Understanding Trademark Law Protections
In most cases, you can't just claim that "it was a mistake" and get away with a criminal act. However, there are two ways in which you can use mistake as a criminal defense; here are they:

A mistake of fact occurs when you misunderstand something, and the misunderstood fact wipes out one of the elements of the crime you have been accused of committing. Consider the example of theft, which is proven by these elements:
When you complete work on a construction project, you expect to get paid. Unfortunately, many contractors and sub-contractors don't receive timely payment for their completed work.

Social security disability insurance exists so that eligible workers can receive financial compensation if they become disabled and can no longer work. Having your social security disability claim approved means that you will begin receiving monthly paychecks from the government, easing the financial pressure of disability-related unemployment.

Welcome, I'm Darby Church. I'd like to share my journey from retail manager to business owner using this website. My attempts to start a business of my own were complicated by the actions of an unethical party. In short, I shared too much information about my products and they were stolen before I could get the business off the ground. Luckily, I had already filed a trademark for those items, which meant they were protected by the law. I still had to hire a lawyer to help me win the case. I took the complaint to court to end the run of products from my unlawful competitor, so I could start running my business. The process enlightened me about the ins and outs of trademark law. I hope my experience can help you avoid the same pitfalls or fight for your products with help from a lawyer. Thanks for visiting.
