I'm not too familiar on trademark laws, but how to you ensure a bigger fish will not come and steal  your company name? (Is trade marking neccescary?) Even after securing your domain...

I'm trying to help my older neighbor start her online business, she knits BEAUTIFUL ITEMS!!!!! I offered to start her up a small investment because I feel like the world needs to see her work.

I would head over to the local SBA and ask them on all of that for starters.

I have an online business. I used to have two of them. You can trademark the name, but it is not necessary of you want to start an Internet business. You should register your trade name with the state where you live, though, and get a Tax ID number to establish your business and build credit.

What Tokyo said.  Trademark just to be safe.  She just might blow up then folks are gonna come along and want to copy.  If she's not trademarked her name and the image she has built with that name can be taken. Trade mark to be safe...her name and her company name IMO.

Facebook and Pinterest would be excellent places to get her work seen.
