    I'm about to register my business but the name I want to use is trademarked in a different state. Am I still allowed to use the name or do I have to make a few changes in the name? I can't say the name but it's a perfect fit and catchy, any help???

    I am thinking the fact nobody will touch this one is a heavy clue. :rolleyes:

    It's finally official. I'm now the Greater Portland Lawn Barber. These last few days of rain finally gave me a chance to take the time and do it. I'm waiting for my insurance company to call back with the final price and I'll be registered and insured hopefully by the end of the day. Now I just need to save money for next spring when the government legally robs me.
