Hello, I will be assisting you
You cannot copyright a short phrase like that. You would have to trademark it.
roughly, what would be the cost to trademark it? "54!"
the application itself is $275-$325 for one class of good/services
I understand, but this is merely a number, the number 54, is it possible to trademark a number.
Yes you can as long as you use the number as a brand for your products / services. For example, the number 13 is trademarked for a line of stapling machines.
To qualify for a trademark you need to already have products in interstate commerce or you will need to file an affidavit indicating your bona fide intent to have products in interstate commerce
ok, thanks for your help. good service.
thank you. Please rate my answer. Without it I do not get compensated for my work
