Your New Business (Startup) Needs A Business
Launching a startup requires a trademark lawyer before you even start your business. Picking the name of your business/service/product is more than a matter of thinking of something memorable and creative. You need to make sure that the name you choose is something you can protect.
Avoid getting too attached to the first name you like, there is a good chance you’ll have to change it later on. Tech giant Apple is a good example of why you should take trademark laws seriously since they are constantly dealing with legal disputes over trademark issues-- The iPad trademark infringement case in China cost them $60 million.
Do not do any of the following before speaking with a trademark attorney:
- Decide on a business/service/product name;
- Pay for marketing and advertising;
- Seek out media services for your business/service/product;
- Spend any more money on promoting your business/service/product.
Why shouldn’t I register by myself?:
Because your time is valuable and hiring a trademark firm greatly increases your chances of getting a registration.
Aside from the fact that you need to acquaint yourself with the entire process and make sure you learn enough to be certain you’re doing it properly, the likelihood of your trademark application getting accepted increases by 50% if you are represented by lawyer.
There are different kinds of trademarks to choose from and the registration process for each one varies in difficulty. Save yourself some time and have an expert on trademark laws help you with trademark matters so you can focus on growing your business.
What’s the worse that could happen?:
Litigation of trademark disputes. Going back to the Apple example above, if you compare the costs of the services of a trademark attorney with the cost of a trademark dispute or the costs that come if you are forced to stop using your brand-name after years of cultivating trust and value through marketing and advertising efforts, the obvious choice becomes to work with a trademark attorney at the outset to minimize costs and risks.
Trademark laws are complex and overlooked. The initial costs of the services of a trademark attorney are cheap compared the costs of dealing with trademark issues. The more valuable your company or brand, the more expensive your trademark issues could potentially become. Once your choice for a startup business lawyer is set in stone you can begin working together and decide on plans to grow and expand the operation.
