One of the most common ways our law firm helps individuals is by correcting trademark filing errors. If not properly remedied, some of these errors have the potential to create problems for the mark holder. The United States Patent and Trademark Office has particularly complex laws regarding how trademarks should be filed. Due to these complicated laws, statistics for the first quarter of 2017 reveal that not every trademark is properly filed. In order to ensure that a trademark is properly filed, individuals who are interested in filing a trademark should consider retaining the assistance of a skilled attorney like the legal counsel at Whitcomb.
What does it take to win an intellectual property battle?
Apple, Inc. presents a host of interesting case studies for anyone involved in international business, particularly in the area of international intellectual property law. Anyone that’s read Walter Isaacson’s book on Steve Jobs or otherwise followed the company knows that Steve Jobs was passionate, if not fanatical, about the quality and presentation of Apple products. The look and feel of the products themselves, the packing, and eventually the Apple stores, were all designed with a level of detail arguably matched by no other company.
It is without a doubt that Tesla Motors Inc. has taken over the electric car market. Being the first fully electric spots car with an IPO that raised $226 million for the company when it launched its initial public offering on the NASDAQ, it is no surprise that CEO Elon Musk has set his sights on making Tesla a global brand. And what country has Musk decided to start his expansion? It would be none other than China. However, like Apple Inc., and a list of other global companies, expanding a company into China is not as easy as it seems especially with trademark trolls lurking in the background.
