How long do you think it will take you to get your business off the ground? More than likely, you will spend a significant amount of time getting your name out to your customer base. Once people know who you are, you will need some trademark protection in order to remain identifiable to those you provide goods or services to, whether just here in the Houston area or elsewhere.
Many Texas business owners understand and value their intellectual property and take steps to protect it. This may include trademarks, patents and more. At present, a trademark registration or application may not be as protected as one of those business owners hopes due to a scam discovered recently.
Some small business owners might think that trademarks are only an important issue for large companies. However, it can be critical for business owners, whatever the size of their company, to give careful thought and consideration to the issue of trademarks. This is because effective use of trademarks could help with a variety of key business goals for companies big and small.
