Question: Trademark infringement

I have a name of a business that is already registered however, my business is a salon and the registered business sells wines and spirits. Would I be able to trademark the same name?

Answer: Whether there is infringement depends on whether there is a likelihood of confusion. The latter depends on the consideration of a number of factors, including the similarity in businesses.

However, differing businesses would weigh heavily in favor of no infringement.
