Hello Gary,

You can find several sample cease and desist letters online at:

Trademark Cease and Desist Letter

Trademark Cease & Desist Letter

Trademark Cease and Desist Letter

I personally like the first one listed. It covers dates of discovery of infringement, dates of your usage, dates of registration etc., and it contains a cease and desist agreement at the bottom of the letter.

I hope this helps.

Thomas

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
