What response is required for a cease and desist letter?

A cease and desist letter may be either a nuisance, a serious threat to your business, or something in between.

Where a comparison of your product and the trademark that has allegedly been infringed reveals no legal liability on your part, it is important to respond to the sender with a clear explanation of why their letter has been sent in error.

Even if there is potential infringement, it is important to fully evaluate your options up front in order to minimize the cost and reach a resolution as quickly as possible.
