What is Trademark Infringement?

Let us help you with trademark infringement cases in Tampa, Miami & Orlando, FL

Trademark Infringement by legal definition is the unauthorized production and use of an image or legal trademark or service mark (or a similar mark) on competing or related goods and services. The legal success of a lawsuit to stop the infringement is gained on whether the defendants use causes a reasonable likelihood of confusion in the average consumers.

Intellectual property (IP) includes myriad creations of the mind, including inventions, literary and artistic works, and logos, just to name a few. The law protects owners of trademarks, copyrights, and patents, along with all other creative works, aiming to create an environment where innovation can grow and be protected.

For example, Billy started a bakery business and his slogan is "We Bake Them, You Take Them". Billy then registered his slogan and business protected trademark, with the courts giving him exclusive rights to use the slogan in all of his advertising and sale of his goods and services. By Billy taking this proactive step, if another bakery business opens and uses the same or similar confusing slogan on television or in print ads, Billy can seek legal recourse and file a lawsuit for trademark infringement protection.
