What is considered a trademark conflict?
A conflict exists when one trademark is confusingly similar with another trademark already registered and/or being used in commerce. The principal factors used to determine if there would be a chance of confusion include:
• The similarity of the marks
• The commercial relationship between the products and/or services
In some cases, trademarks that may seem similar can coexist if they're unlikely to confuse a consumer. For example, two trademarks that may seem similar can both be allowed if they're used for unrelated products or services, and are therefore unlikely to cause consumer confusion.
