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 company name is trademarked and safe from dispute. This is not correct. Securing an LLC or a Fictitious Business Name Statement does not equal trademark protection. The main issue here is that the Secretary of State and your county recorder don’t cross-reference trademarks with business names. You can get governmental approvals to use your name for your business, but those governmental agencies don’t check the federal trademark database. As a business owner, you need to hire an attorney to find out if your company name infringes on someone else's trademark.

2. BRAND PROTECTION

Most small businesses need to protect their brands. Imagine this – you start a burger restaurant on the main drag of Helena} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years establishing your reputation. But you don’t take steps to federally register your trademark for “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats”. Imagine going to Las Vegas and finding a year-old 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 diner is across state lines. Another tricky scenario is what to do if you start a business using a name that was already trademarked by another person.

3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.

Make sure you have a strategy in place to protect your name 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 someone is intentionally copying your trademark identity to make a profit, then you will need to take steps to stop them. A federal lawsuit may be needed to obtain a temporary and permanent injunction to stop the infringer. You can also try to recover damages including lost profits.
