I am the current owner of a delivery/moving business. I have been incorporated for 8 years now in Lawrence Ks. I bought the business from the man who bought it from the original owner over 10 years ago. After a stint in prison this individual has decided to start his old business again. I have a website and I advertise in every phone book but more importantly my business is know around town for quality. Can I make him change his company name?
You should hire an attorney that specializes in Intellectual Property law, specifically with experience in the Trademark / Trade Dress area. If you have the exclusive right, in your market, to use that trade name / trade mark / trade dress, someone else in your market should not rightfully be able to use it. This absolutely is something about which you should speak to a trademark attorney.
