The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
A lot of creatives think that setting up an LLC or a DBA/FBN statement means their name is trademarked to protect from dispute. This is not correct. Registering an LLC or a Fictitious Business Name Statement does not equal trademark protection. The strongest way to protect a name is to gain federal trademark registration. You can get government approval to use your name for a business, but those agencies will not detect trademark infringement. As a business owner, you need to hire an attorney to find out if your company name infringes on someone else's trademark.
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 taco restaurant on the main drag of Barclay-Kingston} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend decades building your reputation. But you don’t take steps to federally register your trademark for “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats”. Life can be a gamble sometimes. You end up in Vegas and find out that your restaurant has the same name as a brand new pub on The Strip. Without federal trademark protection, you are limited when it comes to enforcement and protection, meaning there’s little you could do to stop the Vegas pub from using your name. An even more common – and still difficult – situation is what to do if your name brand logo was federally protected by a third party before you started using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
If you have a brand, then you need a strategy on what to do if someone infringes your brand. It's important to be aware of how your brand might be infringed on by others. When an infringement occurs, sending a cease-and-desist notice to the offender can make them stop. In other cases, where the infringer is intentionally and maliciously infringing your brand, you need to be prepared to take steps to fight them. You might need to file a federal lawsuit for a temporary and permanent injunction to stop the infringer, plus you can try to recover damages including lost profits.
