Q. Can others use our company name if we are trademarked?
A: It depends on what you mean by "trademarked." If you have a federal registration, this provides the greatest amount of protection, and usually covers the entire US (unless there is a prior user out there). A state trademark provides the next best protection and it also provides protection for goods/services that are not federally legal (such as marijuana trademarks). Common law protection that arises from being the first user in the U.S. usually means that a later user or registrant cannot stop you from what you have been doing all along, but you may not be able to stop them if they have obtained a federal registration and have been operating throughout the U.S. for several years. As noted by others, it is imperative to have a trademark lawyer with experience analyze all of the facts in your particular situation to answer this question. ... Read More
