How important is it to choose an original domain name?

Like anyone with a new start-up, you probably understand the important role a website domain plays in your business. If your website garners a great deal of attention, you may stand a chance of expanding your business beyond Manhattan and reaching customers across the country. One step in creating an unforgettable website is the business name you come up with, as well as your domain name and company logo. However, during the course of your business development you should realize the potential legal liabilities of choosing a domain name or trademark that is too similar to another’s, or has other characteristics that may cause your company to be confused for an already established business.

Factors surrounding property condemnation

There are many reasons you might have a real estate contract dispute with a tenant or property owner in New York, ranging from destruction of property to non-payment of rent and beyond. You might also end up in litigation with the state or federal government over real estate that you own. The attorneys at Cox Padmore Skolnik & Shakarchy LLP realize that it is sometimes inevitable for homes or apartment buildings to be condemned by the city or state. However, you should know that you, too, have a voice in these matters.

Trademarks are an excellent way to protect a company's logo or brand. Companies in New York can register trademarks to prevent competitors or other entities from illegally using their name or logo to promote their own agenda. Further, as a recent case involving Tiffany & Co. illustrates, taking the right measures will ensure that when a dispute arises, the law will side with the trademark.
