Remedies for Violation of Property Rights

When property is harmed, taken, or destroyed, the most common remedy is an action for monetary damages.  The property itself may be recovered if unlawfully taken.  Wrongful use of a copyright, trademark, service mark, or patent can result in injunctive action, as well as a suit for damages.  If an infringement is intentional, profits resulting from the infringement may also be obtained.

Infringement of a trademark or service mark occurs when a person uses or copies the trademark or service mark of another person without the person’s permission. (e.g., putting Nike label on shoes and selling them)
