Dear NE

 

I am sorry to hear that you have been accused of trademark infringment and counterfeiting.  Please understand that both of those causes of action are very serious and can be expensive if a judgement is found against you.   Please do not ignore the matter as that is likely the most detrimental position.  I would consult counsel and create a plan to defend your position in a cost-effective manner.  I wish you the best of luck. 

 

Sincerely

Andrew

What are the lawyers' accusations?  Did you copy or downloading anything without permission?

Intellectual Property
The legal system recognizes the rights of people and companies that invent and create unique works, granting them ownership of those tangible and intangible assets through a number of intellectual property laws. Intellection property, or IP, includes patents, trademarks, copyright, trade dress and trade secrets. Intellectual property attorneys work with businesses and individuals (including inventors, writers, composers, artists and designers) to help protect these intellectual assets. IP lawyers and law firms can assist with taking initial steps to protect assets, while also working with clients to license items and to protect assets that are plagiarized, infringed and/or misappropriated.
