The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has launched an online toolkit to help individuals with basic information concerning trademarks. The website is located here.
The Trademark Toolkit includes a link to:
- General information about trademarks;
- How to respond to a Cease and Desist letter;
- What to do if an infringement lawsuit has been filed;
- Information about trademark infringement; and
- Resources and glossary.
It is helpful for our clients to be as informed as possible before we provide specific legal advice for the facts of the matter. The information in the Trademark Toolkit does provide very helpful trademark information but because each situation tends to be unique, we welcome your questions about your specific situation.
