How To Do a Trademark Search (By a USPTO Patent Attorney)

August 18, 2020 1:02 pm

Do you want to hear about how to make money selling patents? Here is your complete guide! (More FREE resources below...)⏬

Registered USPTO patent attorney, J.D. Houvener from Bold Patents Law Firm, share's how to sell your patent!

Below we have provided resources and timestamps with brief explanations for each step of how to sell your patent.

Quickly find what you are looking for by clicking on the timestamps below. 

Timestamps for important areas of this video are located below along with a detailed blog article that I wrote that goes into this topic even more in-depth.

➡️  0:34  STEP 1: Identification of the Parties

✔️ When you are looking to negotiate a sale of a patent you have to know who you're dealing with.
✔️ A company has many moving parts, and you are going to want to know who has the right to make, use, sell, or import the invention.
✔️ It's important to consider the party's intentions. Your contract has to clarify who is giving up what.

➡️ 1:55 What rights do you have once you acquire the patent? 

✔️ In the contract, you want to specify "Look at exhibit A" with the Patent Publication Number
✔️ Each party needs to inspect and confirm the scopes of the claims that you specified in your agreement. 
✔️ The following are the scopes of the claims: patent publication number, serial numbers, and dates that are associated with the conveyance
✔️ The actual rights are not going to be listed in the contract at all. 

➡️ 2:55 STEP 2: Purchase 

✔️ Prior or existing licenses might exist from Party A [seller]. That needs to be checked and cleared with Party B [buyer].
✔️ If party B is going to be a non-exclusive licensee that needs to be cleared upfront. That means they are not going to be the only one that gets to make use or sell the invention.

➡️ 4:14 STEP 3: Price

✔️ Patents can be sold in terms of a lump sum, (received upfront) and received over time. 
✔️ Contingency payments are when you receive money via royalty if and when a product is sold.
✔️  If it's about the revenue you have to be more specific; I.e. gross revenue, or net revenue.
✔️  Gross revenue is easy to calculate, net is more specific.

➡️ 5:29 STEP 4: Recordation at USPTO

✔️  Recording the assignment helps to publish the information that that any other competitor that may need to look at this later in litigation can have the record preserved. 
✔️  It's also useful for making sure that deals get done and its a clear and transparent transaction.

Divisional Patent Application

June 9, 2020 3:59 pm

What are some simple steps to protect your idea?  Here is your complete guide! (FREE resources included below...)

Registered USPTO patent attorney, J.D. Houvener from Bold Patents Law Firm, explains how to file a design patent application!

Below we have provided resources and timestamps with brief explanations for each step of how to file a design patent application.

Quickly find what you are looking for by clicking on the timestamps below. 

➡️ 1:29 How Do you file first? What steps go into filing a patent application?

✔️ First you need to have an invention, and it needs to be patentable. 
✔️ Do a worldwide patentability search. (Link below) 
✔️ You have a one year grace period to file a patent application for an invention before your rights are completely gone, if you start selling it on the market. 
✔️ Inventorship: You have to make sure you own the invention. If your job is closely related to your job, you have to take a look at your employer agreement and make sure your employer doesn’t own the invention. 
✔️ You want to determine the eligibility of your idea. Is it patentable? You got to be able to show if there is an inventive step, something truly novel about your invention. 

➡️ 4:35 Patentability search consists of two main aspects. 
✔️Patent documents are patents that have been filed for and published 
✔️Non-patent literature, do a natural language search to see if there is someone similar to your idea.

➡️7:24 Patent office actions
✔️When your patent gets submitted to the patent office, the examiner will do their own search and confirm or deny the search that was done before that ensures the patent is original. 

➡️8:01 Monetization 
Seek to enforce your patent rights.
Licensing the rights to your patent to other companies to sell.

✔️ Do a worldwide patentability search. (Link below)
✔️ You have a one year grace period to file a patent application for an invention before your rights are completely gone, if you start selling it on the market.
✔️ Inventorship: You have to make sure you own the invention. If your job is closely related to your job, you have to take a look at your employer agreement and make sure your employer doesn’t own the invention.

➡️ 4:35 Patentability search consists of two main aspects.
✔️Patent documents are patents that have been filed for and published
✔️Non-patent literature, do a natural language search to see if there is someone similar to your idea.

How to Protect Your Idea (everything you need to know)

February 25, 2020 10:56 am

How long do trademarks last? What about patents, copyrights, and trade secrets? Here is your complete guide! (FREE resources included below...)

Registered USPTO patent attorney, J.D. Houvener from Bold Patents Law Firm, explains how long patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets last!

Below we have provided resources and timestamps with brief explanations for each step of how to file a design patent application.

Quickly find what you are looking for by clicking on the timestamps below.

➡️ 0:41 Patents 

✔️ Patents protect utility and design inventions.
✔️ Utility & plant patents protect the invention for 20 years from the date of filing.
✔️ Design patents protect the design for 15 years from the date of filing.

➡️ 1:30 Trademarks 

✔️ Trademarks are brands like Nike, Nordstrom.
✔️ They last as long as the company does!

➡️ 2:42 Copyrights

✔️Copyrights protect an artist. 
✔️ The only requirement for a copyright, is that it has to be fixed in a tangible means meaning you have to record it (song, artwork, book, film). 
✔️ Prima facie evidence is when you register a copyright, which allows you to have proof that you were the copyright owner. 
✔️ Duration for a copyright is 70 years plus the life of the author. 

➡️ 4:20 Trade Secrets

✔️ Much like trademarks, trade secrets last as long as the company does. The only requirement is that it has to remain a secret. 
✔️ In order to have a trade secret, three things have to be true: 
Not known by the general public
You have to be making efforts to keep it a secret
It must be economically valuable to a competitor 

➡️ 5:58 Image and likeness

✔️Most important for famous individuals who don’t want people to commercialize their image.
✔️ Examples include Michael Jordan’s slam dunk logo, and Colonel Sanders’ face.
✔️ They last as long as the life of the individual.
