Intellectual Property Legal Questions and Answers

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
