Are you starting a business?
When starting a business, you’ll have to decide whether to stay local or sell your product or services nationally. If you stay local, we can help you with common law trademark rights. If you want to sell goods or services nationally, you may want to consider checking to see if your logo, slogan, or business name are being used already. If not, we can help you trademark it. If it is being used, now would be the time to come up with a new logo, slogan, or business name.
Do you protect your logo, slogan, or business name?
If you own a business with a logo, slogan, or business name that you had specially designed, you should consider filing for trademark protection. There are many steps that go into trademarking a logo, slogan, or business name. One step is to see whether anybody else is using the same or similar logo, slogan, or business name. It’s better to know if you should change your logo, slogan, or business name before you spend a lot of money on letterhead, business cards, advertisements, signage, etc.
Is someone using your logo?
You spent a lot of time and money designing your logo and building up your business name. If somebody else is using that same logo to sell products, that is likely a violation of trademark laws. Contact us to write a cease and desist letter. If you haven’t yet registered your logo for trademark protection, we can help you with that, as well. First use in commerce is an important element to who owns the rights to a trademark.
