How long does patent protection last?

Everything these days seems to come with an expiration date, and patents are no exception. If you have a new invention or new way of producing a product, you have good reason to protect it against theft. You certainly want to secure it if you want to monetize your idea or invention. Alternatively, you might want to obtain a patent to be sure no one else exploits your idea or invention to your detriment.

Many inventors in Minnesota and South Dakota who became successful did not have a detailed roadmap to follow. Also, they were not experienced entrepreneurs or wealthy investors.

If you believe you are the newest inventor of an idea or app that is going to take the world by storm, you should be willing to do what it takes to overcome any obstacles that may come your way during the invention and patent process

What types of official USPTO letters are there?

The government would not be government without paperwork. The United States Patent and Trademark Office is no exception. When an inventor initiates registering for a patent, the bureaucratic wheels begin turning. What follows can become complicated and time consuming. Specific actions are required at different points, often with deadlines attached, and failure to meet the conditions can be costly. An experienced attorney can help keep things on track.

Patent litigation issues to watch in 2018

A couple of significant cases of the past year and one that is expected to be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in the next several months highlight how the patent law legal landscape is ever in transition.

Youtube is becoming an increasingly popular way to share creative content. Uploading your video to Youtube can be a great way to gain an instant, large-scale audience and earn recognition.

However, there are a few things you should bear in mind when creating your Youtube video to avoid intellectual property infringement.

Constructing the proper IP license agreement

Licensing of any bit of intellectual property is not usually a matter of just drawing up a document and signing on the dotted line. Those with skill in this area of law know that coordinating across all the elements of IP law – patents, trademarks, and copyrights – requires special choreography. The presumption behind all these facets is that they deal with unique creative elements and any transaction undertaken to bundle things together is unique as well.

Don't risk losing your intellectual property rights by failing to act.
