What to do if someone has the same company name as another company in a different country!!
So, a friend of mine who stays in India incorporated a company with a NAME that he thought was original when he first came up with it.
However, one day he was surfing through Facebook just to see if such a name is already in use or not!
Surprisingly it appeared that a company in the Philippines and the US already uses the name and is in the same industry. Luckily they seem to be quite small businesses.
Is he still allowed to use the name?
If yes what are the ways to capture that name so that nobody in the future uses it?
