Can a trademark watch service guarantee that my trademark will not be infringed?

No, a trademark watch service cannot guarantee that your trademark will not be infringed. However, it provides a proactive approach to monitoring potential infringement and helps you stay informed so you can take action if necessary. It will also help prevent the loss of your trademark rights in the event an infringer uses your mark without your knowledge. In such situations, your recourse against an infringer may be reduced significantly if they argue that you permitted the infringment by failing to police your mark.
