Hey,

I had a question about my business name in comparison to a few others I found. Basically, my company is a clothing / apparel company and the name I based it around is being used by a some other companies in a similar niche. I was wondering if I could still legally use mine as I am 1) in an entirely different country than the 2-3 others and 2) have a differentiated name. Basically the companies that exist are like XYZ Clothing Co, XYZ Hoops, etc. They are clothing companies themselves but each have different suffixes, etc all while using the same base name. So, if I were to use say XYZ Apparel, would that be a possibility? I searched trademarks, etc and I didn't even find any for the other companies.

Thanks
