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. Setting up an LLC or a Fictitious Business Name Statement does not equal trademark protection. The Secretary of State and your county recorder don’t cross-reference your business name with the trademark database. 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.

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 White House} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years establishing your reputation. You neglect, however, to federally register your business’s name. You happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a brand new restaurant 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 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.
It is important to have a plan in place in case someone infringes on your name. There may be cases where people infringe on your brand without realizing it. Sometimes, having a law firm send a cease-and-desist letter to the infringer will make them stop.
