I recently started my own cleaning company and was subcontracting for another company. We decided not to work with them anymore.

Is small claims court the answer?
What is required if I want to rent out my houseboat for a few weeks out of the year? I'm wondering if I have to turn in taxes on money I will make from renting out my houseboat. Also, what kind of insurance will I have to get, and do I have to have a business license for such a small operation?

I have a business in Ohio and it has recently come to my attention that there is a business operating under the same name but has not officially registered the name. I would like this company to seize and desist operation under my registered business name or I am willing to sell the business and name to that company. However I have not trademarked the name. My goal is simply to understand any legal considerations in requiring this other business to halt operating under the name or if I choose to sell, do I need to trademark the name as well?
