109 Questions Answered
Q. How much does a trademark usually costs?
A: Hello, the answer to your question depends various other circumstances such as in which country you are seeking trademark protection, if you are willing to use the lawyer services or not, if you are going to do preliminary trademark search and so on. I advice you to contact IP lawyer and provide her/him with more details so the price calculation can be made.
Q. Can I run my own virtual boutique firm while working for another law firm?
A: In most jurisdiction there is a law that says that this would be considered as a a breach of non-competition with your employer. You must therefore find a pertinent laws in your country which states what are the restrictions for your profession. Also you need to check out your employment contract as there can be a non-compete clause included. Finaly you should consider discussing this with your employer, as he will most probably find out that you have this virtual firm anyway.
Q. I just received a patent infringement strike on Amazon. Can you help me?
A: Well the outcome of this may differ depending on various different circumstances you have not provided.

Qualified IP lawyer needs to check out and examine claims of the opponent and also your IP.

After that you can either negotiate licence terms with opponent or you can withdraw your listing and a few other options depending on the whole situation.

I recommend you to seek a local IP attorney to advice you more on this.
