Carlton Fields TMap: Trademark Portfolio Tracker

Managing an international trademark portfolio is complex. Global companies may have hundreds of trademarks, which need to be registered, renewed, monitored, protected, and enforced. International trademarks add an array of complexity due to varying requirements, translations into new languages, differing local laws, and counterfeiting policies.

Carlton Fields has developed an interactive trademark portfolio tracker for clients to quickly view all of their pending and active trademark registrations worldwide. Each filing is marked on the map with a pin icon; clients can view information on those filings by clicking on the pin. 

Contact your Carlton Fields trademark attorney to set up your custom TMap.

MAP OVERVIEW

Carlton Fields TMap solution enables clients to search and view trademark registrations by specific brands, status (e.g. pending versus registered), and classes (the goods covered by the filing). Clients also can do a full text search for specific types of goods (e.g. search for socks). If a country has one or more trademark filings, a pin will display in that country. To get more information on those filings, click on the pin and use the left and right arrows to scroll through the filings.
