Our business cards all have two names: me as the Business Manager and my wife as Executive Pastry Chef. We also have an unpaid intern as an Associate Pastry Chef.
1. Has anyone copyrighted or trademarked their logo or website? I would love some advice on this.
You don't need to do anything special to copyright your original creative works, they are automatically covered. You only need to register with the copyright office if you are going to file a suit. I looked into trademarking our logo, but after weighing the hassle and expense of a trademark application and the cost of defending the trademark against the possible benefits (some protection against the unlikely event of a business stealing our identity) I decided to pass.
If I were coming out with a line of packaged goods that would be sold nationwide the trademark protection might be worthwhile, but for limited sales in a local market the ROI just didn't cut it.
