Whether you run a business or are an individual who has created something that you want to safeguard, securing a trademark can be incredibly important. However, some people are unsure of which steps need to be taken or do not have a full understanding of their rights if they believe that someone has infringed upon their trademark later on. Codispoti & Associates is very familiar with the different types of challenges and questions that people across New York City have when it comes to trademark issues.

Regardless of the industry you work in or the area you are focused on, protecting your intellectual property correctly is paramount. After all, it would be very upsetting for many people to see their hard work and brilliant ideas stolen by someone else. When registering your trademark, it is essential to go over your responsibilities and make sure that you work through the application process correctly. Even after you have successfully obtained a trademark, you may find that someone has infringed upon your trademark. As a result, it is crucial to protect your trademark and pinpoint the appropriate course of action in the event that such an infringement arises.

Sometimes, trademark enforcement becomes necessary. Whether you have to take your case to the courtroom or send a cease and desist letter to the transgressor, this is another facet of intellectual property law that must be handled properly.
