When to Consider Trademark Arbitration

Friday, January, 21, 2011

You may want to take advantage of a trademark arbitration if you recently trademarked something and someone else subsequently uses it without your permission. Through this process, you are inviting a third party (an arbitration lawyer) to come in and attempt to resolve the issue for you. Ultimately, arbitration is usually a good experience for both parties.

While it is true that many people have turned to arbitration for trademark disputes, as a means for a solution to a problem that generally proves to be temporary -- in most cases -- the party that decided to use arbitration services has experienced success again and again. It's not something that is guaranteed to fix your problem, but there is a very big chance that it will. The best way to find out whether or not trademark arbitration will benefit you (and your individual case) is to contact someone who specializes in the process. We recommend checking any references that the arbitration attorney may have to find out if they are a well-established company or individual. Once you do this, you should be able to get the ball rolling on your dispute. It is also not your responsibility to inform the other party about your decision to pursue an arbitration, and it is probably best to break all contact with them once you do. We wish your great success with your decision to pursue a trademark arbitration. Contact a trademark arbitration today and get ready to experience the unique arbitrating benefits you're sure to receive!
