The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support

1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION

We commonly see business owners think that setting up an LLC or filing a DBA/FBN statement means their brand name is trademarked and safe from litigation. This is not accurate. Registering an LLC or a Doing Business As Statement does not equal trademark protection. Although there are some common law trademark rights, the strongest trademark protection is securing a federal trademark from the United States Patent Trademark Office. So you can get the Secretary of State and county approval 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 any business owner to retain a lawyer to assess the trademark risk of using 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 hot dog restaurant on the main drag of Ashland} 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”. You happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a brand new 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 restaurant is across state lines. Another frustrating scenario is what to do if you start a business using a name that was already trademarked by another person.

3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.

If you have a brand, then you need a plan on what to do if someone infringes your brand. There are many cases where someone might innocently infringe your brand. In some cases, the infringer will stop when a attorney sends a notice demanding that they stop. If someone is intentionally stealing your brand identity to make money, then you will need to take steps to stop them. A state lawsuit might be needed to obtain a temporary and permanent injunction to stop the infringer. You can also try to recover damages including lost profits.
