Most small businesses need to protect their brands. Imagine this – you start a taco shop on the main drag of Heber City} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend decades building your reputation. You neglect, however, to federally register your business’s name. Imagine going to Las Vegas and finding a year-old pub with the same name as your business in neon lights. Sadly, your options for enforcement and protection would be limited since you have no federal protection for your brand’s name and the Vegas pub is across state lines. 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.

It is important to have a strategy in place in case someone infringes on your brand. There may be cases where businesses infringe on your brand without realizing it.
