The KpopX® Trademarks are important business assets of KpopX Fitness and should be treated with a high level of care. People around the world, including our company, rely on our trademarks to identify our products and services and to distinguish them from those of our competitors. As the creators and global leaders in dance fitness programs, DVD’s, video games, clothing, and accessories, KpopX Fitness takes great pride in it’s products and programs and works relentlessly to improve its products and services. We believe that our passion for excellence is unrivaled.
If KpopX Fitness trademarks became “generic” in a particular area, they might cease to protect consumers and the company from knowing the source of its products and services – anyone may be able to use them without concern of a trademark infringement claim, creating confusion in the marketplace. This is because the word or symbol would no longer indicate to the public that the products or services bearing the KpopX® Trademarks originate from one source, namely, KpopX Fitness.
We respectfully request that you support our efforts to enforce the KpopX® Trademarks and take steps to use them properly and avoid confusion or potential misuse that may yield liability. If you have any questions concerning the proper use of the KpopX® trademarks, contact us via our support page.
