I've been messing around on google trying to figure out how much it would cost to trademark a new business name, but when it directs me to the page of fees, there are about 1000 options. Has anybody had experience trademarking a name before, and if so, about how much did it cost you? Thanks for the help. I've seen anywhere from $199-$499.
Dude, google is your friend. There is a patents/trademark page where you can register the name yourself. If I recall correctly, it's about $300 give or take. It's not a big deal. You apply, send your fee and wait to hear for approval. Find the page. Get to work.
Good luck with your venture.
