    Trademark Basics

    in Legal

    Operators of businesses go to great lengths to protect their inventory, equipment and other physical assets.  However, many overlook a very important asset, leaving it vulnerable to theft.  A failure to protect this asset could cost the business much in profits.  The asset I am talking about is trademarks.  A trademark is any name, phrase, design or color that is used to identify the source of goods or services.  Owners of a trademark should take certain steps in order to maximize the value of their trademarks and to protect them from infringement.

    BUSINESS 101 - PART 4 - BUSINESS INSURANCE; COPYRIGHT AND TRADEMARK

    in Religion

    BUSINESS 101 - PART 4 

    BUSINESS INSURANCE 
    BUSINESS COPYRIGHT
    BUSINESS TRADEMARK 

    If your business is an LLC or a corporation, your personal assets are protected from business liabilities; however, neither business structure is a substitute for liability insurance, which covers your business from losses.


    Insurance coverage is available for every conceivable risk your business might face. Cost and amount of coverage of policies vary among insurers. You should discuss your specific business risks and the types of insurance available with your insurance agent or broker. Your agency can advise you on the exact types of insurance you should consider purchasing.


    Registering a trademark for a company name is pretty straightforward. Many businesses can file an application online in less than 90 minutes, without a lawyer’s help. The simplest way to register is on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s Web site,www.uspto.gov.
     


    What is copyright?


    Copyright is a form of protection grounded in the U.S. Constitution and granted by law for original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression. Copyright covers both published and unpublished works.


    What does copyright protect?


    Copyright, a form of intellectual property law, protects original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed.
