Learn more about Certification of Cease and Desist

Your trademark is your marketplace signature, a brand promise to your customers about the quality they can expect from your company. Unfortunately, competitors sometimes infringe upon the business you've built by using a brand name or symbol that's similar to yours. This is deceptive and it can cause a decrease in business and dilute the power of your brand. By law, to keep your trademark you have to defend it when necessary. Defense begins with a trademark cease and desist letter. But sending a letter is not enough. You also need formal written confirmation from the offending company that the infringement will stop. LegalZoom offers a downloadable Certification of Cease and Desist designed to provide you with that exact confirmation.
