What is trademark infringements?

Trademark infringement is a violation of the exclusive rights attached to a trademark without the authorization of the trademark owner or any licensees (provided that such authorization was within the scope of the license). Infringement may occur when one party, the "infringer", uses a trademark which is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark owned by another party, in relation to products or services which are identical or similar to the products or services which the registration covers. To ensure that your mark is not infringed, you need to register your trademark for protection, in that way even if there are any infringements it is easily to claim the right of ownership of the mark and stop the infringers. Lawsuits might arise from infringements cases, if the infringer does not cease to unlawfully use a trademark, the original owner of the trademark has the right to sue the infringer for damages.
