: I have a business I recently started with a website. However, the website URL is very similar to small business site. However, while they were in business before me, I had this domain registered several years ago before I started this venture.
: I've been ordered by their attorneys to cease and desist as they cited the Lanham Act and the fact that consumers would be confused by the site and potentially place orders with me they meant to do with the other site.
: My question is, after reading up on the Lanham Act, should I even bother fighting this? It is not my primary source of income. Thoughts?
There are lots of questions here, for instance is the lawyer that wrote the letter and intellectual property specialist?
