The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
Creatives often think LLCs and DBA/FBN statements keep their names from being violated and that they are not violating others. This is not accurate. Registering an LLC or a Fictitious Business Name Statement does not equal trademark protection. The Secretary of State and your county recorder don’t cross-reference your business name with the trademark database. The government allows you to choose your business name, but they don’t check to see if your name is trademarked. It’s incumbent on the business owner to retain counsel to assess the trademark risk of using your business name.
2. BRAND PROTECTION
Brand protection is needed for most small businesses. Imagine this – you start a sandwich restaurant on the main drag of Adamsville} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years building your reputation. But you never get around to registering a federal trademark for “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats”. Imagine going to Las Vegas and finding a new diner with the same name as your business in neon lights. Sadly, your options for enforcement and protection would be limited since you have no federal protection for your brand’s name and the Vegas pub is across state lines. An even more common – and still frustrating – situation is what to do if your name brand slogan was federally protected by a third party before you started using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
It is important to have a playbook in place in case someone infringes on your brand. There are many situations where someone might innocently infringe your trademark. In some cases, the infringer will stop when a attorney sends a notice demanding that they stop. If your trademark is being intentionally and maliciously exploited, you need to take appropriate measures to protect your business. You could need to file a state suit for a temporary and permanent injunction to stop the infringer, plus you can try to recover damages including lost profits.
