Imagine that you have spent the last ten years developing your business and its stellar reputation. After investing in your branding, logos, slogans, and related registered trademarks, what is the benefit of having spent your time and money developing consumer goodwill if you do not enforce your business-identifying intellectual property?
Under trademark law, in cases involving unauthorized use of a counterfeit trademark or cyber-piracy (for example), statutory damages may be awarded in a range from $1000.00 for innocent trademark infringement to $2,000,000.00 for willful trademark infringement. Alternatively, you could seek actual damages that could even exceed the above amounts, depending on the circumstances.
Our attorneys can help you analyze your case and advise you accordingly, as every situation is different and requires independent consideration.
Therefore, if you discover that a business is profiting from the use of your trademark (in a similar business), or if you believe your trademark rights have been violated in any way, feel free to contact The Iwashko Law Firm for a consultation regarding steps you can take to seek justice and rectify any damages you may have experienced.
