Hi we have a logo I designed, it is UK trademarked registered, we recently asked a company in the USA to help market us, and the said that we would have to change our name etc, as it was too similar to theirs. We had no idea they existed until we were given their details by a third party. Names etc we can change no real issue. They are insinuating we copied their name, logo etc. and are threatening a cease & desist order. Question is how similar are they, are they distinguishable enough?
I am biased, so what do you guys and girls think?
Adidas is three stripes, Tesla model 3 is three stripes.
Our thumbnail logo:
Their company thumbnail:
Their main logo also gives their company name to the right, our does not, it’s just the image.
Many thanks in advance for taking the time to read this question and give your opinion.
