Trademark Infringement: Is Your Business At Risk?

Trademark infringement is more common than you think. How common, you ask? Well, it’s estimated that about 50% of businesses experience trademark infringement, either by being infringed upon or by committing infringement themselves. That’s a pretty high number… and it can also be a very costly lawsuit. 

A recent Supreme Court ruling has changed the game for trademark lawsuits, making it more important than ever to get your trademarks in line (learn more about that important ruling here!

So today we’ll get to the heart of your infringement questions in a way that allows you to take a deep breath… and then take action to safeguard your business.

In this episode, we’ll cover: 

  • What exactly constitutes trademark infringement

  • The important considerations you must make if you suspect that you’re infringing on a trademark, or if someone is infringing on yours. 

  • Trademark cancellations – how ‘being first’ can help in your trademark fight. 

  • Why an official trademark search is imperative to ensuring that you know where you stand with your trademark. 

  • Rebranding your business after infringement
