You only have to actively defend a trademark. You don't need to police a copyright or patent to keep it. In fact, you don't even have to exist anymore for your trademarks to be legally enforceable.

Copyrights deal with reproduction, any reproduction is a violation. Trademarks however are about association, a violation is when there is confusion about association. When a trademark is already being used without association a new violation no longer meets the criteria.
