  • It is hard to know if a trademark is legally secured or not. Trademark law protects logos, names, and marketing strategies or devices that are original to one industry or company. This kind of trademark is seen as “powerful” and legally secured. A trademark can always start on the right foot, or they can gradually become strong.  Some trademarks are claimed to be “born strong”, such as Yahoo and Kodak.
  • An example of becoming “strong” is when a trademark becomes famous in time. When an owner presents public awareness and remarkable sales of their trademark, a trademark can grow in strength. Bank of America can be a good example of such a trademark, which its process is named “secondary meaning”. Feeble trademarks could merely mirror the quality of the merchandise build on a term or name, which is normally not secured in trademark law.

Trademark Disputes types

  • Disputes occur when trademark owners decide to escalate their marketing to the internet, assuming that their business names are trademarked, and thinking that they are able to have their domain name online. On the flip side, company name holders adhere to a “first come- first served” motion when trademarking domain names. Trademark disputes arise when the trademark owner decides to sue. In contrast, the owner of the domain name will claim that trademark law does not secure circumstances such as these.

  • A third party deliberately choosing a domain that looks like another trademark fulfilling the purpose of confusing the difference between both trademarks.
  • A confusing situation where the domain owner is not certain whether he register a name or trademark to get benevolence from another success of an owner’s trademark.
  • Cybersquatters who intentionally register deceptive domains and know the original domain owners
  • Disputes between two parties or companies that have identical domain names

This policy offers administrative methods for trademark owners to control the domain name holders that can be causing them trouble. This area still lacks regulation or penalization. Its policy does not fully cover all the legal aspects of trademarks.
  • Concerning the entitlement of trademarks, Common law can be used to resolve disagreements regarding trademark names. Common law is used to avoid client confusion and unjust competition. The regulations are introduced by the state and federal courts and settlements are made in favor of the first company that came up and used the trademark.
