A Trademark infringement search occurs when another company begins using for commercial purposes a trademark without the trademark owner’s consent or license. ‘Using for commercial purposes’ here would include a wide range of activities including selling your own goods and services under a mark which is deceptively similar to a registered trademark, using registered mark to sell your own goods and services without trademark owner’s consent, unauthorized use of trademark beyond the scope of registration, etc. Basically, Infringement of mark covers dishonest and malafide use of a trademark.
Why you needs a Trademark Infringement Search?
A Trademark Infringement search is done to map out and instances of your trademark being used by a third party without your consent or license. If the trademark is used without the trademark owner’s consent or knowledge, the trademark owner has the right to take action against the person or company concerned. This gives the holder exclusive rights to their mark and allows them to use and/or license its trademark. The output of Trademark Infringement Search comes in the form of Evidence Of Use (EOU) charts, which map potentially infringing marks.
