Can I keep my name
In Trademark Ownership - updated on 5/15/2013
I have been using a name since 2004 that was trademarked in 2008 by someone else from across the country. Yesterday, I received a certified letter from that person stating that I must change my name to something else. He wrote the letter himself and I am wondering if since I had the name long before it was trademarked, if I am grandfathered in and do not have to go to the time and expense of changing, much less having to rebrand ourselves.
