Intellectual Property Legal Questions and Answers

Intellectual Property

Independent Contractor Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Nov 10, 2023

How to address IP rights in contractor agreements?

I am an entrepreneur who has recently started a business and is looking to hire independent contractors to help with my operations. I want to make sure that I have a clear understanding of the Intellectual Property rights associated with this agreement, so that I can ensure that any IP created by the contractors is legally protected.

N'kia N.

Answered Nov 14, 2023

A business has multiple options for protecting its intellectual property when working with an independent contractor. For a few examples: 1. A "work made for hire" agreement or clause can establish that the business is the owner of intellectual property that the independent contractor creates. 2. A confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement or clause can require the independent contractor to maintain the confidentiality (and limit or prohibit the independent contractor's disclosure) of the business' confidential or proprietary information. This can include the business' trade secrets (one type of intellectual property), as well as other information that might not rise to the level of trade secrets. 3. A non-competition agreement or clause can prohibit the independent contractor from using, or allowing someone else to use, the business' intellectual property to compete with the business. An independent contractor agreement with intellectual property considerations could implicate various federal and state-specific laws. A knowledgeable North Carolina attorney should be able to help you with an independent contractor agreement that complies with all the applicable laws. To ensure that you have a clear understanding of the intellectual property rights associated with your independent contractor agreement, you should consult with a knowledgeable attorney.

Trademark Application

North Carolina

Asked on May 12, 2022

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.

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.

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.

Intellectual Property

Trademark

Massachusetts

Asked on Oct 22, 2021

Can I trademark the name of my software?

Can I trademark the name of my software if the same name is already trademarked in a different country/state? I am starting up a FinTech company right now and I am trying to trademark the name of my mobile app; however, after some searching, I realized that a company in the UK has already trademarked the same name. It is also a company that makes a mobile app in the FinTech industry - just in a different area of interest. Are there any suggestions for how I would go about trademarking the name of my software, or do I have to come up with a different name?

Roman V.

Answered Nov 2, 2021

Yes, it's generally possible to trademark the name of your software, as long as it is not a generic name or descriptive of the product. You should also do a clearance search to make sure no other company is using the same or similar name for similar services. I would be glad to discuss more details and help with the trademark process. Thanks.

Contracts Counsel was incredibly helpful and easy to use. I submitted a project for a lawyer's help within a day I had received over 6 proposals from qualified lawyers. I submitted a bid that works best for my business and we went forward with the project.

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.
