Question: I'm trying to start my own record label/company, someone help?
I'm trying to get a understand how to setup my record label. I was looking at Wikipedia.org definition of “Record label” it stated “A record label is a brand and a trademark associated with the marketing of music recordings and music videos.”
So what Wikipedia just told me, I have to get a logo (brand), trademark it, and place my logo out there to get attention, right? So a record label isn't a real company basically!
Answer: I would agree that a record label is driven by its brand, as opposed to the services/products it sells. But it can still be a company.
To market a brand, it is not a requirement that you have a logo. You might successfully market your label by just a name (as opposed to a logo design).
Both a name and a logo can be trademarked.
