How do I know if a book title is taken?
If you want to see if a title has been trademarked, you can use TESS, the online search at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Then you can start the trademark process. You may be able to copyright your work yourself, but it’s better to have an intellectual property attorney to help you with a trademark application.
Do I need a lawyer to file a trademark?
When you’re looking at registering a trademark for your business, you might not be too clear on whether you should do it yourself, hire a lawyer or use a trademarks attorney. We recommend that you use a trademarks attorney, or if you decide to use a solicitor, make sure that they have IP and or trademark experience.
Do I need a trademark if I have an LLC?
If you have already incorporated or formed an LLC for your business, you should register your trademark under the umbrella of the corporation or LLC. While the process of registering a trademark is more involved than registering a DBA, rights to your name will be enforced by both federal and state governments.
