The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support

1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION

Business owners often think LLCs and DBA/FBN statements keep their names from being violated and that they are not violating others. This is not correct. Securing an LLC or a Doing Business As Statement does not equal trademark protection. The Secretary of State doesn't check for trademarks to make sure businesses are not violating them. You can get government approval to use your name for a business, but those agencies will not detect trademark infringement. 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

Most small businesses need to protect their brands. Imagine this – you start a hot dog shop on the main drag of Hudson} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend decades building your reputation. But you don’t take steps to federally register your trademark for “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats”. Then, you happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a new restaurant with the same exact name as your business. 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. An even more common – and still hard – situation is what to do if your name brand slogan was federally protected by a third party before you started using yours.

3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.

Make sure you have a plan in place to protect your name if someone infringes your brand. There may be cases where others infringe on your trademark without realizing it. Sometimes, having a lawyer send a demand notice to the infringer will make them stop. If someone is intentionally copying your trademark identity to make a profit, then you will need to take steps to stop them. You might need to file a federal lawsuit for a temporary and permanent injunction to stop the infringer, plus you can try to recover damages including attorney’s fees.
