Can I Trademark a Stage Name?
Yes, you can trademark a stage name.
Yes, you can trademark a stage name that you use to promote or sell your products or services. Trademarking your stage name will aid you in creating a reputation and allow the fans of your performances to ensure that they are actually supporting you and not an imitator. If a stage name is trademarked then it will prevent another individual from performing similar services under the same name.
If you are using a particular name to identify your music and performances to consumers then you should not have great difficulty securing a trademark for that name so long as there are no existing trademarks for that name. It is important to check existing trademarks to ensure that there is not already a claim on the name. If you attempt to register a trademark for a name that is already claimed then your application will be denied, and your application fee will not be recoverable.
