Planning on starting your own business? One of the first things that you should do is select a trademark.
A trademark can be anything from a logo, to a picture or even a sound that people will associate with your brand and the goods and services that you provide. A solid trademark gets you noticed and is one of the first steps in placing your business above the rest. Now while that may seem simple enough, oftentimes people will run into trouble when selecting and registering a trademark because they haven't done thorough research and someone has already beaten them to the punch.
