Have you ever wanted to check if there's a registered trademark in India for a domain name you're interested in? To carry out an online search of India's trademark records, you currently have to pay a fee of Rs. 400 per search. The search lasts 15 minutes. Update: found a free but limited online search of India's trademark register. Update #2: this service is no longer free. You pay US$5 for 5 searches. I'm surprised TMR India charges you for such information. A lot of countries allow you to access such information for free, eg: UK Intellectual Property Office, USPTO, Canadian Trade-marks Database. Has anyone actually searched the register at TMR India before? I think charging for this information means less domainers will check to see if a particular domain is infringing on a registered trademark. So one day we might get a nasty surprise and find out that we've unintentionally been infringing on a trademark…. Do you think it's important that we access such information, or is there enough information from other sources to determine if we have a potential trademark problem?
