Ask an Attorney - How Do I Know if My Business’s Name is Trademarked?

A trademark is much like a brand name: it is what you want people to automatically think of when they think of the goods and services that you are selling. Trademark infringement is essentially when the mark that you are using is so closely related to other marks that the public may be confused about the source of the marks. The key factor used to determine whether there is trademark infringement is the similarity of the marks themselves and the similarity of the goods and services that they are being used to protect.
