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 true. Registering an LLC or a Fictitious Business Name Statement does not equal trademark protection. The Secretary of State doesn't check for trademarks to make sure businesses are not violating them. 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 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 taco restaurant on the main drag of Gold} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend decades establishing your reputation. You neglect, however, to federally register your business’s name. Then, you happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a 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 diner is across state lines. Another tricky scenario is what to do if you start a business using a name that was already trademarked by another company.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
It is important to have a plan in place in case someone infringes on your brand. There may be cases where people infringe on your trademark without realizing it. In some cases, the infringer will stop when a law firm sends a notice demanding that they stop. willfully and maliciously infringing your brand, you need to be prepared to take steps to fight them.
