Legal Answers
283 Questions Answered

Q. The one word title for my intended novel is the same as a published U.S. 4 book series. Could I be infringing trademark?
A: I agree with the comments of my colleagues. Very likely you have an overlap between copyright and trademark. It is possible and happens a lot where books or movies share the same title, although they come from different sources and the contents are different. Consult with an attorney to understand your risks.
Q. If I wanted to publish a book and sell it with pictures of memes from the internet is there a copyright issue?
A: That is a very interesting question. It is very likely a minefield. You need to consult with an attorney for guidance and strategies to mitigate (can never bring to zero) your risk. Also consult with an insurance agency specializing in copyright coverage. They can make an assessment of your risk. Off from the bat I would say you have lots of risks.
Q. Is an international registered trademark in the USA enough to stop a trademark infringement outside the USA?
A: You definitely need to consult an attorney. There are no international registrations. You MUST register your trademark in each country or jurisdiction where you desire protection. In addition you must show use there. In this case is very valid for somebody to use your exact trademark in another country if you do not have protection there. How it impacts your business in the USA needs to be understood and there are tools you can use to mitigate that damage, but in general you need to pay to get the protection.
