What is indicative trademark use?

While a trademark owner has the theoretical right to prevent any unauthorized use of its trademark, in reality, there are cases where others' use of the trademark is justified, as they need to use it to provide information to consumers about their products. For instance, vendors, repairers, and parts suppliers dealing in "Apple" computers need to use the trademark to describe the products they sell or the services they offer. However, unscrupulous dealers, such as those pretending to be franchisees or selling second-hand computers as new, may cross the line and infringe on the trademark owner's interests.
