Smith explained that “Trademarkia has built the first and largest library of 5.7 million logos, names, and slogans anywhere on the Internet by leveraging public information. [Rees Morrison: The website says that it covers all US trademarks filed since 1870.] People who are looking to create a new business name, slogan, or logo now have a unique new way to get creative ideas and inspiration for new marks. Trademarkia has also created a unique way to automate and simplify state and federal trademark registrations and monitoring.”
The site looks impressive, although I did not poke around much or verify Smith’s claims. In-house trademark counsel might find it useful (See my post of Aug. 19, 2009: trademarks with 33 references.).
