Thomson Reuters to Acquire MarkMonitor

The Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters signed a definitive agreement to acquire MarkMonitor, a global leader in online brand protection, subject to regulatory approval. Together, Thomson Reuters and MarkMonitor will transform brand protection to help companies create, manage, protect their revenue and reputations around the world.

MarkMonitor will strengthen the expanding Intellectual Property Solutions from Thomson Reuters with its trusted brand offerings, including brand creation, protection and licensing management. These are natural extensions of the trademark search and watch services Thomson Reuters already provides.
