What is a Cease and Desist Letter?
I think most people know what a cease and desist letter is. And if they don’t, then they certainly will after they read through it. You will need legal assistance if you have received a cease and desist letter. You need an attorney to assess the situation for your potential liability so that you can understand the ramifications of the letter. And if the letter is baseless, then you still need a lawyer to articulate this to the party that sent the letter. A well-crafted response to a cease and desist letter can end the legal matter before it even begins.
Likewise, if you believe that someone is infringing your patent, trademark, or copyright, then your first legal step is to send a cease and desist letter.
