A: If a trademark is confusingly similar to another registered trademark and there is a likelihood of confusion for consumers as to the source of the good or services being represented by the trademarks, then the trademark examiner may reject an application for trademark registration. However many factors determine whether one mark is confusingly similar to another including whether the marks are in similar class/categories or completely different classes. Consult with a trademark attorney to assist you in this process.
