    Hi,

    I am about to start selling on Amazon and have a good product and good designs and feel ready to go but am getting confused over uniqueness of brand name. For arguments sake I am calling my company ABC.
    I have found a company in New Zealand selling the same product called "ABC ABC" (so my name repeated twice) and also another company selling on Amazon with my exact name "ABC" however they are selling an entirely different product. Does this mean that this is a no-go for me and I will need to think of another one?

    If i register a trademark does that just stop someone else using my exact design of a logo or the actual name itself?

    Just to be clear this is just a brand name, not a company name.

    Many thanks for your help,

    Regards
    Tom

    You need to contact a specialist solicitor for these types of questions as you need the correct answers and I don't think there's anyone legally qualified to answer those on the forum at the moment.
