Intellectual Property Legal Questions and Answers

Intellectual Property

Joint Agreement

California

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

Can a JV hold patents?

I am currently exploring the possibility of forming a joint venture (JV) with another company in my industry. As part of our business plan, we are considering the development of new products and technologies that may be patentable. However, I am unsure if a JV has the legal capacity to hold patents and protect our intellectual property rights. Therefore, I would like to seek advice from a lawyer on this matter.

Jane D.

Answered Apr 14, 2023

As a legal entity, a joint venture (JV) can own a patent. Given the temporary nature of JVs and the fact that there will be multiple owners of any patents, there is a complex mix of intellectual property (IP) ownership rights, dispute resolution, and enforcement issues that need to be agreed upon in order to properly protect everyone's intellectual property rights. Consideration will need to be given to what IP ownership and rights will look like during and after the JV and it may be easier to have both companies listed as the patent authors for inventions from the outset (versus naming the JV as the author). A joint IP agreement is the best solution to outline the rights of each party, the process for developing patentable technologies sufficient to be a patent author, filing and prosecuting patents, and future licensing and exploitation of the patent.

Asset Purchase Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Oct 11, 2023

How are intellectual properties handled in an asset purchase agreement?

I am looking to purchase a business that includes intellectual property and I want to ensure that it is properly handled in the asset purchase agreement. I am concerned that the intellectual property may not be properly transferred to me in the agreement and I want to make sure that the agreement is legally binding and that I will be the rightful owner of the intellectual property after the purchase.

N'kia N.

Answered Oct 17, 2023

Although not necessarily required, the parties to an asset purchase agreement oftentimes find that it is in their best interests to work with a knowledgeable intellectual property attorney. The attorney can negotiate and draft the parts of the agreement that pertain specifically to intellectual property. The attorney can also assist with the parts of the agreement that do not appear to affect intellectual property but have the potential to. If you are considering an asset purchase agreement that involves intellectual property, you should also consider hiring an intellectual property attorney.

Trademark Application

New York

Asked on Jun 20, 2024

Can I trademark a phrase that includes a common word?

I am in the process of starting a small business selling handmade jewelry, and I have come up with a catchy phrase that I want to use as my brand name. However, the phrase includes a word that is commonly used in the industry. I am unsure if I can successfully trademark this phrase, as I have heard that trademarks cannot be registered for generic or descriptive terms. I would like to know if it is possible to trademark this phrase and what steps I need to take to ensure the best chance of success in the trademark application process.

Damien B.

Answered Jun 21, 2024

Hello! This is Attorney Damien Bosco. My law office is in Forest Hills, Queens County, New York City. My practice covers the New York City metropolitan area and Long Island. In some situations, I also handle matters throughout New York State. If your phrase contains common jewelry terms, registering it may be challenging. One suggestion is to check the USPTO Database for similar trademarks. If other businesses have brands using the same common word in their brand name, that could give an indication that you may still be able to use it in your brand name. Nonexclusive use means that the word or phrase can be used by other parties and is not solely owned or controlled by the trademark holder. Consult with a trademark attorney for guidance on the registration process and the viability of your chosen phrase.

What are the fees for starting a nonprofit in North Carolina

I have been operating a ministry for helping prisoners that are released by way of podcast, but now we are growing and want to provide hygiene and other assistance for them as well. I have ran into issues with people wanting to donate but I am not operating as a nonprofit at this time. I am trying to accomplish this so I won't have to keep paying out of my pocket for the expenses.

Holly T.

Answered Jun 17, 2022

You can look to NCnonprofits.org for basic info, but you are a growing content creator. You need help planning growth, content, releases and waivers, sponsorships and a trademark if you intend to grow this Podcast. TLCtrademarks loves advising content creators.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
