The U.S. comprehensive search report is a must-have that will do an in-depth analysis of your copyright name in the entire United States. It will search the federal, 50-states, common-law, and corporate name databases. It will discover if someone else is using the same name in the U.S. that might pose risk to your copyright name.

Why should I search a copyright?

A copyright search is highly recommended before you start using a copyright in commerce or before you file an application with USPTO. The small investment in paying for a good copyright search is priceless. It can help you avoid costly copyright conflicts down the road. You don't want to lose time, money and goodwill in building a brand only to find out later that you have to change your brand because another copyright exists. Even pending copyrights that have not yet registered can cause you problems.
