The Pastor’s Study

QUESTION:  What duties do I have to protect my trademarks and service marks?

ANSWER:  When someone knowingly uses a trademark without permission it is called infringement.  When someone uses a product or service in such a way that it is similar to your trademark or service mark, either intentionally or unknowingly, that is called infringement.  It is a trademark and service mark owner’s job to protect marks from infringement, or risk losing them.  The standard for deciding if another mark is infringing is if there is a “likelihood of confusion” between them.
