Morning everyone! You can pop your questions here and we'll get through to them at the end :)
Contact Michael here: firstname.lastname@example.org
what happens if a similar business sets up after you and then sends you a cease and desist letter?
what are the marketing or PR benefits to having a trademark?
how long does it take to get a trademark approved?
Get the domain names before launch - to make sure they are available, and block anyone else holding you to ransom!
indeed steve, and get any similar ones too. I have .org .net and have used .com but that was bought by a different company and im not using them now so cant get the .com
I always get the Ltd company too - £12
always? how many haveyo got lol?
is .org only associated to NGO type ?
its largely for non profits janet
Only in theory. Main ones .co.o.uk and .com
so not a problem if a ltd uses .org ( to the eyes of investors ?)
im not an expert but I don't think so
no, but others are vital too
i have known a few brands that have had this happen and they lost the fight so had to rebrand
even though they wee the ones who started first and had evidence to prove this
could you elaborate the 'design right' furhter
apparently Amazon went after the Amazon Fish Farm (and lost)
how do you find out the hosting provider though?
tell us about the rest of you work
why can i get no win no fee services if i have a claim for court but i have to pay a lawyer upfron to help me get my business started when I have no money at the beginning?
Indeed - and normal hourly rates lawyers, could also offer fixed fees which works out better for the client.
thanks, very useful
Thank you Jordan and Michael. It was a great Seminar
