Q. Hello I need help confirming a business name that I’ve “registered” and someone is possibly challenging this name
A: I agree that it isn't exactly clear what you are asking. You can search the Florida Department of State, Division of Corporations website for lots of information, such as: Name of Company - http://search.sunbiz.org/Inquiry/CorporationSearch/ByName Fictitious Name Registration - http://dos.sunbiz.org/ficinam.html Name of Trademark - http://search.sunbiz.org/Inquiry/CorporationSearch/ByTrademark Trademarks can also be registered at the Federal level. You can search the Federal database, here - https://www.uspto.gov/trademarks-application-process/search-trademark-database. To be clear, just because you have "registered" a name or filed a fictitious name registration does NOT mean that you can use that name with no consequences. If, for example, I registered the fictitious name or tried to incorporate as the "Ford Automobile Company" there is a very good chance that the good folks at Ford Motor Company would be able to get my filings invalidated as too confusingly similar to their already existing and in use name. This can get complicated. What if my name is "Ford"? You really should talk to an attorney so they can get the full scope of what has happened and what you want. The consequences of not doing so could be lots of wasted time and money when you have to change your company's name or defend a trademark infringement lawsuit. Best of luck.
Q. How does one join this class-action lawsuit?
A: This is a brand new case that was just filed last week. There is no settlement, no judgement, nothing to claim at this point. Class action cases take time, often 2-5 years from the time they are filed until they are resolved. And there is no guarantee that the case will be successful, or that it will result in recoveries anywhere near the $5,000 per person that are being reported in the media. It is likely that lots of other cases will be filed and eventually they will consolidated or coordinated in one large proceeding. The court overseeing it will appoint attorneys to represent all of the potential class members. They will then file an amended complaint. You do not need to do anything at this point, unless you want to retain your own lawyer and consider filing your own case. Then you can use directories like Justia to search for class action lawyers. Best of luck.
