Can someone explain to me how trademarking works? I am starting a company with some friends and we are trying to come up with a name. When we look up a name to see if it is trademarked at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office site, we see numerous trademarks for the same name. How can this be? Can a name be trademarked by more than one company?
