Upgrad LLM

can a business have the city/language name as part of name?


Hey ppl!

I have plans to start a production label, where I ll be producing Media contents. I feel that having a touch of the Region/ Language in the Label name ll bring it more close to people.

 

I would like to know, If that legally acceptable? Is there any problem associated with this?

 

Example like...Tamilan Express, Chennai arts...etc etc...

Thanks!

Legally there should be no problem, provided the contents do not offend the label.

since the same shall be your trademark, you may have problems registering it with the registrar as it contains specific names of cities.

No Shraddha, I was wondering under which practice does media/ entertainment business falls?

Please correct me If I am wrong, I have heard that there are practices like, Intellectual Property, Real Estate, Taxation, Family law etc.

In the same way I wanted to know if there is any dedicated practice for the Media/ Entertainment business...
