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 correct. Registering an LLC or a Doing Business As Statement does not equal trademark protection. Brand protection is stronger with a federal trademark from the USPTO rather than use-based local common law trademark rights. 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.

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 diner from using your name. An even more common – and still frustrating – situation is what to do if your name brand name was federally protected by a third party before you started using yours.
