Question: Will my company be charged with trademark infringement?
I’m currently starting up a company wherein I make comedic videos on the internet which I want to call “TheC.O.A.” Problem is, there’s a couple of other “COA”s that I don’t want to have issues with. Like the “Council of Accreditation”. So is there going to be an issue? I don’t know how different my name/company needs to be. TheC.O.A. stands for “The Company of Aviored” by the way.
Answer: Without more information, it is difficult to say whether you will have a problem of trademark infringement. However, if your services/goods are significantly different from the two others, then there would be much less of a likelihood of a problem.
