We are looking to start a small business that would deal

We are looking to start a small business that would deal with old defunct breweries and their images. This would be an apparel company. A lot of these old breweries were short lived and probably family owned. My question is, can we file trademarks and use these images as we see fit without repercussion? Do we have to copyright the images as well and lastly, does owning the trademark give us ownership of the images.

A Trademark Copyright question! Is there a way to 'legally

A Trademark Copyright question! Is there a way to 'legally protect' a 'concept' for a business that is being developed? It involves a website that will be launched with a business entity (non-profit) that will have a particular unusual approach to communication, but right now it's a ' concept' and not an actual ' product' yet. I know that's a bit vague... sorry!! Let me know if it needs to be more specific.

If my company is registered as an LLC in my state, for this

If my company is registered as an LLC in my state, for this question let's just call it "My Company, LLC", can I still get a national TM on the name? Does getting a national TM on the name affect my limited liability as owner of the company? Would I TM the name as "My Company", or would I need to include the LLC title, "My Company, LLC"?

I made an educational video and used different images from the internet, and I would like to know about the permission requirements. I am not selling the video and it is free to view, but I am putting it on a website which promotes my consulting services. Some of the images are product images from a company website, one from an online magazine, one from a governmental website, and another from a nonprofit health website. Do I need permission to use an image in each of these situations.If permission is required, in what way does image attribution need to be done. Do sources need to be listed in the actual video, or could they be in the "info" part below the video on youtube or part of the email used to distribute a link to the video.Thank you.

I run an Etsy shop and I made & sell doll clothes for ******

Hello! I run an Etsy shop and I made & sell doll clothes for ****** & *********** Doll clothes. I have been notified by Etsy Legal that I have been sited for trademark infringement by ***************. My question: Is editing these listings with the trademark symbol enough, or do I need to make other changes to make these listings 'legal'? I may have other similar questions; I was notified by Etsy for a similar issue two years ago by another company, and after making the changes I thought would suffice but receiving other notifications, I deleted these listings for fear of having my shop shut down). Thank you so much!
