Cease and Desist Letter

A Cease and Desist Letter in trademark law is a written communication from a trademark owner to an individual or entity that is allegedly infringing on their trademark rights. The letter typically demands that the recipient immediately stop using the trademark in question and may threaten legal action if the recipient fails to comply.

Cease and desist letters are commonly used in trademark law as a first step in resolving trademark disputes, as they can often be an effective way to stop infringing behavior without resorting to litigation. They can also serve as evidence of the trademark owner's efforts to protect their trademark rights in the event that legal action is required.
