Infringement? It’s important to act quickly!
The sooner you are aware that someone is infringing on your trademark, the better. After all, you don’t want anyone to just piggy-back on your success, or that customers become confused because they don’t see the difference between your trademark and that of a competitor. You can also block the new trademark at relatively low cost – without the need to go to court. That means objecting to the new trademark using what is known as an opposition procedure. You have to do it quickly though: within two months of your competitor’s new trademark being published. In short, there are plenty of reasons to try out BOIP Trademark Alert!
An opposition procedure is a relatively complicated legal process. You must carry out all the steps in the procedure carefully and correctly. An IP specialist can help and advise you further. You can find contact details of IP specialists at www.bmm.eu.
