The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
We commonly see creatives think that setting up an LLC or filing a DBA/FBN statement means their company name is trademarked and safe from dispute. This is not correct. Setting up an LLC or a Doing Business As Statement does not equal trademark protection. Brand protection is stronger with a federal trademark from the United States Patent Trademark Office rather than time-based local common law trademark rights. 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. It's important for a business owner to retain legal counsel to help them assess the risks and benefits of their business name.
2. BRAND PROTECTION
Most small businesses need to protect their brands. Imagine this – you start a hot dog restaurant on the main drag of Jacinto City} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years building your reputation. Your customers know your business and know your brand, but you don’t federally register your brand’s name. You happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a year-old pub with the same exact name as your business. 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 diner from using your name. An even more common – and still frustrating – situation is what to do if your name brand name was federally protected by a third party before you started using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
If you have a brand, then you need a plan on what to do if someone infringes your brand. There may be cases where others infringe on your trademark without realizing it. In some cases, the infringer will stop when a lawyer sends a letter demanding that they stop. If your brand is being purposefully You might need to file a state suit for a temporary and permanent injunction to stop the infringer, plus you can try to recover damages including lost profits.
