Important information before submitting a patent application

If you are an entrepreneur in a field in which you are likely to develop truly unique and new products, you will want to understand how you can protect your inventions from being stolen or reproduced illegally. Many other California individuals and companies face this issue every day. There are a variety of types of intellectual property protections available and it is important for you to know which is appropriate to your situation.

U.S. and Taiwan companies come to agreement

For California companies across many sectors, the need to protect their intellectual property can be of paramount importance in today's competitive global marketplace. The disclosure of sensitive information to the wrong parties can provide advantages to competitors in illegal ways. It is essential that businesses track their patents, trademarks, copyrights and other secret information carefully so that they are able to support a claim of IP violation if such an event ever happens.

Fair use and copyright law

California residents who have copyrighted work may think it has protection against all other use that the owner does not give permission for. However, copyright laws allow others to use copyrighted material in certain situations, and this is known as fair use.

Startup wins IP battle against major brand

California is the home to many major global brands but is also the hotbed of innovation. Across a variety of industries, there is no shortage of businesses and ventures being started by eager entrepreneurs and scientists. Many of these smaller companies face challenges when trying to compete with their respective industries' leaders and some end up being bought out by larger competitors.
