fruffenach Posted March 5, 2012 Share Posted March 5, 2012 Can anyone help me out with understanding the order you need to do things when applying for a trademark? My business hasn't been officially created yet (I'm still struggling with the LLC vs Scorp path), Do I need to be concerned with the business name as far as the trademark goes? Have you guys trademarked your business name as well as your products name? I have a name in mind for a brand I would like to use and want to claim it. I am confused about the part where the rules say it has to be in use. How can I do that if the spirit isn't being sold yet. Any suggestions on how to get around this? say coming soon on a web site? inclusion on a prospectus for investment?... I obviously don't want to go to far if I am going to have a conflict with anyone so at what point to you come up with the picture part of it? Meaning, do I go head and have someone work with me on creating an image for it even though its not official. I was thinking about using designcrowd to come up with something. I'm not sure if I will do this myself with something like legalzoom or go through an attorney yet. Since I plan on focusing on bourbon, does anyone see an issue with going through an attorney who handles a lot of the trademark work for a lot of the large bourbon distilleries here in KY. I am going to be small and don't want to have to deal with issues from the big distilleries. I am thinking any conflicts could be avoided this way.
