Dilution can weaken a trademark's appeal

The main issue that crops up when someone infringes on a trademark is that they may use it to make sales. For instance, they could use the logo of a famous company to produce knock-off items and sell them for far less. Every sale that they make potentially takes a sale away from the company that owns the trademark. They can potentially lose a lot of income over the issue.

Why is intellectual property theft getting worse?

2 types of trademark dilution

Trademark infringement often involves a mark being used without permission but not always. Sometimes, it just involves a very similar mark being used and harming the reputation of the first. This type of infringement can change the public's perception of the original mark. They once thought it related to something particular, singular or unique, but the second, very similar mark can make them stop thinking that even when the two are not the same.
