Common intellectual property right lawsuits

As long as humans are alive, they will probably argue about who should receive credit for which idea. This is why trademark litigation is such an important area of the law. Numerous disagreements arrive over intellectual property rights. Also falling under this category of the law are cases that involve people who try to steal the mark or brand of others and apply it to a different product.

Below are some common types of trademark litigation that patent attorneys frequently see:

Counterfeit products: Have you ever seen a fake Rolex watch or a fake Gucci bag being sold on the street or at a flea market? These items need to be manufactured and they are often manufactured by huge companies employing numerous workers. However, when a company takes the label or mark of another product and tries to hijack its name and reputation to sell its own products, it is highly illegal.

Trademarks that violate other trademarks: The United States Patent and Trademark office sometimes makes mistakes. It may award a patent or trademark to a company or individual even though another, strikingly-similar patent or trademark already exists for another party. Getting such a trademark canceled may require a lawsuit to be filed, or maybe it can be achieved through an out-of-court settlement.

Domestic and foreign trade disputes: United States laws that apply to patent and trademark registration can be particularly different from foreign laws. However, those whose patents or trademarks are being violated in foreign countries can still fight back with legal strategies to protect their intellectual property rights.

What kind of patent or trademark problem are you currently facing? You may be able to protect your intellectual property rights via a lawsuit or an out-of-court settlement guided by a competent Irvine intellectual property and trademark lawyer.
