Someone copying your brand on app stores might be a form of trademark infringement. Here are steps you can take to address the situation:

  • Consider reaching out to the infringing party.
  • Report the trademark infringement to the app store(s) where the copied app is available. Most app stores have mechanisms for reporting intellectual property violations.
  • If informal communication doesn't resolve the issue, consider sending a formal cease and desist letter.
  • If the offending party doesn't comply with the letter, you can choose to take legal action.

If you are not sure how to proceed and if you have exhausted the easy options, consider reaching out to a legal professional.
