    Hi everyone,
    hoping you can help. Im in the construction industry and just recently noticed a business in a different state has started to use my exact business name. Was completly shocked at the audacity and disappointing to see but here we are.
    I havent contacted them yet as i want to weigh up my options and put myself in a strong position.
    Some facts:
    My name is registered with asic, theirs is not.
    My abn shows my business name trading since 2014, they are not registered.

    Can i resolve this situation based purelp on this or do I have to take more actions to protect myself, i.e. register my name as a trademark?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Is the other business also in the same field or industry?
