Many New York businesses invest a lot in their brands, their trademarks and their distinctive packaging and appearance. What if somebody else attempted to usurp their protected intellectual property for purposes of unfair competition? Many would find this to be financially harmful. On the other hand, if a competitor was caught unawares by another company’s allegations of unfair competition, they would probably want a chance to explain the situation.
Not long ago, we told you about the Lanham Act and how it protects businesses that have been the victims of these kinds of unfair competition. The Lanham Act affords businesses the opportunity to argue that another company is unfairly using trademarks and packaging to cause confusion in the marketplace. The Lanham Act also affords defendants the right to defend themselves against these kinds of allegations.
