Cease and Desist Letter for Trademarks
Someone is selling t-shirts with your logo front and center. A competitor is using a variation of your word mark as its business’s name. A website mentions you or your business in a way that implies you’re connected or related, but you’re not. Demand they knock it off firmly but politely. This template includes:
- Declaration that you own a specific trademark
- Description of how they used your trademark without permission
- Confirmation that you did not authorize your trademark to be used
- Instructions, among nine options, for what they must do to cure the infringement
- Warning about what might happen if they ignore your letter
All our templates are attorney-drafted (by attorneys who know small businesses and the issues they face), immediately downloadable in Word, include in-document directions and separate instructions that walk you through how to customize the template and what the legal terms mean, and are written in easy-to-understand language with minimal jargon.
Who Needs This: If you own a trademark (word mark, logo) and need to stop an infringer in its tracks, a cease and desist letter is step one.
