What would you do if you found someone using the same/similar business name or product name or product idea or business idea to yours?

#Tip – don’t take it upon yourself to send a nasty message/letter/email before you have done your home work.

In Australia, sending any sort of ‘demand’ that someone stops using a name or you will take legal action against them without the legal basis for that demand can backfire. For example, by way of the receiver actually commencing proceedings against you for sending a groundless threat of legal action.

Be sure you have the ownership of the ‘thing’ you’re basing your demand on, and be sure that the other person’s conduct constitutes a breach of your rights before sending anything.
