What are trademark disputes?

Trademark disputes are all types of quarrels whether taking place at court, at the trademark office or privately between a trademark owner and another party. Trademark disputes may relate to who the rightful successor of a trademark is (whether because of inheritance or otherwise), who rightful economic beneficiary of a trademark is or whether use of a certain mark constitutes an infringement or not. Trademark disputes may either be resolved at the trademark office, at court or through out of court settlements.
