This is question that should be answered by an attorney because it’s hard give a complete answer without more info. Generally, issues occur if consumers would likely be confused as to the source of the two trademarks. To gauge whether confusion is likely, a court will usually consider the following factors:
- the distinctiveness of the mark (the more unique and distinct the mark, the more likely the mark will be protected)
- the similarities between the marks
- proximity of the two marks (same industry? geographic location?)
