  1. I see you don’t monetize your site, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn extra bucks every month because you’ve got high quality content.

  2. So, basically, all I’d have to do is come up with a unique name that is not used and use it for IngramSparks? No registering or paying required?

  3. Yes, unique and that is more of a legal matter. People like Bowker and IngramSpark don’t cross reference or monitor this.

  4. Doing a web search is the place most people start when checking on a business name. While a general search can let you know if there are other similar business names, there are some more detailed searches you should also perform.

  5. Thanks so much for this wealth of knowledge and information. I now know my next step. Find a unique name for my business name.

  6. I want to know more about Imprint name and a brand name. And what if i do publish in public domain with a brand name?… when making notebooks we need to add some name either on cover page or spine. Do i really need to file for trademark protection if i start making notebooks or ebooks?..
