The UK Intellectual Property Office (which deals with UK Trade Mark and Patent applications and licenses) has warned that numerous businesses seeking to protect their Trade Marks and Patents have been and are being targeted in what we call The Trade Mark Scam (this scam is operated around the Globe).



About the Trade Mark Scams


UK Trade Marks and Patent applications are made public.

Having access to a list of Trade Mark and Patent holders provides a database of potential victims to unscrupulous scam artists who basically notify the Trade Mark holder or Patent holder that their Patent or Trade Mark is due for renewal and invoice for the service. It should be noted that the UK Trade Marks must be renewed on the 10th anniversary of the filing date. At the time of writing (May 3rd 2014) the cost of renewal is 200 for one class of goods or services and 50 for each additional class.
