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 correct. Securing an LLC or a Fictitious Business Name Statement does not equal trademark protection. The key problem is that 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 important for any business owner to retain a lawyer to assess the trademark risk of using their business name.

2. BRAND PROTECTION

Brand protection is necessary for most small businesses. Imagine this – you start a burger restaurant on the main drag of Ansonia} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years building your reputation. Your customers know your business and know your brand, but you don’t federally register your brand’s name. Then, you happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a year-old pub with the same exact name as your business. 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 hard – 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.

Make sure you have a plan in place to protect your brand if someone infringes your brand. There are many cases where someone might accidentally infringe your trademark. In some cases, the infringer will stop when a attorney sends a letter demanding that they stop. If your brand is being intentionally and maliciously exploited, you need to take appropriate measures to protect your bottom line. You may need to file a lawsuit for a temporary injunction and/or permanent injunction to stop the infringer. You can try to recover lost profits as well.
