Response Measures:

1) For those who have not received complaints during use, change the name or take it off the shelf quickly.

2) Early warning to “avoid infringement” is the most effective way to avoid infringement. Before listing or using, you can check it on the following three websites:

1. Infringement detection tool: Copy the link and open it on the computer: https://yayip.com/index/tort/index.html

2. https://www.uspto.gov/trademarks/search

3. https://branddb.wipo.int/branddb/en/

3) For those whose accounts have been complained about and blocked, please recognize the fact of infringement. After the complaint is served, the defendant needs to submit a defense within 21 days, which is called the response period. Regardless of whether it is determined that one has infringed, one must deal with it within the response period. If the defendant does not reply or ignores it within the limited period, the court will directly rule that all the plaintiff’s lawsuits are established, and the defendant will face not only the frozen amount being withdrawn, but also huge compensation.

4) Please have a professional lawyer issue a lawyer’s letter or settle or respond with the other party. Our company accepts to handle such cases and has rich experience.
