Trademark counterfeiting refers to when an established trademark is placed on a product or service that is not one of the legitimate goods offered by the trademark owner. The federal Trademark Act, also called the Lanham Act, prohibits such counterfeiting.
In the United States, counterfeiting laws are becoming more and more favorable for those who own trademarks.

What Are Trademark Colors?
Trademark colors are the specific shades and hues registered to a particular brand.
Why Trademark Colors Matter
Colors can make people think or feel a certain way about a product. A color can be associated with products in a literal or an abstract way to produce certain psychological effects. Blue, for example, can be used for frozen, cool products, while green is often used for healthy or organic choices. Certain colors can be considered to work together or be particularly aesthetically pleasing. Green and yellow are closely related, so they appear to be harmonious. Vibrant and eye-catching colors can produce certain visual effects. Some colors grab the audience's attention right away. Some can make text easier to read.
