Starting my own buisness this year and looking forward to making money doing what I`ve been doing for free. My company`s first product IS the "next big thing" and should be public by the end of Summer, 2008. My company will distribute inovative, helpfull products with a tendancy toward Eco-friendly and "made in USA"....
Thanks, I think I can handle that. I`ve also picked up some good info. from an older thread here. I wish I had the time to read all the threads here then I might not be so unnecessarily cautious and nervous about my new product. Even though it is the next "BIG IDEA"....... Uh Oh, that`s not an infringement is it???
I`m trying to figure this out. As I understand the Trademark rules you must have a product offered for comercial sales before you can qualify to apply for a Trademark. How can you protect a very catchy name for a product if you need to sell it first. I have an invention that I wish to sell on a website and the domain name is the product name.( I already own the domain) I want to "launch" the website with the product for sale but by the time a Trademark gets issued there could potentially be damage done to the product name from some other use. What am I missing here???
