Recent copyright law claim against Billy Joel not about music

Billy Joel is best known for his music. Over the years, he earned the nickname, the "Piano Man," and has worked in the industry for decades. For this reason, hearing that someone filed a copyright law claim against him may cause California residents to believe it has something to do with music, but not this time.

Patent law claims seem to plague the technology industry

The technological advances of the last couple of decades have revolutionized the way people here in California and across the country live. Many of the companies who bring people the technology they rely on use similar platforms and components. For this reason, the industry seems to see numerous patent law claims.

Protecting a trademark through intellectual property litigation

Like companies across the country, many California companies rightly take the time and steps needed to protect their trademarks. The problem is that the more popular a particular trademark is, the more possibilities there are for someone to infringe on it. Intellectual property litigation may be needed in order to stop someone from using it without permission, particularly when cease and desist letters are not working.

Patent law news: Companies accuse each other of infringement

California smartphone users may not realize the amount of technology that goes into being able to turn the screen on their phones from vertical to horizontal. They may also not realize the amount of money involved in that technology as it relates to patent law. The current dispute between Eko, an interactive video company, and Quibi, a short-form mobile video streaming company, illustrates how important the ownership of this technology could be.

Cybersecurity measures may be needed to protect trade secrets

The popularity of teleworking is growing at an exponential rate right now. Lots of California residents are taking advantage of this option, but they may need access to sensitive information from their companies in order to work. This means that trade secrets could end up vulnerable without some protections. Taking cybersecurity measures could help provide much needed protections.
