: I would like to find out if a particular business name that I came up with is already taken, but I do not know where to look. Also, if the name has not been taken, I would like to know how to go about copyrighting the name for myself.
Dear Mr. Bogdonoff,
I had one client with several marks that started to register their own marks. The then came back to me to go over what they had done and to register more marks and then sold their business for BIG bucks.
Even if you can do it there is often more than following steps. There is understanding the subtleties of the law and knowing haw to avoid trouble.
