Trademark Infringement


Trademark Infringement

If a younger trademark is identical to or can be confused with a registered trademark, injunction and damages can be claimed.

Defence against Alleged Trademark Infringement

Defence against alleged trademark infringement is possible by arguing that the trademarks cannot be confused for the products and services in question, the older trademark has not been used appropriately and the trademark is devoid of any distinctive character. Further, exhaustion can be claimed if the goods have been brought into market within the European Union.
