A few weeks ago, I filed a trademark application on behalf of a client. They have been in business a little over a year, and have seen phenomenal growth. They use their name for everything — from the name of their business, to their website url, to the name of their Facebook group, to the name of their signature product.
So, as I said, I filed the application for them.
Last week, they did a random search and found out another company filed an application for the same name, 6 days after they did.
If first in time is first in right, then they win the race. I’m sure we have more to do with the USPTO… but seriously people, 6 days is what is giving them real legal power.
Some of you are on the fence about trademarking something. Some of you are on the fence about spending the money on the legal guts of your business.
There will be no glory if you have no guts.
Being in business means busting your ass to do what you love. It means putting yourself out there, believing in your work and hustling like no one else. So why would you do all that and not cover your assets?
Yes, contracts and legal speak are boring.
Yes, terms and conditions are not sexy.
I completely agree that copyright language is a snoozefest for most people.
But frankly, what are you going to do if someone steals your ideas? Breaks a contract? Doesn’t pay you?
