A trademark is a way of identifying a unique product or service. It’s a form of brand protection which distinguishes between your products or services and those belonging to your competitors. A trade mark is not just ‘a logo’. It can be a letter, number, word, phrase, sound, smell, shape, logo,
picture, movement, aspect of packaging, or a combination of these.

Every successful European patent application enters the Validation phase. EP Validation is the process of converting a single granted European Patent Application into a national patent in one or more of the 44 European Patent Organisation member, extension and validation states.

The validation process typically involves high quality, technically-qualified translation of all or part of the patent, the payment of fees and the filing of documents within a certain timeframe – usually three months from the European Grant Date. The European Patent Convention means that the national patents cannot be rejected and will be considered to have been in force from the European Grant Date, so long as all requirements and deadlines are met, and any annuity (renewal) requirements have been satisfied.

Already being one of the most expensive phases in the lifetime of a patent, it is often made more costly and complicated without need. We can make it simple for you. We offer you a clear, cost-effective and personal service that works seamlessly.

 

As patents, trademarks and designs are filed and mature during their IPR lifecycle their maintenance or renewals must be paid into country or regional Patent & Trademark Offices (PTOs) depending on the country rule and global coverage that a client selects. IPR renewal payments are required in some countries when they are at application stage (e.g. European EP applications), whilst other IPR only requires renewal payments after grant (e.g. issued US patents) and the fees are sometimes based on the number of granted claims (e.g. Japanese granted patents). The way these IPR renewal fees change over time due to factors that include official fees, foreign exchange fluctuations, claims granted and the maturity of these IPRs. BETA IP’s expert service team keeps completely up-to-date on all of these factors, country formalities and changes to reflect live prices in our renewals solutions and are available to answer any renewals questions at any time.

 We provide other services about IP that include but not limited to the list below:

    •  IP Search and Clearance: Whether it be investigations into validity searches, freedom to operate
      searches, patentability searches (eg, novelty searches), due diligence searches, landscaping searches, trade mark searches (including EU wide
      trade mark search strategy packages), design searches or competitor monitoring, being a full service intellectual property law firm means that from the moment the scope of the search is defined with you our experts are engaged and guiding the process. 
    • IP Recordals:  It is very important to keep IP registries up-to-date, otherwise, there arise some unexpected conflicting and delaying issues in using or enforcing your IP rights. Documentation and formalities for recording any changes differ from country to country and require special attention to details.
    • Domain Names: Domain names have become an integral part of IP rights and they should not be disregarded when developing branding strategy. Therefore, in addition to registering your brands as trademark and designs, you should also consider securing a domain name for your brand to prevent possible infringements, cyber-squatting and counterfeits.
