Was the trademark actually infringed?

Whether a trademark has been infringed depends on several factors: Is there any likelihood of confusion or was an allegedly well-known trademark infringed? In the case of compound signs ("combination signs"), e.g. a word or figurative mark, was the influence of the respective elements of the sign and the scope of protection of the entire sign determined correctly? Is the word element of a word or figurative mark eligible for protection at all? Is the use of the mark perhaps even permitted in your case, e.g. because the sign was not "used as a trademark" or quite simply because of the "principle of exhaustion"?

Therefore, never sign prematurely, even if the deadline is tight. Structure, diction and above all the pre-formulated cease-and-desist declaration tell us whether the asserted claims are justified and enforceable and whether the opposing lawyer is on the level of current jurisdiction.
