Money decisions are almost always a matter of priorities. I don`t personally know anybody on this list. Yet I say, "You have the money to hire a lawyer." You may think your trademark is not that important to the success of your business - and may be right, though I doubt that.
If your car suddenly burst into flames or one of your teeth suddenly shattered in your mouth, you would get the $2,000 if you had to - some way some how - because you think it is important enough to be able to drive and eat. You have the money or access to it. We all do.
I tried to trademark my brand and boy did I loose money! I fall under #2 ( and would be very angry to see someone copying it) but I might be even more hot if the person who has a variation of the name I wanted never does anything with it. At least now I know noone else can legally use it.
