Intellectual Property Law, Patents and Trade Secrets

Intellectual Property Law, Patents and Trade Secrets

Part One

Intellectual property relates to the features that are not tangible for instance, patents, the trademarks, copyright and trade secrets. According to the law, those properties can be protected under federal and state law. From the chosen site concerning the American Bar Association and the section of the patent, the two relates to the rule of intellectual property. For instance in the case of the license, for someone to search copyright, the application or else in finding the patent Attorney, there is the need to apply the law of intellectual property since it secures all intangible assets. The rule of intellectual property needs the American Bar Association for its advancement and its improvement as well as their fair and just administration. The American Bar Association also helps in sharing of knowledge that is applied in the law of intellectual property and the practices such as the trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets. When dealing with the patent, I would ask a student to apply the law of intellectual property when they want to use to apply for a license as it will always give security. Concerning the American Bar Association, I will ask the student to read and know more about it for it add knowledge and skills which are mostly applied in the law of intellectual property.


Part Two

Under the law of the patent, non-obviousness refers to a requirement that is used to obtain the license. The elements of non-obviousness have to be met by an invention in case it will be viewed as a surprise development through the skills of someone with the help of the technology of a particular field. Non-obviousness is usually in many ways in the patent systems in a place where we use lines in between the sub-patentable and patentable innovation. Both the incentives and non-obviousness reflects the general profitability that is required to present in the laws of the patent in which invention should be adequately imaginative that is it should be kept to be performed ( Tan and David,p30). Under the rule of the license of the United state, there shall be no issuing of the copyright when the theme matter while a complete will not have to be there as usual during the invention time that is completed to the individual who is, making public skills within the painting of the subject matter pertains. While making the invention, patentability shall not be negative. The law of the contemporary patent has weakened non-obviousness requirements which lead to granting of many patents on the little inventions.

Under the law of patents, every co-owner of the jointly held patent has the ability of

Making, selling as well as licensing the patented invention. In the joint ownership, licensing is considered as a primary concern because every co-owner can grant non –exclusive licenses without obtaining the consent of other owners in the joint property. Joint patent ownership has the power to create messy conditions in which no patent owner can grant the licenses in excess or even stopping others from licensing the patent. There may be the diminishing of the value of the patent before the potential licensees; this is because of the ownership of the copyright begins with the inventors who are under the patent law of the United States. The challenge of the joint ownership of the IP occurs more frequently in the patent hence making it have multiple inventors. The steps of the joint ownership should be taken earlier when transferring the rights of the copyright of every co-inventor to an organization. It should be done through the writing down of the patent projects. Finally, there should be a fully signed copy of the task of the patent indicating that each application to be recorded using USPTO for providing the public with sufficient notice of the chain of the title.


Part Three

Trade secrets refer to the branch for intellectual assets rule which is used to address the defense for the information proprietary in opposition to the unlawful exercise of commercial through others. The examples of the trade secrets that should be protected include The formula for the soft drinks, the strategies of marketing, a computer algorithm, the techniques of manufacturing, the new invention which has not yet been filed by the patent and the method of a survey that is used by the professional pollster. On the other side, the term` covenant not to complete’ refers to the clause that is under one party, for instance, one employees or one buyer of the land that agree not to get into the trade for competition against another party. The challenges that are likely to occur in the restrictive agreement are that there will be the chances of leaving the liability for compliance that has the restrictions with the original land of the owner. As a result, it will create doubt for the owner of the property. The only way to solve this is only by writing an agreement concerning the details of the land. Also, there will be no competition with another party which will result in selling of the property at a lower price.
