Can anyone else use my DBA name after I register it?


DBA (Doing Business As) Filing Service


When a DBA name is registered it usually does not a reserve the name against future use by another business. The registration of a DBA name is simply for required public notice and financial purposes and does not ensure that the business registering the name has exclusive rights to own it or protected use it. To ensure exclusive rights to the use of a name, trademark registration is required.
