Q: I know someone who is trying to open a business that violates trademark. Who would I contact?
There is a business opening in my town that is using the trademarked name of another business. They do not have the rights to use the name under trademark. Who would I get in touch with about that
You should contact a "trademark infringement" or "intellectual property" attorney to discuss possible options here. This will be very fact specific and you will need to give them more information for them to advise you about options moving forward.
Also, it is unclear from you question if you own the business that is about to be infringed upon. The person/entity who has an interest here would need to contact the attorney (I.e. owner/manager of one of the businesses).
I wish you the best.
