Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.That is a good question. What the courts would pay attention to is whether or not the names are XXXXX XXXXX or if there would be reasonable confusion in the market between your name and the existing names out there. This is not an objective evaluation but is based on market forces. In addition it may also be based on your own trademark or logo--the more similar it is to their logo, the more 'substantial' confusion there may be in the market. Most likely if your logo is quite different, and you end up selling apparel that is not theirs but made by other designers there is a low chance of being pursued. The more dissimilar you make yourself from them, the far less likely you would give them a reason to send you a cease and desist in this insurance.Hope that helps.
i am dissatisfied with the answer and would like a full refund. thankyou
