Legal Answers
67 Questions Answered

Q. Would a US Patent only cover my rights in the US or could I use a patent cooperation treaty with a US patent to further
A: A US patent is valid only in the US. You can use a PCT application, if you are still within the time limits, to file in other PCT countries. That requires a new application.
Q. I designed and started selling a product. Others are now copying and selling it too. Is it too late to file a patent?
A: You have a year from the date you first made, used, sold or offered to sell it.
Q. In a federal court if your business is LLC'd does that protect your personal assets? Do you need a separate attorney to
A: If the LLC is structured properly and the business is run in accordance with that structure, then yes. However, most lay business owners do not structure the LLC properly and do not run the business in a manner that allows the LLC to shield its owners from liability. You may schedule a free intro call on my website.
Q. Patent # 9,488,903 how do I know what I need to avoid replicating to reproduce a product similar to such stated in this
A: Look at the claims as defined by the detailed description.
Q. Hi. I'm from Ukrain and i want to registered my trade mark ASAP in USA. Tell me please the cost and terms, thank you.
A: I charge $250 for a trademark application.
Q. hey! i have a phrase that i think will go well on baby shirt, can i trademark it? and if yes, what is the process?
A: No. Trademarks are not for designs. They are indicias of the source. You'd find the trademark for a t-shirt on the inside of a collar or the end of a sleeve on a polo type shirt.
Q. Hi if a search returns no matching records even though it may contain some same words can I register that name?
A: No. Trademark availability is not associated with trademark registration. You should have a trademark attorney conduct a proper trademark search.
Q. pharmaceutical or medicinal
A: Nope.
Q. I made esports org called alleliteclan was wondering if I could use it if there’s a company called allelitewrestling
A: Maybe. You will need a trademarkability opinion.
