IP Watch Program

On a courtesy basis, we provide this program for intellectual property right holder based outside the Philippines. This program aims to determine the presence of infringing products in the market and includes obtaining of samples for examination by the IP owner. We may also conduct searches with the Intellectual Property Philippines to determine possible fraudulent attempts to register the trademark.

Under the program, once an establishment is found dealing in counterfeit products, the IP owner will be notified and asked if it wishes to proceed with further investigations to trace the manufacturing or importing sources of the product. Prior to availing of our free IP Watchsm services, IP2 Manila requests from the IP owner evidence of its IP right, such as a trademark registration, a sample of its product, a general description, brochures, manuals and/or catalogues.
