To monitor business registers for emerging companies that could potentially pose infringement to your brand, first, identify relevant registers in your countries of interest. Many countries have online databases where you can search for registered businesses. These databases often allow you to search by name, making it easier to identify any businesses that may be using your trademark.

However, this practice can be quite time-consuming since you have to perform it regularly. If you are monitoring more than one register, you'll have to multiply the amount of effort. Therefore, many business owners opt for a trademark monitoring solution instead. These solutions can check business registers and other relevant channels and notify you of any suspicious activity.
