I was considering naming my business "laughinghaus" photography, however, I have found there is already a photographer with a website at "laughinghOusE". Is there any possibility that I'm going to run into some kind of legal trouble with this? He does a completely different kind of photography from me, if that's relevant.

Hi Jack. You can google this for more details--search for "likelihood of confusion" and DuPont Factors. That is what a court would refer to in order to make a determination of infringement (or not). The marks don't have to be identical to create an infringement situation. On the other hand, even if the marks are identical, it doesn't necessarily mean that one is infringing the other. I am a trademark attorney and can't give you legal advice on a forum. The answer would depend on your particular situation, as well as things like what your markets are geographically (again, see DuPont factors). The fact that it is a different form of photography is probably not going to be given a lot of weight, though. A great resource is the Nolo books, which are usually available at the library. Hope that helps.

SOLID advise. IP issues are quickly becoming one of the biggest risks for companies, especially small businessed, and the cost to sit down with an IP attorney is well worth the cost you're avoiding of potential litigation down the road (or, on the flip side, if someone steals your intellectual property and you need to protect your brand).

An infringement is a minor offense that involves breaking a rule or a law. ... An infringement can result in legal penalties if you're breaking a law, as in the case of a copyright infringement or a patent infringement. An infringement can also be a violation of a rule or an agreement that applies in a specific situation.

An encroachment is an infringement, a penetrate, or an unapproved act. Encroachment happens in different circumstances. A damage to one's privilege is an encroachment. An infringement of a resolution is likewise an encroachment.
