A: Before you make a shirt and website using any name you should have an IP attorney conduct a clearance search to inform you of the availability of the trademark. The clearance search will locate trademarks that may be problematic for you. It is best to have a clearance search conducted before you invest time and money into the branding, otherwise, you run the risk of being required to rebrand to avoid infringing the trademark of another.
