What is a Trademark Violation Letter?

When you've done a lot of work to build your brand, a Trademark Violation Letter is a great way to make sure others don't ride on your coattails. Whether you're ready to formally tell someone to stop, or you're getting ready to meet with an attorney about trademark infringement, issuing a Trademark Violation Letter creates a record that can help you down the road. 
A trademark violation can happen when someone identifies their business or product with a name that's confusingly close yours. Whether infringement is intentional or not, a Trademark Violation Letter can help you protect the products and positioning you've developed. The letter asserts your claim to the trademark, and lets others know they're infringing on your rights. It asks them to stop and gives them both a timeline, and a sense of the consequences if they continue to use your mark. The letter is the first step in the process of enforcing your rights. If the other company continues to violate your rights to the trademark, you can bring a stop the improper use.

When to use a Trademark Violation Letter:

  • You want to demand that another party stop using a trademark that is identical or confusingly similar to your trademark.
  • You want to prepare for a meeting with a trademark attorney to discuss a possible infringement of trademark rights.
