A trademark is a form of legal protection for brand names and symbols that identify the source of a product or service. Trademarks can take the form of a word, slogan, symbol or design – or a combination of these. If someone is using your trademark to confuse people into thinking they are you, or are somehow affiliated with your business, it may be trademark infringement. Using another’s trademark to accurately reference the trademark owner’s products or services, or to compare them to other products or services, is not considered trademark infringement.
If you believe someone is infringing your trademark, next let us know which type of trademark infringement you’re reporting. Please complete the next three boxes if this involves a trademark complaint. You must also complete all other fields on this form.
