What's a certification of cease and desist?
You've created a brand name and built a reputation for quality and service. Unfortunately, business rivals may want to cash in on your hard work by using a brand name or symbol that looks like yours. This can cause confusion among your customers. Keep your trademark by defending it. After sending a cease and desist letter, use this certification to acquire a formal and written promise from a competitor that they will stop using your mark for their gain.
