The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
A lot of business owners think that setting up an LLC or a DBA/FBN statement means their name is trademarked to protect from dispute. This is not accurate. Securing an LLC or a Doing Business As Statement does not equal trademark protection. The main issue here is that the Secretary of State and your county recorder don’t cross-reference trademarks with business names. So you can get their clearance 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 any business owner to retain a lawyer to assess the trademark risk of using their business name.
2. BRAND PROTECTION
Most small businesses need to protect their brands. Imagine this – you start a sandwich restaurant on the main drag of Woonsocket} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend years establishing your reputation. But you never get around to registering a federal trademark for “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats”. Then, you happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a brand new diner 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 restaurant is across state lines. Another frustrating scenario is what to do if you start a business using a name that was already trademarked by another person.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
It is important to have a playbook in place in case someone infringes on your brand. It's important to be aware of how your brand might be infringed on by others. In some cases, the infringer will stop when a lawyer sends a notice demanding that they stop. willfully copying your trademark identity to make money, then you will need to take steps to stop them.
