Business owners are often excited about their new company. But before you invest in designing logos, printing business cards, or buying domain names you will want to make sure there is not a strong likelihood your selected name is going to infringe on another company's name.
You can do this a few different ways: 1) Search on Google using “____” around the name and other, similar name combinations; 2) Search on the United States Patent and Trademark Office website; and 3) Search the Ohio Secretary of State’s website under business name. This will give you a better idea of what is already in existence.
The best practice is to file a Federal Trademark to provide the highest level of protection to your business.
