Orlando, FL asked in Trademark for Florida

Q: Can I legally call my company name Jedi Roofers LLC?

Can I legally call my company name Jedi Roofers LLC? I wasnt sure exactly how copywrite works in this regard. Since I am using Roofers LLC could I legally use Jedi? I see that its in the Webster dictionary defines Jedi as: person who shows extraordinary skill or expertise in a specified field or endeavor. which I would assume is considered a common word?

A: This is a trademark question regarding brand names, not copyright, which protects works of expression.

Lucasfilm has registered JEDI as a trademark for various goods and services, but a quick search of USPTO records shows that no application has been made for JEDI used for roofing services.

You should consult a qualified trademark attorney to get a definitive opinion and to apply for registration of the proposed mark.
