Monticello, KY asked in Business Law for Kentucky

Q: I'm developing a product that involves the use of other trademarked products from another company. Is this ok?

To be specific, it is a container made specifically to contain and transport Nintendo Switch games. The product explicitly details it is for Nintendo Switch games. I assume this could be an issue due to the face the Nintendo Switch is a registered trademark of Nintendo. What do I need to do for this product to be legal to sell?

A: You need the input of a trademark attorney. You're correct in that this involves business law, but your question would have a better chance of being seen by a trademark attorney if you reposted in the Trademark section. Good luck
