CHANEL NO. 5 Trademark Lawyers Knock on the Door of Adelaide Business “Chocolate at No.5”
The owner of SA Chocolate at No.5 business, Ms Peck, has been trading, spent time on reading the Trademark information provided by IP Australia (https://www.ipaustralia.gov.au). She thought it looked easy enough to do it herself. So she paid to Lodge a Trademark Application directly without representation by a Trademark Lawyer or Trademark Attorney.
Her Trademark Application actually alerted French based CHANEL’s Trademark Lawyers to the SA Chocolate at No.5 business. She withdrew her accepted Trademark Application per the demands made by CHANEL.
Ms Peck is now out of pocket for the wasted trademark registrations, legal expense and wasted nearly a year in time applying only resulting in a stressful outcome to resolve. No body likes receiving a Cease and Desist letter threatening legal action. Even worse, she may have actually been sued in the courts, without warning.
Don’t cut corners and think you can do the legals yourself. It could end up costly for you, or even wind you up in the Federal Court if the Trademark Owner wants damages and compensation. Trademark Applications can ALERT competitors. So look before you leap, have a Trademark Lawyer conduct infringement searches before trading with a brand or logo.

DID YOU KNOW?
Think you need not worry because IP Australia accepted your Trademark? Think again. If you were never entitled and should never have been registered a Trademark, competitors can take the matter to Court and have the Trademark Registration looked at again, and then removed to claim compensation.
A Trademark Lawyer in your pocket is vital for safe trading.
