We Celebrate New Patents and Trademarks – Be aware of Invention Marketing Companies

Dec 11, 2023

If you are reading this, you may be thinking of hiring a patent or trademark attorney. You’ve come to the right place. We celebrate our clients’ new patents and trademarks. Since we last wrote, Gerald received his 8th patent. Senthil got his first design patent, for a graphical user interface. Design patents are is a great alternative to protect software for clients not a candidate for a utility patent or copyright. Hats off to Ed for his first design patent. Congratulations to Greg for his first trademark, for his music recording studio. Dana and Jill are on track to receive their first trademarks. We successfully expunged a defective trademark to clear the way for Leslie to trademark her destination restaurant and grill. Many others are in the pipeline.

The more patents we prosecute, the more our clients hear from invention marketing companies. ‘Tis the season for patent scams, too, apparently. Because patents are public documents, inventor contact information is technically, too. These companies regularly skim the Patent Office database for new inventor contact information. They love-bomb unsuspecting independent inventors promising lucrative licensing deals for their amazing products. Be aware of these companies. Do you know those signs in the airport that warn you that anyone who approaches you for a ride shouldn’t be offering you one?

If you receive an unsolicited letter like this, visit the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office and call your attorney. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is! I want my clients to make money, too. I draft, review and negotiate licensing agreements all the time. I will always listen to you and represent your best interests. I can introduce you to legitimate product development, manufacturing and distribution professionals.

Wishing all of you a happy and healthy winter holiday season. If there is no snow where you live, there’s always an Instant Snowman!

Instant Snowman!

Make your own snowman – no snow required!
