The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
We commonly see entrepreneurs think that setting up an LLC or filing a DBA/FBN statement means their business name is trademarked and safe from challenge. This is not true. Securing an LLC or a Fictitious Business Name 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. So you can get the Secretary of State and county approval to use your business name, but you’re still exposed to potential trademark infringement liability because your name might infringe on someone’s trademark. 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 sandwich shop on the main drag of Hot Springs National Park} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years building 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. 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 restaurant 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 person prior to you using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
If you have a brand, then you need a playbook on what to do if someone infringes your brand. There are many cases where someone might accidentally infringe your trademark. When an infringement occurs, sending a cease-and-desist notice to the offender can make them stop. In other cases, where the infringer is purposefully You could 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.
