I think that a competitor has stolen my intellectual property. What can I do?
If you think someone has stolen your intellectual property, which could be a logo, or some sort of other trademarks, insignia or a copyright, you need to act quickly. There is an aspect of law called acquiescence, that if you know and you’re on notice that somebody is using something that you have copyrighted or trademarked and you let it go on for long enough, potentially, you could lose your trademark or copyright. So one, you need to move quickly to need to contact an attorney or an intellectual property firm that specializes in IP work, because it’s a highly technical area of law. In fact, it’s not something that my firm handles but I work with a few really good IP attorneys that I recommend, and I work closely with when these situations arise.
