Trademark Infringement

Posted by Michael Shimokaji | Apr 22, 2014 | 0 Comments

Question: If someone is using my brand name that I trademarked but isn't confusing to my product is there still a cause for infringement?

I am going to be selling a product and there is a rapper using my brand name as well as people on social networking sites.

Answer: The laws of trademark infringement are intended to prevent confusion. If there is none between the two trademarks, then there is no infringement.
