CEO & Legal Mind

If you monitor your trademark and discover someone copying your brand, your options might include the following:

  • Leveraging the opposition window - if the offender is an identical or similar trademark filed in a country where you hold a trademark already
  • Submitting a platform takedown request - this is possible on social media, app stores and some online marketplaces
  • Initiate a domain dispute resolution process
  • Sending a cease and desist letter
  • If the infringing party does not comply with the cease and desist letter, you may choose to take further legal action

If you are using a trademark monitoring service, you can inquire whether your provider offers any resolution methods.
