Trademark Infringement

What is Brand Infringement?

A brand is an intangible asset assigned to a specific company, product, or individual. It’s a concept that helps people identify different entities and can include a name, a logo, a particular icon, color, and slogans. A brand name helps create a perception about the product or company and differentiate it from competitors.

Brand infringement in the digital world uses any brands or advertisers trademarked, patent, or copyrighted material to attract customers. Malicious affiliates use the brand's trademarked property like name, logo, slogans, and more to attract user traffic. Using a brand's intellectual property hits its reputation and misleads the customers.
