What should you do if you catch someone ripping off your brand?
First, you need to understand if this is what is happening. Are the trademarks the same?
Are their products and services the same as yours? Are they in the same country and geographical areas where you have protection for your brand?
If your answer to any of these is no, there is likely no infringement. When someone uses the same name for totally different products or in another region or country, there is typically no infringement.
More than simply because someone is using something similar to your brand is required.
You should clearly understand your legal rights to sue regarding infringement of your trademark.
