Is there a way to protect your trade name nationwide without registering it in every state ?
As you may know, one can successfully register a domain name with only a slight difference from one already registered. For instance, I can register john-doe.com even if johndoe.com is already registered. I could also register johndoes.com. Is this true with corporations and trademarks ?
