LITIGATION RISK IN YOUR WATCHES AND SEARCHES
Together, Corsearch and Darts-ip combine two previously time-consuming work processes into a single comprehensive analysis.
To evaluate risk, we automate Darts-ip’s proprietary case law searches directly into each trademark record in the Corsearch watch notice and search results. Accordingly, Corsearch and Darts-ip have created new efficiencies for the trademark practice. This workflow enhancement is available at no additional costs for subscribers of both platforms.

The Trademark Watch Workflow
The Search Results Workflow
“Some days, I have a (too large) number of watches to go through. Darts-ip’s datapoints are helping me to be quicker and more accurate in my selection process. Besides, knowing what the owner of the newly found mark has been involved in, helps me to sharpen my strategy”

4 DATA POINTS
Litigation data included in your watches covers 4 points.
1. Goods and Services Similarity
Which goods and services are deemed to be similar in case law?
Similar goods and services are automatically highlighted in your search or watch. Therefore, practitioners will not have to review the entire list of goods and services for each cited mark.
2. Found Mark Case Law Check
How often has a newly found mark been subject to litigation?
The integrated tool verifies whether the newly found trademark has already been involved in a dispute and whether the dispute was from the same owner.
3. Owner Litigiousness
How experienced is the owner? How often has the owner been party in cases? How often as defendant or as plaintiff?
Owners of trade marks who are experienced prosecutors and litigators are highlighted, as Darts-ip provides the number of disputes where the owner specifically was a plaintiff or a defendant.
4. Verbal Comparison of Marks
To help you assess the risk of confusion between the mark searched or watched and the cited mark, we give you examples of cases where trade marks with similar verbal structures have been compared.
Darts-ip displays cases where the most similar trade mark pairs are determined by trade mark verbal comparison and what the outcomes have been.
“Having the ability to see relevant litigation information at an early stage in a watch can be incredibly valuable and can influence how a client will deal with a citation from the moment it comes in.”

1. What solutions are Corsearch and Darts IP bringing to the market?
Darts-ip now brings case law information directly inside the Corsearch platform. Users of both services will benefit from a factual risk assessment based on case law data directly into their searches or watches.
2. Is Corsearch now providing Case Law data?
No. The case law data available in Corsearch is coming from Darts-ip.
3. If my subscription to Darts-ip is for the European Union and my Corsearch searches and or watches are WorldWide, what do I get as info?
If your current Darts-ip subscription does not allow you to see cases outside of Europe but if Corsearch performs your searches and or your watches outside of Europe, Darts-ip will upgrade your account access for a 6-month period. You will then decide if you want to continue to have access to case outside of Europe or not.
4. What if I am already a Corsearch and Darts-ip customer?
You will automatically get contextual case law data in your Corsearch account. Every report or notice will now have five data-points generated from Darts-ip’s structured trademark case law database to allow you to assess litigation risk directly from the platform.
5. Can I get more information on what Corsearch and Darts-ip are developing?
Yes, we can provide you with a broad set of material. Please contact your Corsearch or Darts-ip account manager for more information.
6. Is there any information available on pricing?
To use this new functionality, you simply must be a subscriber to both Corsearch Watching and to Darts-ip’s Trademark database. We are not charging any additional costs on clients.
