Re: Can Businesses in Two Different States Have the Same Name and Product
if the other halal guys don't mind, yes.
If you do not serve the same geographical area, you would likely be able to use it but that doesn't mean they won't attempt to get you to stop and even sue you if they believe you are infringing upon their name.
and when I say: serve the same geographical area, I don't mean simply that you are not in NYC do you do not serve the same geographical area. If you are close enough so that customers of NYC halal guys would come across your restaurant in their normal activities, you are within the NYC halal guys territory.
how about halal hal's?
