The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
A lot of entrepreneurs think that setting up an LLC or a DBA/FBN statement means their name is trademarked to protect from litigation. This is not correct. Registering 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. You can get governmental approvals to use your name for your business, but those governmental agencies don’t check the federal trademark database. 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
Brand protection is critical for most small businesses. Imagine this – you start a hamburger restaurant on the main drag of Windsor} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years building your reputation. But you don’t take steps to federally register your trademark for “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats”. Life can be a gamble sometimes. You end up in Vegas and find out that your restaurant has the same name as a year-old pub on The Strip. 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 pub from using your name. Another frustrating 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 organization prior to you using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
It is important to have a plan in place in case someone infringes on your brand. 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. If your brand is being intentionally and maliciously exploited, you need to take appropriate measures to protect your bottom line. You might need to file a state lawsuit for a temporary and permanent injunction to stop the infringer, plus you can try to recover damages including attorney’s fees.
