Do I need to do a copyright or trademark check when naming my product?

Yes it would be a smart idea to run a trademark search (copyright only applies to original works, not names). The last thing you want to find in your mailbox is a cease and desist order. When conducting a search for existing trademarks, keep in mind the standard that the USPTO and courts use – the likelihood of confusion standard. In essence, if a consumer would be confused as to the source of your product then there’s a good chance for an infringement.
