A trademark serves three functions. First, it is an indication that all goods identified by the mark come from or are sponsored by the same source. Second, the mark is a guarantee of the uniform quality of the goods it identifies. Third, the mark serves as an advertisement, for without trademarks there could be no advertising.
If a third party’s trademark infringement, unfair competition or trademark dilution occurs in or affects commerce, the trademark owner may file suit to recover the damages caused by such misconduct and to obtain injunctive relief precluding future such misconduct.
