I run a business and currently have a pretty standard name; Letter Photography. Typed into google this query sends me all the necessary traffic, but it also sends my competition traffic. Seeing how there is no protection on the terms 'Letter Photography' it makes it easy for competition to use it as their keywords as well as their title to help steal some of my potential customers.
I'm here looking for some well advised advice on what to do. I'd like to trademark "Letter Photography" to keep other businesses from using the term. For example, I'd like to make it so I'm the only company that can use the term "Letter Photography", other companies would then be forced to rephrase their terms to something such as "Letter art Photography". If this scenario is possible, how do I do it?
Once trademarked, can I contact other companies and let them know they are in violation of a TM law and need to rephrase their terms?
The TM/© business is all very new to me so any help would be appreciated.
