Is "Live like a Pirate" Clothing an infringement on the trademark

This answer was rated:

Is "Live like a Pirate" Clothing an infringement on the trademark "Living like a Pirate" Gear?

Bridgeth :

Yes, it likely would be. The test for trademark infringement is whether the marks would cause a likelihood of confusion to consumers. It is likely that a consumer would mistake "Live Like a Pirate" clothing with "Living Like a Pirate" clothing.

Bridgeth :

As long as the products sold are the same.


Bridgeth :

I.e. in the same category as the trademark.



They are tshirts & other gear, but not the same designs

I own the trademark & found this on the interent for sale at

What can I do without getting an attorney involved?

Bridgeth :

You should hire an intellectual property attorney to send them a Cease and Desist letter and can also demand that they pay damages for trademark infringement. I would look on or martindale for IP attorneys in your area.


I've contacted them asking them to stop. I have also provided information they asked for about the trademark , they seem to be stalling......I guess hiring an attorney is the next step. Thanks for your help
