Hi rocknbil. I'm not even going for trademark right now, just trying to register llc at state level. But your reply makes me think a bit more.
My company is "widegets blue", the other company is just "widgets" so to speak. We both do the same thing, except the other is way more established.
I've actually been working on another name. No reference to it out there anywhere whatsoever. The only problem: my old name was like "strong widgets". The new name, while elegant, is more like pretty soft widgets with wings. It's emasculating, but it's original and the new logo is looking super cool. It will change the way I do business though.
I may check out another lawyer. I only called one. Thanks!
