A: Trademark owners are supposed to police their mark, but a cease and desist letter can have some merit, a lot of merit or no merit. It depends on the facts and circumstances surrounding the marks and their use. You should contact an attorney to assist you with determining the viability of an infringement claim from this owner. Please feel free to contact me if I can assist.

A: Consult with an attorney regarding responding to the cease & desist letter and to discuss whether your trademark in fact infringes on the other mark, etc.
