Q. Small business question here, located in New Hampshire.
A: The answer to your question involves a bit more than name comparison. At least trade channels, zone of natural expansion, and use of the senior mark should also be considered. If you are starting a business, it is a good idea to engage an IP attorney to complete a clearance search for the name and logo you intend to use. Our firm handles these matters. Email me at rwilliams@devlinlawfirm.com if you'd like to discuss the process.
Q. I wanted to find out if my product was considered a patent infringement (is there a way to attach a picture?)
A: You will need to engage an IP attorney to prepare a freedom to operate analysis. My firm handles such matters. Please email me at rwilliams@devlinlawfirm.com if I can be of further assistance.
Q. Would use a name like 'Madhatter Custom PC Mods' for a business, YouTube channel or Social Media name infringe on Disney
A: If you'd like to use "Madhatter Custom PC Mods" for a PC modification business, this likely not an infringing use. Having an IP attorney complete a clearance search for the name being considered is best before you expend resources on commercial projects. Robyn T. Williams rwilliams@devlinlawfirm.com (929) 900-5014
Q. Is it possible to create an agreement that would give all IP rights produced by one company to another?
A: The answer to your question depends on the type of IP rights you are seeking to transfer. If you are talking about patents, you can do an assignment agreement for a group of patents/applications that will have to be recorded in the patent office for each patent/application. This agreement will cover past patents/applications. It is best to execute a new assignment for new patents/applications. You can have a form agreement drafted that you can use going forward. If the IP holding company intends to license its patents/applications, much care should be taken regarding which patents are transferred to the holding company and to whom it grants licenses. If you are seeking to transfer trademarks, you can draft and assignment agreement assigning all existing trademarks (enumerated) to your IP holding company. It is best to just file new trademark applications in the name of the IP holding company for future marks. If you are seeking to transfer copyrights, you can draft an assignment agreement assigning all copyrights and works to the IP holding company. Future copyright assignment may depend on the existence of other agreements such as licenses and/or work for hire agreements. This process can be very tedious and there are many factors to be considered in transferring a group of IP assets. I strongly recommend engaging an IP attorney to draft and file the agreements and create template agreements that you can use going forward.
Q. Can I use public domain images and audio (clipart/stock images) for a NonCommercial radio show advertisment?
A: You should not use images that are not licensed for commercial purposes. Although you do not make money from your show, the radio station is a commercial entity. If you want to use photos for show advertisements, I'd highly recommend purchasing the correct license. You don't want to be liable for willful copyright infringement.
