The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
Entrepreneurs often think LLCs and DBA/FBN statements keep their names from being violated and that they are not violating others. This is not correct. Registering an LLC or a Doing Business As Statement does not equal trademark protection. The strongest way to protect a brand is to receive federal trademark registration. 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 incumbent on the business owner to retain counsel to assess the trademark risk of using your business name.
2. BRAND PROTECTION
Brand protection is vital for most small businesses. Imagine this – you start a burger restaurant on the main drag of Heber City} 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 pub with the same name as your business in neon lights. 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 pub from using your name. Another frustrating 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 person prior to you using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
If you have a brand, then you need a strategy on what to do if someone infringes your brand. There may be cases where businesses infringe on your trademark without realizing it. In some cases, the infringer will stop when a law firm sends a letter demanding that they stop. If your brand is being intentionally and maliciously exploited, you need to take appropriate measures to protect your brand. You may 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.
