The Top Three Areas Small Businesses Need Trademark Support
1. BUSINESS NAME REGISTRATION
We commonly see creatives think that setting up an LLC or registering a DBA/FBN statement means their company name is trademarked and safe from dispute. This is not true. Setting up an LLC or a Fictitious Business Name Statement does not equal trademark protection. Although there are some common law trademark rights, the strongest trademark protection is securing a federal trademark from the United States Patent Trademark Office. You can get government approval to use your name for a business, but those agencies will not detect trademark infringement. 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 burger shop on the main drag of Lewisville} called “Tommy Tequila’s Good Eats” and you spend decades establishing your reputation. You neglect, however, to federally register your business’s name. You happen to go to Vegas for the weekend, and you find a new restaurant 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 pub from using your name. An even more common – and still hard – situation is what to do if your name brand logo was federally protected by a third party before you started using yours.
3. INFRINGEMENT STRATEGY.
It is important to have a playbook in place in case someone infringes on your brand. There are many situations where someone might accidentally infringe your brand. When an infringement occurs, sending a cease-and-desist notice to the offender can make them stop. If someone is purposefully You may need to file a state suit for a temporary and permanent injunction to stop the infringer, plus you can try to recover damages including attorney’s fees.
