why ip
Why IP?
  • IP is a form of property which is intangible yet often quite valuable
  • The “value capture” comes through leveraging IP in partnerships, joint ventures, research collaborations, licenses, and the like
utility patent
What?- process- machine- product- composition of matter (includes software)

Patentability- novel- useful- non-obvious

Exclusive right – not an affirmative one!

Term- 20 years from filing

Challenges – must file within one year of public use, offer for sale, sale, or publication; enters public domain after expiration of patent

Variations- plant patent (asexual reproduction)- design patent (ornamental - 14 years)

(Utility) Patent
copyright
Original works of expression fixed in a tangible form, including literary, musical, pictorial, graphic, sculptural, and audiovisual works (includes software)

Right to reproduce, make derivative works, publicly distribute, perform, and display work

Registration – not necessary but useful

Term – life of author + 70 years or if “work for hire,” shorter of 95 years from publication or 100 years from creation

But… only protects expression, not ideas; does not limit independent creation

Variation - mask works

Copyright
trademark service mark
Any mark (e.g., word, group of words, logo) that identifies the source of goods or services from those of another when used in commerce

Owner can prevent others from using confusingly similar marks

Common law rights – federal and state registrations available

If registered on a federal basis, term can be extended forever

“Use it or lose it”

Avoid your mark becoming generic!

Trademark/Service Mark
trade secret
Data, formulas, patterns, compilations, programs, devices, methods, lists of actual or potential customers/suppliers that derive economic value from not being generally known or readily ascertainable

Enforcement based on proper safeguarding

Cannot be used to protect matter that can be readily observed or reverse engineered

Can be a valuable form of protection if relationships are managed effectively
