It had been registered since September 2014. Hadn't really been online since February 2015.
Come to think of it maybe $200. But that's it. Nothing was sold. I hadn't started accepting payments.
No. I live in another country. I put this in my original post. They stated I have a business address in the UK, which I do not.
They got the address from a google search but when I search it seems to be a post office place. I have no affiliation with it.
I am worried about IP offence in the UK. Could they attempt to do something with this and have it come back on me in the USA? I.e. contact the police? I have taken everything that had the name in it or a picture down, froze the site, etc. Nothing was sold. Would they spend the time and money to do this since I have been in contact with the Trademark Practitioner and not ignored anything? That's my concern. As well, I put in my original post the trademark practitioner wants to speak to me via phone on Wednesday and asked on justanswer.co.uk what can I expect, what should I answer, and what outcomes I may face.
But it says on the gov.uk website it is an offence that has 6 months custody and a fine for unauthorized use of a trademark. I do travel to the UK once every 2 years and do not want an issue when I do return.
As well, I have asked what would I expect to be asked during the phone conversation and what should I answer?
I just don't want the company to try to come after me in the USA when I know they will ask details via phone on Wed.
It does help. They said I was advertising the name of their product, and there were pictures (again nothing sold, no way to buy it). Would the pictures constitute copying their brand and thus become a prosecution offence or would they have to have items in their hands to determine this?
