Confusingly Similar
In trademark law, when a trademark, logo, or business name is so close to that of an already existing trademark, logo, or name that the public might misidentify the new mark with the older one. Such confusion may not be found if the products or businesses are clearly not in the actual or potential product markets or geographic area of the other.
