Both parties in this trademark lawsuit recently began using their respective trademarks (ROAMBUILT v. ROAM). ROAMBUILT is used in connection with “automotive parts,” primarily custom parts for Mercedes Benz Sprinter vans. ROAM is being used in connection with vehicle rental services and automobile customization services.
The parties corresponded for several months regarding the possibility of infringement and trademark coexistence. Unable to resolve the situation themselves, Plaintiff Roambuilt now seeks court intervention as they assert slight priority rights.
