What common trends do you see in IP & Trademark disputes and litigation?

In the franchise arena, numerous intellectual property issues commonly arise, particularly concerning trademark use. A significant situation occurs during the termination of a franchise relationship when the franchisee desires to continue operating their business using the established trademark, often familiar to the customer base. However, the franchisor typically opposes this, leading to trademark disputes.

Additionally, issues may arise when franchisees either appropriately or inappropriately use the intellectual property owned and established by the franchisor or other businesses. This intellectual property, considered proprietary to the company, may face misuse or usage beyond the agreed-upon scope, leading to disputes. For instance, a franchisee may use a trademark to sell products in a physical location but might misuse it by distributing the same brand’s products through mail or the internet without the franchisor’s permission. Similar issues can extend to other commercial relationships involving licensing agreements or exclusive distributorships, where intellectual property plays a crucial role.

These concerns have become even more prevalent due to significant technological advancements in society.
