Hi everyone, I noticed some clothes on eBay that were labelled as oilfield camo but were being sold by different people. I'm thinking about starting a small business but don't want to tread on any toes. I see that there is a company called Oilfield Camo, but it also seems like a style? I mean, the word 'oilfield' and the word 'camo' are relatively generic, right?
To give a bit of background, I'm a student and have got sick of my recent part-time jobs. The hourly rates are terrible, combined with no security or satisfaction at all. A few of my peers have side gigs where they freelance or make money on eBay, Amazon and similar. I plan to enter the oil and gas business later, and combining a side gig with something that matches my future career seems like a good idea. The only problem is that the industry looks like a hard place to break into as an entrepreneur.
So, is this a good side business for me to start? Will I get into trouble with trademarks or anything like that? Thanks in advance!
