Recommended business structure and how to protect name and logo?

challenges

(Karen Koch) #1

I have a community of 415 people we have been meeting for two years. The community members voted and we have a name and we designed a logo.
What sort of business structure is a community? Non-profit? S-corp?

How do I protect my name and logo?

Some questions:

  • Who do you want to protect it against?
  • What are the goals of the community?
  • Is there a particular place the community tends to be rooted in?

In the United States the moment it is created and fixed in a tangible form gives you a Copyright. Registering it makes it easier for you to protect it.
