Legal Tip: If I own the URL, do I still need to Trademark?
If you’ve been listening to Legally Enlightened podcast, then you know that my whole goal is to help you learn about the law with micro-content that’s 20-minutes or less.
I know you’re crazy-busy building your business, so I wanted to create new episodes going forward that are even SHORTER!
Yes, even SHORTER! – with super-quick, easily-digestible bites of legal info so you can listen on the run, in the car, or when making your kids’ morning smoothies.
I want to give you even smaller “Legal Love Tips” – quick little legal tips – to give you snippets of info including frequently asked questions that I get asked all the time.
So here’s a question I get asked a lot:
If I own the URL, do I still need to Trademark?
What are we talking about here?
We’re talking about whether if you own the URL – the domain name – to your website or program sales page, is that enough for you to actually “own” the name? Or, do you still need to trademark it?
I don’t want you to experience the pain of someone copying the name you created, so this is an important question to know the answer to.
In this episode you’ll learn:
- What it means to own a URL vs. a trademarked brand name
- Why business owners purchase URLs with multiple endings
- When you should consider trademarking your brand
- Why Lisa aligns trademarking with the crown chakra
- Action steps to consider if you think you need to file for a Trademark
This super quick episode doesn’t have a tip sheet to download. It’s just an easy answer to a frequently asked question to have at your fingertips (and earbuds!)
