Trademark Litigation Attorney
Trademarks are used to identify and brand a product or service and differentiate them from other products and services. If you operate a business and use a unique identifier such as a photo, logo, or catch-phrase, you should protect it by registering it as an official business trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
What is a Trademark?
Words, logos, slogans, pictures, trade dress such as a unique product shape are all considered trademarks.

The Trademark Litigation Process
The trademark litigation process is similar to the copyright litigation process. It all starts with a letter outlining perceived trademark infringement, along with a request to stop using the mark in question. The defendant may respond by removing the mark from their website, blog, and other marketing materials or may choose to ignore the request or file a motion with the court to dismiss the complaint.
Proving trademark infringement is up to the person who filing the initial complaint.
Whether you file a complaint or receive a letter requesting you to stop using a particular mark, you need to consult an experienced attorney who specializes in trademark and copyright infringement.
