Registration is just the first (although very important) step in protecting your trademarks. Once a trademark is registered, trademark owners are responsible for enforcing their trademark rights, including the monitoring of others' use of trademarks that are confusingly similar to their own.
Occasionally, the United States Patent and Trademark Office may approve a trademark that you believe is confusingly similar to your own trademark. Actively monitoring the trademark database gives you an opportunity to dispute the registration of that trademark with an opposition proceeding.
