Attorneys Committed To Protecting Intellectual Property

Trademark infringement is the unauthorized use of a trademark or service mark on or in connection with goods and/or services in a manner that is likely to cause confusion, deception or mistake about the source of the goods and/or services.

An action for copyright infringement may arise where a third party violates one or more of the exclusive rights granted to copyright owners. To establish infringement, the plaintiff must prove:

  1. Ownership of a valid copyright
  2. Copying of constituent elements of the work that are original

A claim for infringement of a registered copyright or trademark can entitle a plaintiff to statutory damages beyond a plaintiff's actual damages.
