Legal Answers
596 Questions Answered
Q. If an inventor signs over all rights to his invention to a corporation, Is the corporation required to have an attorney
A: Not simply "an attorney". It must be a patent attorney (or a patent agent). Make sure that you are looking at patent attorneys only.
Q. Where do i go to discuss what i need for a US Patent.
A: There are many places on the internet (such as reddit) where you can discuss the patenting process, and the advantage/disadvantage of getting a patent for your business. You do not need to worry about what you need to get for a patent. That will be the job of your patent attorney. What you should worry about is: will the patent help you get where you want to go? Will a patent make sense to your business? That is a business decision that you need to resolve. To find out if it makes sense to get a patent, you should read the trade publications of your industry, or similar websites.
Q. RetailMeNot suing Honey for patent infringements.
A: It is possible for someone to start up another coupon site. You just have to be outside of the scope of the claims. In this particular case, the four patents have very long independent claims, suggesting that one should be able to work around these claims. If you are trying to start an online business then you need to get an atty to make sure that you do not infringe on these patents or any other ones. You may or may not be able to patent it and keep others from doing the same. This will be particularly helpful if your business takes off, and you are planning to eventually sell your business and its IP to a large company. But getting your own patents is a secondary concern. Your primary concern is to make sure that you are able to provide services to your clients. Good luck!
