Do I get common law rights through the creation of a business page on Trademarkia?

No, you get common law rights through use of a mark in interstate commerce. You must actually sell or market your goods or services in interstate commerce to demonstrate use of your business name or logo.Trademarkia merely creates a business web page for your business on Trademarkia. You must actually sell or market your goods or services in interstate commerce to demonstrate use of your business name or logo. In otherwords, you must be using the mark in the sale or transport of goods or the rendering of services in “interstate” commerce between more than one state or U.S. territory, or in commerce between the U.S. and another country. For goods, the mark must appear on the goods (e.g., tags or labels), the container for the goods, or displays associated with the goods. For services, the mark must be used in the sale or advertising of the services. Merely creating a business page on Trademarkia is not a use in commerce.
