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. Securing an LLC or a Doing Business As Statement does not equal trademark protection. Although there are some common law trademark rights, the strongest trademark protection is securing a federal trademark from the USPTO. You can get government approval to use your name for a business, but those agencies will not detect trademark infringement. 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
Small businesses have a lot to worry about, but brand protection should not be one of them. Imagine this – you start a hot dog restaurant on the main drag of Huntington} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend decades building your reputation. You neglect, however, to federally register your business’s name. Imagine going to Las Vegas and finding a year-old diner 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 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.
Make sure you have a plan in place to protect your brand if someone infringes your brand. It's important to be aware of how your brand might be infringed on by businesses. In some cases, the infringer will stop when a lawyer sends a letter demanding that they stop. willfully ripping off your trademark identity to make a profit, then you will need to take steps to stop them.
