Negative-Check Report

When producing a television or film project, it is important to cover all possible bases when it comes to potential litigation. One of those bases is ensuring that the names of fictional characters in the production is less likely to be confused with real-life people. AccuMark® Negative Check Reports are an important step in reducing the chances of claims or possible legal action on that front.

The best value of an AccuMark® Negative-Check Report is in its precision, comprehensive coverage, and reliability. However, in a time of increasingly tight production budgets and schedules, AccuMark® also is the industry leader in recognizing that cost and turnaround time are important too. With a competitive pricing scale and with our overnight turnaround time, an AccuMark® Negative-Check Report is a better value in every respect. For another example, while other major providers charge hundreds of dollars extra for "24-hour" service, our overnight service is provided at no extra charge.

AccuMark® search results and reports are comprehensive without being superfluous. Unlike other providers, who are not supervised by recognized trademark, copyright or media lawyers, we rely on the expertise of veteran intellectual property and media law attorneys at SmithDehn LLP, one of the world's leading media and entertainment law firms. With offices in Washington D.C., Los Angeles, New York, and the expert lawyers at SmithDehn represent hundreds of film and television companies, studios, and distributors, and they work regularly with all major media insurance carriers. Attorneys at SmithDehn have 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. Instead, our intentions, work, and results are based exclusively on the needs of clients.

Additionally, we are able to tailor our reports to meet our clients' needs. For example, with specific reports, we can perform searches within limited geographic regions, bringing down the cost of the report while at the same time eliminating information that is useless to the client.
