Trademark Infringement

hammer

Owning a registered trademark gives you legal rights that protect your brand, business name or logo.  If anybody uses your trademark without your consent you can bring legal proceedings against them.  BATTLE have advised many customers about how to attack or defend against trademark infringement.

In simple terms, trademark infringement occurs if somebody uses a sign, logo, brand or business name that is similar or identical to a current trademark.  Generally infringement can occur if the public is likely to be confused (including a likelihood of association) between the unregistered sign, logo, brand or business name and the registered trademark.

Specifically, trademark infringement can occur:

  • When a similar logo, brand or business name is put on goods or packaging.
  • When a person offers goods similar to those that are trademarked for sale, or stocks them with a view to offering or supplying services under the similar brand.
  • When a similar logo, brand or business name is used on official business papers or in advertising.
