The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
A lot of entrepreneurs think that setting up an LLC or a DBA/FBN statement means their name is trademarked to protect from dispute. This is not true. Setting up 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. So you can get their clearance to use your business name, but you’re still exposed to potential trademark infringement liability because your name might infringe on someone’s trademark. It's important for a business owner to retain legal counsel to help them assess the risks and benefits of their business name.
2. BRAND PROTECTION
Small businesses have a lot to worry about, but brand protection should not be one of them. Imagine this – you start a hamburger restaurant on the main drag of Arvada} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years establishing your reputation. But you never get around to registering a federal trademark for “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats”. Then, you happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a brand new restaurant 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. Another hard scenario is what to do if you start a business using a name that was already trademarked by another company.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
If you have a brand, then you need a strategy on what to do if someone infringes your brand. There are many situations where someone might innocently infringe your brand. Sometimes, having a law firm send a cease-and-desist letter to the infringer will make them stop. If someone is intentionally stealing your trademark identity to make a profit, then you will need to take steps to stop them. 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.
