When starting a new business, you probably want to check service or trademarks, which often is a way that organizations protect their brand, at the USPTO site.

Here's a link to a directory of all 50 states' Secretary of State sites, where one incorporates.

So my friend was wondering how to do a business name search, do you know how? He wants to start his own business but wants to make sure it's not taken before he moves on with it. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears.

Google, for one. Each state's incorporation sites. You should check with your local SBDC for assistance.

I have been thrilled with the business name search results. I want to start my own business, and this is the way to do it.
