Scenario example only"

A registered business named Big Bin already exists.

If a 2nd business later register as Big Bins VIC, but just use Big Bin for advertising, would there be a legal issue? i.e. Could the original Big Bin business name holders sue?

Thanks

You would probably be blocked from registering such a name.
