Trademarks are your company's signature, and like a personal signature, they depend upon the trust and good faith people place in them. Your trademark is only as valuable as the worth and trust your customers place in your company and the products sold under the mark. Hence, trademark infringement can be very harmful and detrimental to your company and products in that users of a misappropriated mark can often damage and destroy the good faith you have worked to build up in the mark. For this reason, perhaps no intellectual property infringment is as damaging as trademark infringement; not only does the infringer steal profits to which you are rightfully entitled, he or she can also decrease the value of the trademark and your ability to make profits using it. There are generally two kinds of trademark litigation that you may pursue to protect your mark: civil actions for trademark infringement and opposition actions to prevent the issuance of an infringing mark.
Trademark Infringement: The majority of trademark litigation centers around trademark infringement suits when you discover that someone has been illegally using your mark. Trademark infringement suits can be very complex and lengthy; however, there are several remedies available to the infringed upon party, including:
Trademark Opposition: Alternatively, trademark litigation may involve the bringing of an opposition to a pending trademark before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (TTAB). Opposition actions involve the attempt to prevent a trademark from being registered that would infringe upon an existing registered trademark and/or would cause confusion to the public. Such actions can be extremely advantageous in that they can prevent the infringement of a mark altogether. However, because the TTAB has different processes than federal courts, such actions require experienced and knowledgeable attorneys able to understand the various details at issue and to provide the strong representation needed.
The Wilson Legal Group understands the detrimental effects trademark infringement can have and is passionate about defending and protecting you and your company. Our attorneys have experience protecting numerous clients' trademarks, have successfully taken infringement cases to trial, and have prevented infringements from occurring through oppositions before the TTAB.
