I am being sued Infringement and Fraudulent Advertising due

Customer Question

I am being sued for Trademark Infringement and Fraudulent Advertising due to advertising and selling XX compatible supplies (time cards - business forms to use with time clock) without naming them as 'compatible'. However, this particular trademark (XX) is registered as "Computer software and hardware that provides an employee time management solution for tracking employees' time and attendance." No time cards or replacement ink ribbons are listed under this trademark name. Am I in violation of trademark law?

A trademark infringement claim is based on unauthorized use of their trademarked name in your advertising. If that is what you are doing by referencing them then unfortunately their claim may be valid.
