Fully agree with what you write.
But doesn't the research you describe anyway form a part of the process to set up a business nowadays?

At the moment, it is possible to set up a company in the UK without investigating whether any relevant domain names or trade marks are owned by a another party (so the research described isn't a prescribed part of the process to set up a business in the UK), but it is certainly good practice to do so.
