Well, it looks like someone else already has Varmint Patrol. My daughter went to "like" my page this evening and asked me, "Which one?" I said, "WHAT?!!" and she told me two showed up on her search. I logged in and, sure enough, there are two guys out in South Dakota who are offering a free service controlling people's varmints. They apparently set up their page on December 1, 2010. They've also already got www.varmintpatrol.com
as their website. I've got a MS Publisher file on my hard drive from October 26th with "Varmint Patrol" on the business card, but I didn't actually register the name at the county court house till December 15th after I received my certification from the state in November and decided to make things legal. What do I do now? Do I need to pick another name, or does it not matter since they're in SD (and apparently not a business) and I'm in NC with no plans to go national?
I was going to see if I could get five more likes to get to 25, but I'm not sure if there's any point to it now... They're listed as a product/service and I'm listed as a local business; does that make a difference??
BTW, I had done numerous searches, Google, etc., and the name never popped up in a search till tonight.
