A: You may be able to use the name Golden Ticket for a transportation company or "golden ticket" in your business name. The complete answer to your question depends on use of that name, or names that would be confusingly similar, in the same trade channels.

Currently, there are 39 marks listed (dead and live) in the Trademark Office and containing the term "golden ticket" for various uses. As such, the name Golden Ticket or use of "golden ticket" in the name, may be available for a transportation company.

Before starting a company it is best to engage an intellectual property (IP) attorney to complete a comprehensive clearance search for you to determine if use of the name is permissible. It is best to do this before expending resources on branding.
