Daunted by the idea of registering a trademark? Confused as to whether or not you “need” to register? Need to know about copyrights or copyright infringement? Perhaps you’re concerned about keeping your domain name in the face of possible trademark owner action. Maybe you’ve seen the PROTECT-IP Act and are concerned as to how it may impact your business. You’ve come to the right place.
It is very important to consult with an experienced trademark attorney before you choose a name for a product, service, or company. The investment you will make in promoting the name can be substantial, and may all be wasted if someone else has greater rights, and forces you to stop using the trade name.
