I know YANAL, but I'm just fishing for some general information. I will likely hire an attorney at some point.
We have a new product, let's call it MyGizmo.
We intend to trademark "MyGizmo" (in the US). It appears to be available after a search on the USPTO site. So, given that we do that:
1. We have the domain name MyGizmo.net (MyGizmo.com was not available, someone is just sitting on it, no pun intended). Should we trademark "MyGizmo.net" and even "MyGizmo.com"
2. Ignoring patent issues, could someone trademark something like "My-Gizmo" and start manufactuing a similar product?
