Thanks and I searched, nothing was returned for the name I have in mind for the business. Should I consider making my intended name a trademark? or is it bit too much at this stage?

Hi gardiye

Make sure you check that someone else hasn’t registered the same name as a Trademark. If someone owns the same, or confusingly similar name – for the same/similar goods or services as you, as a trademark – they have rights to it and using/promoting it as your business name could infringe those rights.

You can do basic searches at http://pericles.ipaustralia.gov.au/atmoss/falcon.application_start

Make sure you search on any/all combinations of the name, and different spellings etc.

Let me know if you have any questions/concerns and we can assist.
