Re: "Doing Business As"

This is right from my license agreement. Pretty cut and dry, I think. I don't use CrossFit of the Ozarks for anything legal other than in my waiver. All my legal mumbo jumbo is through my LLC which is another name and has nothing to do with CF.

(a) Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, during the Term,
CrossFit grants to Affiliate and Affiliate accepts a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, nontransferable,
non-assignable, non-delegable, and non-sublicenseable license to use the
CrossFit name, trademarks, trade names, service marks or logos designated in writing by
CrossFit (“Licensed Marks”) solely for the following purposes (“Licensed Uses”):
(i) as an element of one CrossFit-approved affiliate name, to wit: CrossFit of
the Ozarks ; provided, however, that Affiliate shall only use the Licensed Marks
as an element of a marketing or “doing business as” name and shall not use the
Licensed Marks in whole or as part of the formal or registered name for a
partnership, corporation, limited liability company, sole proprietorship or other
legal entity;

Re: "Doing Business As"

One's DBA name is the actual CrossFit name you registered with HQ on. Example: Joe Schmoe, LLC. dba CrossFit Schmoe.

Then if Joe Schmoe wants to open a Schmoe burger stand, he'd do Joe Schmoe, LLC. dba Schmoe Burger.

As long as your dba names dont infringe on others, you'll be gravy.

Re: "Doing Business As"

That was great info! Does anyone know the cost associated with setting up an LLC in the state of California for tax year 2011?

Cheers!
