Items on the checklist include tips on running a self-help trademark search, how operating across state lines affects eligibility, and whether an attorney can help expedite the process.
"Registering a trademark can help a business protect its name and its brand," explains Natalie Remien, founder of Remien Law, "but there are many questions that need to be answered before a business applies for a protected trademark. The checklist is design to help companies start the evaluation process that can help determine whether a registered trademark is a practical and feasible option for them."
There are numerous factors that a company should consider when selecting a trademark. One of the first factors is whether a similar name or mark is already in use. Companies should also check for domain name availability for leading top level domains, such as .com, .net or .org. Additionally, businesses that do not offer products or services outside across state lines may not be eligible for federal trademark protection. Businesses who have questions about their brand and the protection available to them can contact the firm for additional details.
