Under U.S. copyright law, game mechanics and rules are generally not copyrightable; however, the specific expression of those rules (such as in a rulebook) or any associated artwork may be. If you substantially reimagine the game, including its rules and appearance, your version could be considered... View More

If you acquired all the assets, that would include both tangible and intangible assets such as copyrights and trademarks. The purchase agreement should make it clear what was transferred. The company may have registered the copyrights, in which case you need to record assignments of the copyright... View More

This application and another to register OKLAHOMIE (with map) were opposed by The Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma twice (in 2019 and 2020) which owns several registration for OKLAHOMA.

A new application to register OKLAHOMIE would most certainly be similarly opposed.

There isn't enough information here to fully answer your question.

You can file a provisional patent application and say patent pending for a year but that may not be a long-term fix. In order for the patent process to be valuable to you, you need to get claims in a non-provisional application through the examination process. You will need to show that what you... View More

Q: A cork maker owns their trademark in wine, but not for household goods, which I want for a corkscrew. Can I trademark?

They mostly do chemical processes and do NOT own the trademark in household goods, but I'm assuming perhaps they make corks for wine bottles.

I thought I'd be safe trademarking in a class they don't have a trademark in, but since their product is literally cork and I'm... View More

There is really not a clear answer here. It is possible the other trademark owner may oppose your trademark registration or sue you for trademark infringement.

Q: IN CASES OF COPYING AND SELLING OF COPYRIGHTED MATERIALS DOES THE SUPRMACY CLAUSE APPLY
Terrence H Thorgaard
Terrence H Thorgaard
answered on Oct 8, 2015

Copyright protection is governed by federal law. The Supremacy Clause declares that federal law supersedes inconsistent state law. So yes, if there are state laws in the picture (although it is hard to imagine that being), they would probably be superseded by federal law.
