The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
We commonly see entrepreneurs think that setting up an LLC or registering a DBA/FBN statement means their brand name is trademarked and safe from challenge. This is not correct. Securing an LLC or a Doing Business As Statement does not equal trademark protection. The problem is that the Secretary of State and your county recorder don’t cross-reference business names with the trademark list. You can get governmental approvals to use your name for your business, but those governmental agencies don’t check the federal trademark database. It's important for any business owner to retain a lawyer to assess the trademark risk of using their business name.

Imagine this – you start a taco shop on the main drag of Hawthorne} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend decades establishing your reputation. You neglect, however, to federally register your business’s name. Imagine going to Las Vegas and finding a new restaurant with the same name as your business in neon lights. 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. An even more common – and still hard – situation is what to do if your name brand slogan was federally protected by a third party before you started using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
