Legal Answers
31 Questions Answered

Q. 10 years ago I sold the patent rights to a U.S. corp. Can I now re-assert my ownership rights to the patent overseas?
A: you need to examine your assignment agreement -- most likely, you assigned all the rights so you cannot re-assert your ownership rights unless you execute another assignment transferring the rights back to you
Q. How can I contact the assignee or inventor of a patent?
A: First you need to check if the patent has been assigned or not. If the patent has not been assigned, then you can contact the inventors listed on that patent. If the patent has been assigned, you should contact the assignee only because inventor(s) don't have legal rights in this patent anymore. Both, the inventors information and assignment information is available at the USPTO web site.
Q. I own the registered trademark #78284503 Fairway Franks. Someone is selling a domain with that name. Legal or not?
A: it would be illegal if the owner of that domain uses it in connection with products/services similar to those in connection with which you registered your trademark; selling a domain with that name is not illegal per se
