Are You Policing The Internet To Protect Your Trademark?

With the dawn of the internet there is a whole new set of legal problems with trademark infringement.   The global nature of the internet has opened “Pandora’s box” to anyone, anywhere to view your marketing materials and rip them off!

A business owner should make it a rule to search the internet periodically for violators.  We have handled many cases involving businesses affected by stolen trademarks and most have been settled outside of court.

If you are unsure how to register your trademark and/or if someone is using yours – our attorneys can help.

The Law Office of Robert Eckard & Associates (LORE) has not been retained for this or any other matter by you until such time as a duly executed retainer is signed by you and an authorized agent of LORE and any retainer deposit paid and returned to us.  Nothing contained herein is intended to create an attorney client relationship or be considered legal advice, as such, no conflict of interest shall be presumed in the event LORE is later retained by an adverse party.  See Rule 4-1.18 et. al., 2006 Florida Supreme Court.
