TO DEFEND A PATENT OR A TRADEMARK FROM UNAUTHORIZED REPRODUCTION AND USE...
Companies usually bear high costs in terms of money and human skills invested in the creation of a mark as well as in the planning and testing of a product or proceeding, in applying for their registration and arranging their launch in the market. It is therefore clear companies' interest to defend their products and distinctive signs from unauthorized reproduction and use by third parties that try to exploit their innovative value and reputation.
The lack of quality of the counterfeited product, purchased by consumer thinking that it was the original one, may cause great damages to the rightful owner, because who has been unsatisfied with the counterfeited product will be reluctant to purchase the original product in a second time.
When it is proved or there is a likelihood of infringement of an industrial property right, the rightful owner may try to send the counterpart a warning letter and ask the immediate suspension of the illegal practice; however, should a friendly solution of the matter be not possible, the owner shall act before the competent Courts and/or administrative Authorities to enforce his rights and, in case, obtain a refund of the damages suffered as a consequence of the infringement.
