The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
We commonly see creatives 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 Fictitious Business Name Statement does not equal trademark protection. Name protection is stronger with a federal trademark from the United States Patent Trademark Office rather than time-based local common law trademark rights. So you can get their clearance 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 is important for a business owner to retain legal counsel to assess the risks and benefits of using their company's name.
2. BRAND PROTECTION
Brand protection is vital for most small businesses. Imagine this – you start a taco shop on the main drag of He Flys} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years establishing your reputation. But you never get around to registering a federal trademark for “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats”. You happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a brand new restaurant with the same exact name as your business. 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. 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 organization prior to you using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
Make sure you have a plan in place to protect your name if someone infringes your brand. There are many cases where someone might innocently infringe your brand. When an infringement occurs, sending a demand letter to the offender can make them stop. willfully and maliciously exploited, you need to take appropriate measures to protect your bottom line. You might need to file a lawsuit for a temporary injunction and/or permanent injunction to stop the infringer. You can try to recover lost profits as well.
