One of my client has received a "Cease & Desist" Notice from Trademark Agent who is not an Advocate.
Que 1: Can Trademark Agents empanelled with Registrar of Trademarks issue "Cease and Desist" notice ?
Que 2: Is it not necessary that for a third person to issue such notices on behalf of clients, he/she should be an Advocate?
Que 3: Does Empanellement with various departements authorise such persons to issue outlandish Notices to other people?
Que 4: Are such empanellements not meant only for prosecution on behalf of Clients with such departements only?
Que 5: If such Trademark Agents are not authorised, how should we deal with notices issued by them?
