The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
Business owners often think LLCs and DBA/FBN statements keep their names from being violated and that they are not violating others. This is not correct. Setting up 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. You can get governmental approvals to use your name for your business, but those governmental agencies don’t check the federal trademark database. It is important for a business owner to retain legal counsel to assess the risks and benefits of using their company's name.

Brand protection is necessary for most small businesses. Imagine this – you start a hamburger restaurant on the main drag of Bayville} 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”. Life can be a gamble sometimes. You end up in Vegas and find out that your restaurant has the same name as a new restaurant on The Strip. Sadly, your options for enforcement and protection would be limited since you have no federal protection for your brand’s name and the Vegas diner is across state lines. An even more common – and still difficult – situation is what to do if your name brand name was federally protected by a third party before you started using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
If you have a brand, then you need a playbook on what to do if someone infringes your brand. It's important to be aware of how your brand might be infringed on by people. When an infringement occurs, sending a demand letter to the offender can make them stop.
