When purchasing rights to copyright-protected works, it is important to research the chain of title for the work at issue. AccuMark® Copyright Search Reports include a summary of searchable information in an easy-to-read format that helps establish chain of title, which is often required by E&O insurance carriers and distributors.
Among the areas we research or otherwise utilize are major private and state/federal government intellectual property databases worldwide, major entertainment and other news publications, company directories, domain registrations, user-generated content, various proprietary databases, and the top search engines.
The main value of an AccuMark® Copyright Search Report is in its precision, comprehensive coverage, and reliability. However, AccuMark® also recognizes the importance of cost and turnaround time. With a pricing scale that is lower than most major providers of the same or similar services, and with a two business day turnaround time, an AccuMark® Copyright Report is a better value in every respect. While other major providers charge hundreds of dollars extra for expedited service, our standard fast service is provided at no extra charge.
AccuMark® copyright search results and reports are comprehensive without being superfluous. Unlike other providers, who often are not supervised by recognized copyright lawyers, we rely on the expertise of veteran US and UK copyright attorneys who founded AccuMark®, devised the AccuMark® reports, and have trained the AccuMark® legal professionals who conduct the searches and prepare the reports. Also, unlike some other providers, we do not pad our reports with information from irrelevant searches in obscure and unessential fields.
