BEING A VICTIM OF TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT 

Victims of trademark infringement  can face an uphill battle when protecting an established or existing mark from a newcomer that is misappropriating the goodwill, business reputation, commercial strength, or other intangible assets of an established business. Every day, small businesses, individuals, entertainers, and others are, sometimes unknowingly, the victims of trademark infringement.  Many times, the perpetrator has registered the mark without conducting the sufficient searches to identify whether existing marks bar the registration. The U.S. Patent & Trademark Office issues office actions that sometimes identify competing or already existing marks, but other times, can simply miss. Further, trademark registration rightsholders sometimes may not be receiving alerts or a trademark monitoring service to notify them as to whether a competing mark has been registered.  Often times, the solution in these case is to bring a trademark infringement action in federal court.

BEING ACCUSED OF TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT

On the other hand, trademark registrants can also be the victims of trademark abuse by trademark trolls or more powerful trademark rightsholders, who can make abusive filings bullying smaller or lesser-leverage parties from being able to do business.  Convoluted, counter-intuitive, and headache-inducing, there is nothing worse than checking the mail to receive a postcard or other notice from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office stating that an office action or opposition to a trademark has been received and that a deadline has to be met in response to the opposition.   Most trademark registrants, at this point, simply give up. However, this can result in abuse of the system when much larger companies and entities take advantage of small businesses or individuals by asserting frivolous or very speculative rights to marks or marks in classes that have no relationship to the rightholder’s actual mark.

OVERVIEW OF THE TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT LITIGATION PROCESS

There are two types of trademark proceedings: ones before the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board (TTAB) and proceedings in federal or state civil courts.

TTAB proceedings take place before the trademark issues, as administrative proceedings. In a typical situation, a trademark registrant will register a new trademark. Over the course of several months, the trademark will make its way through the trademark registration process with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, being assigned to a trademark examiner, who will assess the mark and determine whether it meets the requirements to validly issue. It will then go through the publication process and after it has been published, then the opposition period begins.   It is usually at this stage where an opposition is brought. If an opposition is brought by another trademark registrant, then the proceedings are litigated and resolved before the Trademark Trial and Appeals Board.  TTAB follows a strict schedule for the dates by which discovery must be concluded, proceedings litigated, and trial held. At the end of the proceedings, if the opposition is successful, the mark will not issue.

Trademark infringement claims and disputes can be complex, difficult to understand, and counterintuitive. Most victims are not sure where to start or how best to assert their arguments. AXIS can help.

On the other hand, if an infringement is detected after a competing mark has already been registered; or if the competing mark is being used without having gone through the U.S. PTO registration process then, the rightsholder whose mark is being infringed upon has the option to initiate civil legal proceedings (consisting of a trademark infringement action), usually in federal court),  to bar and stop the user from using the mark. In federal court, the action begins through the filing of a Complaint. Once the Complaint is filed, the lawsuit papers will be served on the infringing party.  After that, the Answer or Motion to Dismiss (if a dismissal is being sought) are filed. The lawsuit will then follow the ordinary stages of discovery, expert discovery, pre-trial, and trial.
