The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
We commonly see business owners think that setting up an LLC or registering a DBA/FBN statement means their brand name is trademarked and safe from litigation. This is not accurate. Securing 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. The government allows you to choose your business name, but they don’t check to see if your name is trademarked. 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
Brand protection is critical for most small businesses. Imagine this – you start a hamburger shop on the main drag of He Flys} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years establishing your reputation. You neglect, however, to federally register your business’s name. Imagine going to Las Vegas and finding a brand new diner 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 pub is across state lines. Another difficult scenario is how to deal with a cease-and-desist notice when your brand name is the same as one that was federally registered by another company prior to you using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
Make sure you have a strategy in place to protect your brand if someone infringes your brand. There are many cases where someone might accidentally infringe your brand. When an infringement occurs, sending a demand notice to the offender can make them stop. If someone is intentionally stealing your trademark identity to make themselves rich, then you will need to take steps to stop them. A state lawsuit could be necessary to receive a temporary and permanent injunction to stop the infringer. You can also try to recover damages including lost profits.
