Looking for site to search domain names

Is there a (free) site to search if a domain name has been taken?  I couldn't find the name I have in mind anywhere but I suppose there's a possiblity that someone owns it but hasn't used it.
 
Once I register a domain name, should I also get a trademark for the same name?  The site I have in mind will let people research a certain product in that there will be pictures and links to the vendors of this product as well as reviews.  I would also add a forum to the site.
 
Thank you for any advice.

Oh there's lots. One free site I use is iwhois.com. (not mine...)
 
If you aim to use the site in commerce and want as much protection as you
can get, having a trademark (more so filing an application that'll hopefully be
granted trademark status in the long run) won't hurt.

Thank you for the link.  The name is taken until spring, 2009.  But there is a .org available.  Must a product for sale have to end in .com?
