If I incorporate an LLC, and then someone federally registers a trademark with that name, would I be infringing on a trademark and have to change my name?
Or will they be unable to register the trademark if a company is using the name?
I ask because I keep hearing that I'm supposed to register the company before trademarking, but in my case, I think the trademark is more important. I still want to register the LLC first to make it the trademark owner, but I'm worried that someone will snag the trademark after I register the company. Will I still have protections if my LLC is registered and someone snags the trademark? Will I be able to use the trademarked name on products?
