NAME-IT

NAME-IT develops highly creative, trademarkable names – names you can market and build upon without threat of infringement. Your new trade name will become the positive focal point of your new enterprise.

  • The naming of your product, business or slogan could be one of the most important decisions you will make. A name’s originality and legal availability will become a real asset value of its own, as it becomes marketed and gains market acceptance.
  • The name you choose will become the focal point of all the benefits and features that relate to your product or business. Customers will be able to find and refer others to it in the future.
  • Established products or businesses realize the value of customer good will. A well chosen name will provide an extra marketing advantage, one that may mean the difference between failure and success.
  • As an extra bonus to TradeMark Express clients, any search fees that lead to legally blocked names will be credited towards any new NAME-IT creative naming project.
  • See NAME-IT web site for more information and a request for a naming bid.

Wayback Machine

For Intellectual property purposes TradeMark Express recommends using the Wayback Machine’s DocuComp feature to compare competing web sites and whether trade names, slogans or logo designs may have been previously used.

TheWayback Machine’s handy DocuComp tool allows a dependable look at what someone’s true common law rights may be, so that they may be respected. Since dates of first use may be a major point of contention, this tool furnishes evidence for both parties. All that you need is the competitor’s domain name to begin your free research.

Since 1996, the Internet Archive has a compiled digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Similar to a library, it provides free access to researchers, historians, scholars, and the general public.

The Internet Archive, working with Alexa Internet, has created the Wayback Machine. The Wayback Machine makes it possible to surf more than 10 billion pages stored in the Internet Archive’s web archive, dating back to 1996.

DocuComp

What is DocuComp?

DocuComp is a sophisticated technology that compares inserted, deleted, replaced and moved text and content in Web pages.

What must I know in order to use DocuComp in theWayBack Machine?

You need to know the basic functions of the Wayback Machine. Begin by typing in a URL to search for the Wayback Machine and hit the ‘Take Me Back’ button. Once you’ve found your choices on the results page, click the ‘Compare Archive Pages’ button in the upper right hand corner of the page. The reloaded page will have a series of check boxes before each page date. Check any two dates and select the ‘Compare two dates’ button in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. The system is designed to automatically generate results for any URLs indexed by the Wayback Machine.

What Archive Pages are comparable?

You can compare any two pages from the Archive’s library, dating from 1996 to the present. There are approximately 10 billion pages!

Why should I compare results of past Web pages?

Access to the Archive’s Collections is provided at no cost to you and is granted for scholarship and research purposes only. The DocuComp feature is intended to provide interesting insight into how content on pages in every field – from the government to entertainment to business sites – changes over time.

Some images are missing in my comparison?

In certain cases, images within the Web pages are not available. Not all images are archived or are retrievable from the original site. If they no longer exist on the original site, then the images will not be available and will not be displayed within the archived pages.

Certain links or actions are not working in the comparison results?

Links to other pages may not be available if those pages (or links) no longer exist and are not in the archive library. Also, javascript enabled links and actions are disabled in the comparison results to prevent errant scripts from being run.
