There were two video games subtitled "It's About Time" in the 2010s decade, Electronic Arts' Plants vs. Zombies 2 upon its initial release in 2013, and Null Reference Games LLC's Cars with Guns: It's About Time in 2017, yet Activision was able to file a registration... View More
Regardless of what marks were in use, Activision was able to register this because no one else registered this mark for video games. If another party used a similar mark for video games before them, and that other party is still using that mark for video games, they could file a cancellation...View More

We are creating a fake application for our marketing class. With their help we are creating the idea and presenting it. We all contributed to the final idea. If I create the application and go public with it, could I face legal backlash from them for not including them in the company?
It depends on the terms of your agreement with the other members of the group. If you had a written agreement or contract that specifies each person's rights and responsibilities in regard to the creation and ownership of the company, then you would need to adhere to those terms. If there was...View More
Although titles of works are not copyrighted, the characters and other elements of the book may be, so steer clear of infringing them. The other consideration is whether the title -- even if not subject to copyright -- may be registered as a trademark. You should consult an experienced...View More

Novel compounds were isolated, characterized and elucidated from a traditional herbal medicinal product that had been in use for centuries by folk medicine practitioners. Is it possible to file a patent on this?
This is a very difficult to answer just based on the information you have provided. I advice you to seek qualified patent attorney in your region/city so he can guide you through the whole process and discuss you with your options.
The process to get possession is not as simple and quick as you like----however, if you are serious about this, I recommend that at a minimum, you consult with a property or real estate lawyer in your area--pay him for a consultation----and ask the questions you have and get the information you...View More
Wants to revoke saying the witnesses were not present. Her attorney wants us to sign a stipulation saying we agree it’s not valid. We don’t want to sign because this doc has cost us thousands of dollars and would like recourse. We do have a court date...question is can we not sign and let... View More
If you have a court date, then a lawsuit has been filed. You indicate that "...this doc has costs us thousands of dollars and would like recourse." You need to immediately consult with an attorney or 2, and then hopefully hire one to represent you. Good luck.
Patent term is more confusing than it should be. The one part that is simple, is that patent term is not a function of the technology. There is not a way for the applicant to apply to extend the patent term (unlike trademarks or copyrights). (but as noted below, there are...View More
Which resulted in two break in,which the property manager confessed to providing a master key to a guest not leasing with the complex on a police report,can the property manager be held responsible as well as an accessory for my home being broken into for a second time
It would be a bad idea for me to guess what led to the abandonment and what response you filed. It would be a good idea for you to contact the USPTO help desk as they can look into the electronic file and let you know the next step.

I received a message from someone on Facebook regarding some cosmetic brushes that I customize in my free time and that I have sold to a few people.

Short answer: maybe. Long answer: it probably depends on how clear the evidence is that you were actually an author on the subject work. Have any of the other authors (or anyone generally involved in the development/project) claimed that you did not make any creative contribution to the final work...View More

My dad died in 2000 and my grandmother died in 2012, both died intestate. I'm an adult and I'm can't prove paternity, because my dad's name is not on my birth certificate. Is there anything else I can do? Am i legally an heir?
There are other possible ways to prove you are an heir. A DNA test comparing your DNA to one of your dad's siblings might work. Also, witnesses could testify to facts that would suggest he was your father. Did he ever say he was, or act like he was? You would have a better case with a birth...View More
