Trademark Search & Clearance
Before adopting and promoting a new name, it is advisable a trademark search be conducted prior to using or applying to register a mark in order to ascertain whether the use of your mark is likely to infringe prior registered marks.
If you finds out yourself using another party's registered trademark, at least you can immediately stop using the trademark. Long and extensive use of the brand or trademark could be costly. You could have to change products, letterhead, business cards, and other promotional materials such as brochures, signs, advertisements, and your website. In the worst-case scenario, when you use someone else's registered trademark improperly, you could be held liable for money damages.
