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 challenge. This is not true. Setting up 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. 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 incumbent on the business owner to retain counsel to assess the trademark risk of using your business name.
2. BRAND PROTECTION
Small businesses have a lot to worry about, but brand protection should not be one of them. Imagine this – you start a burger shop on the main drag of Jackson Heights} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend decades building 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. 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 restaurant from using your name. Another tricky scenario is what to do if you start a business using a name that was already trademarked by another organization.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
If you have a brand, then you need a strategy on what to do if someone infringes your brand. There may be cases where businesses infringe on your brand without realizing it. In some cases, the infringer will stop when a attorney sends a letter demanding that they stop. If someone is intentionally stealing your brand identity to make themselves rich, then you will need to take steps to stop them. You could need to file a lawsuit for a temporary injunction and/or permanent injunction to stop the infringer. You can try to recover lost profits as well.
