: : How do I find out if a name has already been copywrighted and what is the approximate cost to getting a business name and logo copywrighted?
It looks more as if you are interested in trademark. A logo used as a trademark may also registerable as a copyright. There is more than even seaching involved. If someone else has designed the logo for you, you need a written agreement to protect yourself. We can discuss this matter to figure cost and the best way to proceed. Remember if you pay very little you have reason to question the value of what you get. If you pay a lot you are more likely to get better representation but there is no assurance that you are getting value. Price is not the issue. If you cannot afford the basic costs which are not high, then it doesn't matter. If you can afford the price it is well for you to understand your options and the risks involved. If the law were a matter of black and white. There would be no need for lawyers. You can call or email me so that we both can get a more realistic idea of your needs.
