What is trademark infringements?23-05-10
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 approval was within the scope of the license). Infringement may occur when one party, the "infringer", uses a trademark that is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark owned by another party, concerning products or services which are identical or akin 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, if there are any infringements, it is easy to claim the right of ownership of the mark and stop the infringers. Lawsuits might arise from an infringement case 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.
