My LLC is for real estate acquisitions and development. The new company I want to put 'under' my LLC is not. It would deal with broadcasting and a pilot tv program. How can I add this 2nd company under my LLC and will it have the same legal protection as the 'parent company?' Also, regarding the trademark & copyright. The name of the broadcast would have a name and the pilot would (obviously) be about something. Do I trademark the name of the broadcast and copyright the pilot/programming idea? Visa-versa?
Please advise as I do not want neither my broadcast name nor pilot idea 'stolen' or duplicated once I start presenting it to networks.
