A: It depends on several factors, including whether the company has trademarked the name "Ten Back" or a similar name. If the company has a trademark on the name or a similar name, then using it without permission could be considered trademark infringement. It's also important to consider whether using the name "Ten Back" could create confusion for consumers and potentially harm the other company's brand. If you're unsure, it's best to consult with an intellectual property attorney for guidance.
