I am setting up a new company with my business partner however we have come across a company trading in the US with the same business name.
They have this name trademarked in the US only and are in a similar industry to us,theres being purely clothing and ours being purely Mixed Martial Arts clothing and equipment.We are a european company with completely differennt logos and stylings and need to know the answers to some key questions about trademark infringement:
If we obtain the trademark for Europe can we trade openly within the member states without infringing on trademark rights?
Alot of our sales will be web based. If a customer from the US finds our website and makes a purchase, is this an infringement of trademark rights?
IAnyhelp would be brilliant thank you
