The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
Creatives often think LLCs and DBA/FBN statements keep their names from being violated and that they are not violating others. This is not accurate. Registering an LLC or a Fictitious Business Name Statement does not equal trademark protection. The key problem is that the Secretary of State and your county recorder don’t cross-reference your business name with the trademark database. The government allows you to choose your business name, but they don’t check to see if your name is trademarked. It’s incumbent on the business owner to retain counsel to assess the trademark risk of using your business name.

Imagine this – you start a burger restaurant on the main drag of Greeley} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend decades building your reputation. But you don’t take steps to federally register your trademark for “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats”. Then, you happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a new restaurant 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 difficult scenario is what to do if you start a business using a name that was already trademarked by another person.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
If you have a brand, then you need a strategy on what to do if someone infringes your brand. It's important to be aware of how your brand might be infringed on by people.
