A brand name is of the most undervalued properties today despite not taking a physical or tangible form. Yet many companies get stuck early on or land in legal trouble because they weren’t using a trademarked name. One company hopes to alleviate those pain points for brands by helping them find a domain name that readily comes with a legal trademark to ensure they have full rights to it for the foreseeable future.
Communer is an online marketplace for a wide selection of trademarked domain names that give companies full assurance that whatever names they pick up are legally theirs to use for the long term. It’s also a marketplace for other intangible legal goods and services, including various legal documents and guides that will help protect a business’s interests and assure them of fast growth.
Not many startups think of the legal aspects of their business early on, assuming that it’s a “bridge they can cross once they get there.” But, unfortunately, many of these businesses have felt the sting of legal battles at a later junction, including trademark name issues that force them to rebrand at a later stage. These issues lead to lost momentum and slap a hefty price tag on their rights to continue the business. Others have even been forced to shut down.
But then there’s also the added issue of facing trademark application complexities. Applying for a trademark isn’t always the most straightforward procedure. According to Communer, there are multiple steps involved in registering a trademark. First, an application gets filed with all required paperwork to get the name in the registry, after which the US Patent and Trademark Office then examines the application and publishes it— a process that could last anywhere between twelve to eighteen months.
But now, legal services and trademark marketplace Communer offers a more feasible and seamless alternative. Buying pre-ready US trademarked names and domain names from a market. The online shop, one of the first of its kind, offers a wide selection of trademarks for sale for any business in any industry.
The idea first came to the company’s founder, Jeremy Peter Green Eche, after seeing the struggle many companies would face due to trademark issues. As a trademark attorney himself and the owner of the law firm, JPG Legal, Jeremy has had extensive experience successfully registering US trademarks. Over his career, he has helped register over 2,000 business names.
Communer uses a strict process of verifying all trademarks listed on its marketplace, confirming that they are fully registered with the USPTO for commercial use. The online shop currently has a network of trademark name owners ready to transfer ownership of trademarked names and domain names to the right buyer and at the best price available. To maintain strict legality and confidence, Commuter doesn’t just list any trademark on its website. It curates all submissions thoroughly to maintain the top quality of its trademark exchange platform.
All Communer trademarks listed for sale are correctly appraised to justify the price attached to each name. Jeremy hopes that this innovative route would help businesses get off the ground faster with complete assurance that they’re in the right the whole way.
