Safeguard Your Brand
Whether you are an artist, management company, or any business, everything you do goes towards building a brand name. If you do not protect that name, everything you have worked to create can go to waste.
Have you come up with an AMAZING name for your band only to find out that it is so amazing that another group is using it? If they have not made it to the big leagues, can you still try to use it? The answer is…..it depends. Like so many questions in law if you change the facts, you change the answer. There is a lot of information that needs to be uncovered before such questions can resolved (like who started using the name first, in what region have they used the name, are you both in the same genre, etc…), but here is some food for thought in the realm of trademarks:
What is a trademark? Technically speaking, a trademark is a word, phrase, logo or other graphic symbol used by a manufacturer or seller to distinguish its product or products from those of others.
What is a servicemark? It is a name, phrase, or other device used to identify and distinguish the services of a certain provider. Basically, servicemarks identify and afford protection to intangible things such as services.
In effect, the trademark or service mark is the commercial substitute for one’s signature. There are different descriptors for marks, arbitrary trademark, certification trademark, collective trademark, descriptive trademark, fanciful trademark, etc. It’s important to understand your mark and get legal advice from a licensed professional attorney who appreciates your concerns and can explain legal jargon in an easy to manage way.
