Product Details

Choose from two report formats: The U.S. Full Availability Search gives you a choice of two report formats, plus a new Interactive Inbox Report on SAEGIS™ that makes your search report easier to work with.
  • By Source: Citations are arranged according to the data source. Within each data source, the citations are assembled according to our proprietary grouping system.
  • By Group: Citations are organized into five groups, according to their similarity to the mark being searched, using our proprietary grouping system. Each group contains similar citations across multiple data sources (USPTO, State, etc).

Proprietary grouping system: Our proprietary grouping system that places similar marks together in five groups, gives you the flexibility to view your search report in the way that's best for you.

Report Summary: We provide a summary of all cited marks at the front of your research report, including a Group One summary to help you quickly identify those marks which are the most similar to the mark searched.

Interactive Inbox Report on SAEGIS™: Quickly and easily export citations for use in your documents, saving you time! Build a custom report with those citations you select. Sort citations by owner, class and status, or switch views between "By Group" and "By Source".
