market law | Trademark Infringement Case


assignment law


Trademark infringements amounts to using an already registered trademark or served mark on goods and services that are taken to the market, without the consent or licensing of the owner. Trademark law is meant to ensure that people are protected from unfair exploitation of their intellectual property by turning such intellectual properties into rights that are protected by international and regional laws.  A brand that is performing well in the market is likely to attract competitors who may be tempted to use the same trademark to the market with little changes. This amounts to trademark infringement because it will cause confusion, deception, or mistake regarding the source of the goods or services. This study examines existence of trademark infringement in the case of NexbarPlc and Nucleus Beverages Plc.
