Internet Trademark Registration and Infringement

Trademark Registration and Infringement on the Internet

Hinch Newman possesses the technical knowledge required to assist with the registration and recuperation of your trademarks and service marks, and to handle complex intellectual property litigation under the Lanham Act.  If you are not working with a skilled Internet trademark lawyer to protect your brand (trademarks, service marks, trade dress, etc.), you are giving away your edge to competitors who will copy you and may use your name and trademark in search engine placement, on their website, or metadata.  Registration is vital.  It decreases the likelihood of another party claiming that your trademark infringes upon their trademark, provides official legal notice to others that your trademark is already taken, and provides a future right to make the mark “incontestable.”  Registration also provides greater remedies for infringement and increases the likelihood of the successful filing of a dispute resolution action for an infringing Internet domain name.

Hinch Newman assists its clients to appreciate the entire scope of considerations and develop solutions and strategies that will offer the greatest degree of protection for their intellectual property, including cease and desist demands and the coordination of trademark registration with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.  The firm also possesses the experience to litigate Internet trademark infringement lawsuits based upon the misappropriation of website content in search engine placement or in keyword search advertising and can represent you before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.
