When you own a registered trademark or any copyright (whether registered or unregistered), you have specific legal rights protecting that Intellectual Property. 


If another party uses your protected Intellectual Property without your consent, they are in violation of your rights. In legal terms, this violation is called an infringement.  An infringement can cause serious, sometimes irreparable harm to your business, and it is up to you to stop it. 


Cease and Desist Letter is the first step in resolving this infringement. The letter is sent to the infringer to put them on notice that they are infringing on your rights and engaging in illegal activity that is causing harm to you. It is a strong warning that demands that they stop violating your rights and lets them know that if they don’t stop, you will pursue legal action against them.


Cease and Desist Letter can be a quick and inexpensive, yet very effective way to resolve the matter and get the other party to stop using your Intellectual Property without you having to go to court, which can be time-consuming and expensive.


Even if the infringer does not stop the infringing use of your protected Intellectual Property, Cease and Desist Letter, and accompanying proof that they received it, will serve as important evidence that you put them on notice of the alleged illegal behavior. From that point forward, if the infringer continues to use your Intellectual Property after you made them aware of the infringement, your legal claim will be strengthened and you may be entitled to receive additional monetary damages, should the case go to court.


This package includes two templates: (1) a Trademark Cease and Desist Letter to be used for a registered trademark (2) a Copyright Cease and Desist Letter to be used for an unregistered copyright.
