A: Using the term "everwild" alone for your art, without any additional context or connection to the specific trademarked "everwild music festival," may not necessarily infringe on their trademark. Trademark infringement typically occurs when there is a likelihood of confusion among consumers regarding the source of the goods or services. However, the specific circumstances and factors can vary, so it is advisable to consult with a legal professional who can evaluate your situation and provide appropriate guidance based on the specific details of your art and the trademark in question. They can help you understand the potential risks and advise on the best course of action to avoid any infringement issues.
