Legal Answers
43 Questions Answered

Q. Is the patent on the locking system or the way it fixes to the support bar? Or on the actual design of the bag?
A: Patent infringement requires careful analysis of the claims in a given patent read in light of the specification with the device you’re trying to compare it. You need to consult with a patent attorney for your case. Also check to see the dates of the patent you’re referring to to make sure the patent has not fallen in the public domain
Q. There was a show in the 70’s of people dancing. How can I go about using a piece of the show for a music video?
A: The safest way to approach this is to locate the owners of the video and request permission or license the content for use.
Q. I sell rustic wood pallets. If someone tells me to carve the dallas cowboys logo on one is it copyright infringing?
A: Since you're selling these for profits and not using them for personal use, you might get into trouble for trademark and possibly copyright infringement without the appropriate licenses and permissions from the trademark owner.
Q. Walt in a domain name?
A: Is it just Walt in the domain name? Is there more to it? I recommend doing a search to make sure the trademark or variations of the mark are not owned by someone else in your field and related fields.
Q. Are there any patents on the Self Leveling Centre cap made by rolls royce
A: You can try to search for patents assigned to a certain company through the USPTO database.
Q. Hi, we have an issue with out trade mark Serial# 85434702. Cancelled by mistake. We need assistance to reinstate.
A: Since you have not filed your declaration in time, you will have to file a new trademark application.
Q. Can I name a my business with a trademarked name in it? For example “Taste the Rainbow Smoothies”
A: if the trademarked mark is in the same class (goods/services) or related class, then you should stay clear from that mark. That being said, there are a few factors that the USPTO and courts consider when deciding whether there is likelihood of confusion with another mark. If you're just starting, pick a mark that is not used by anyone else so you can grow it into a solid protectable brand. A trademark attorney can help you do a proper clearance search and guide you with the next steps.
Q. If we want to trademark "Feel Good Skin Care," is Aveeno Feel Good Skin too close to be able to get a trademark?
A: it depends on the classes they're using the mark for and the ones you're planning on using the mark for. If it's for the same goods/services and they've been using the mark longer, then it would be an issue. You should consult a trademark attorney.
Q. Question re: intellectual property (software, trademarks), closing a CA LLC partnership, and marital property and debt.
A: you need a business attorney and possibly a family lawyer as well.
