WHIPgoup has devised a successful algorithm for policing infringements of its clients’ many famous brands. The script includes methods to identify infringing uses, and a series of enforcement steps designed to halt infringements in the quickest and most economical manner possible. Following its successful methodology, WHIPgroup attorneys file infringement actions in numerous federal district courts and stop dozens of trademark infringers each year.
After a third party persisted in alleging “sponsorship” and “partnership” with SUBWAY®, despite repeated requests to cease and desist, Doctor’s Associates turned to WHIPgroup to enforce its famous SUBWAY® brand against a third party and stop the substantial confusion of SUBWAY customers. WHIPgroup attorneys filed suit in the United States District Court alleging trademark infringement and unfair competition, and ultimately obtained a default judgment, including a permanent injunction and an award of attorney’s fees. The injunction allowed Doctor’s Associates to remove all infringing content from the Internet and prevent further infringement.
