Patent law and your intellectual property rights

As a Texas inventor, you might think that coming up with the idea was the easy part by the time you address all of the initial legal issues surrounding your invention. While either your patent is pending or you receive your patent, it would be nice to believe that you are done with the legalities. However, patent law outlines additional steps that need to be taken in order to safeguard your intellectual property rights.

NCAA Opposes Trademark Filed by the Big Ten Conference

The National Collegiate Athletic Association ("NCAA") has had a lot of legal press in the last few years. From the controversies over whether student athletes should be paid, to the likenesses of student athletes no longer being used in video games such as the now-defunct NCAA Football series, the NCAA is no stranger to legal proceedings. One of the NCAA's most notable trademarks is "March Madness," referring to the annual Division 1 basketball tournament culminating in the crowning of a national champion.

Head to Head - Patent Dispute Between Helmet Manufacturers

It has been a week and a half since the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, but that does not mean that football will be leaving the news anytime soon. The offseason always brings a renewed discussion of policy issues in football, and in recent years this has meant a focus on head trauma and concussions. While the potential damage to players (understandably) is the focus of the discussion, one area that fails to get the same headlines is the technology driving the equipment used by the players.

Patent law issues are taking the fun out of making toys

Many Texas families purchase some sort of ride-on vehicle for their children. If Dynacraft BSC, Inc., manufactured one of those vehicles, it might be the subject of a current lawsuit filed by Fisher-Price and Mattel, Inc., which is the toy manufacturer's parent company. Fisher-Price is asserting its patent law rights by alleging that Dynacraft infringed on four of its patents.

Adidas Opposing Tesla's 3-Stripe Trademark Registration

When I got dressed this morning, I put on a pair of jeans and a gray Adidas polo. On my way to class, I saw a couple of Tesla cars. At no point did I think I was putting on a Tesla shirt or passing an Adidas car. However, Adidas apparently thinks that the logo for Tesla's Model 3 sedan is "confusingly similar" to Adidas's three stripes mark.
