So if I named my business "Jim's Carpet Cleaning" some bonehead can sue me for already having that name? WTFOriginally, we were namd Tile Doctor. No one had it in PA. , but some cry baby down south had that name too for a totally different type of business. (and we had it first too ) He made a threat to take me to court over the name. We (and my lawyer) decided it was not worth the fight so it was changed to FloorCareMD to keep the medical theme to match our product names and service.
This time it is Trademarked..
PS we also expanded into commercial carpet cleaning so being forced to drop the Tile Doctor name was a positive thing.
