Default Re: copyright vs. trademark for company name

I can say that before just throwing up our hands and buying the equipment we looked for over a year to purchase a screen printing or similar business and found some great companies with piss-poor execution and no trademarks or copyrights even though they had some good products and names and were there first.

If you think you have something, or even if you don't, trademark it, copyright it, claim it, and do whatever you have to to make sure when you are rich and famous you can sue the bejesus out of anyone that tries to make money off of your name or idea.
