Does a bill of sale have to be notarized to be legal if it is a domain name or trade name?

Asked almost 3 years ago - New Orleans, LA

I am looking to buy the domain name and possibly the trade name of a business. Does it need to be notarized in the State of Louisiana, to be a legal transaction?

    However, if you are going to register or file the domain or trade name with any outside agency (U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, etc.), you may want to check and see what they require.
