and easy-to-use trademark search tool. I will continue to use BOB for my firm’s branding projects.

Scott Robertson

Managing Partner of Robertson+Partners

BOB enables me to review a long list of potential names in a cost-effective manner. By using BOB as a trademark screening tool, I have confidence that my short list of presented names will pass legal scrutiny when it is ultimately reviewed by the client's trademark lawyers.

*Basing a Risk Level on only the Similarity of the Marks and overlapping International Class Numbers results in an overly conservative and even inaccurate risk assessment
**Paying for International Searches when a mark is unavailable in the U.S. is a waste of money. The better strategy is to search the U.S first then search names available in the U.S. in foreign countries.
