Overall, startups don’t understand how to protect and monetize intellectual property, which often leads to mistakes. What is Intellectual Property? The four main types are patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets. Intellectual property allows us to “own” the results of our creativity and our functions within systems.

Here are the worst intellectual property crimes committed by startups.

1. Waiting too long to file a patent application on your invention.

After you publicly disclose your invention, you have one year to file a United States patent application on that invention. If you allow this grace period without filing to expire, your disclosure is considered “prior art” and will be used against you in patent examination. This means that your invention cannot be patented because it is no longer new. (Novelty is a requirement of patentability.)

2. Not searching for prior art.

Is your invention really new? Without studying other similar products and patents, it is impossible to be sure. Filing a patent application without researching the prior art is a waste of time and money and may ultimately prevent you from obtaining patent protection.

3. Conducting a freedom of action search too late in the game.

A freedom to operate search is a type of patent search that assesses potential obstacles to putting an invention into practice. As AUTM President and Associate Vice President for Research, Innovation, and Economic Impact at the University of Kentucky, Ian McClure observes that startups make the mistake of only looking for patentability at first. . If you can get a patent, but you can’t commercialize your invention, what’s the point? This illustrates the tension between commercial and legal perspectives on intellectual property. (Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.)

4. Not knowing what can be protected.

Many people don’t realize that when it comes to bringing a new product to market, the devil is in the details. This is why patents covering manufacturing methods can be of great value. Startups need to think about how their inventions are going to be used today and in the future, as well as other applications of their technology.

5. End up with patent claims that do not match their business objectives.

Without claims that protect your point of difference, your patents will be worth nothing. They are not going to help your business.

6. Patenting inventions that no one wants.

In my opinion, this is one of the biggest mistakes. Avoid protecting inventions that are not marketable. Creating some type of market demand before filing a non-provisional patent application – which can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars – reduces risk.

7. Not giving enough valuable information to their patent attorneys and patent agents.

It is extremely important for startups to help their patent practitioner help them. Give them the technical details of your invention as well as your point of difference in the market. Share workarounds and variations of your invention, as well as manufacturing methods and materials. All of these add value to your patent application by establishing perceived ownership.

8. Filing too few patents or far too many patents.

During my panel at the IPWatchdog Patent Law Conference in Dallas, Texas last week, Efrat Kasznik – president of the Foresight Valuation Group and a lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business for more than 10 years – explained that founders procrastinate and don’t file in time, which means they don’t have enough IP to support their business or they have too many patents.

“Startups think patents are good. They take advice from outside counsel and spend too much money on bad filings,” she explained.

During the same panel, McClure offered an obvious solution for startups, which is to have someone on their board who knows IP strategy from a business perspective.

This person can guide you to deposit a transaction-ready IP. As your startup pivots, this person may also be able to help you monetize the non-core technologies you develop and patent, either through acquisition or through licensing.

One of the Assoc. Professor Agnes Callard’s earliest memories as a freshman at UChicago were attending the Purposes of Education Speech – in which a faculty member reflects on the purpose and definition of education with the College’s freshmen – and the lively discussions that followed in his residence hall.


So the famous philosophy scholar was “at the peak of excitement” when she was asked to deliver this year’s address, a revered tradition for College students since 1961.

“There’s something significant about this happening before your classes because it suggests your intellectual interests shouldn’t be limited to your classes,” said Callard, AB’97. “That’s pretty capital.”

This year’s talk, scheduled for September 22 at 6:30 p.m. in Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, will be broadcast on Facebook Live and the UChicago News website.

Callard said she also looked forward to the post-Aims colloquium with students at her former residence, which she led on several occasions as a faculty member at UChicago.

“As excited as I am to give the address, the real action is up for discussion,” Callard said. “When you’re a freshman, you get to college, but you don’t really do anything intellectual the first week you’re there. So there’s this sort of pent-up energy of, ‘when is the learning going to start?’ And I have the impression that this discussion is the first moment of it.

Callard vividly recalled the “wonderful” discussion that followed Aims’ 1993 speech when she was a freshman at UChicago.

“It was in Dodd-Mead, in this very cozy and intimate room,” Callard said. “The atmosphere was very serious. I felt like we decided important issues just by talking about them.

In the edited Q&A below, Callard discussed her personal reverence for the Aims address, the purpose it serves to launch the incoming class’ college career at UChicago, and what she looks forward to. address this year’s incoming class.

For you, what is the significance of this tradition in the collegial experience?

I freaked out when Dean Boyer asked me for the address. Anyone who knows me knows that I have been waiting to give this talk for a long time. I am extremely excited to be able to introduce myself to the entire class of incoming freshmen.

For me personally, I like to think about things at the level of abstraction that addressing the goals of education requires you to adopt. Some people don’t like this precise level of abstraction, which is sort of decidedly intellectual, but it has to appeal to people where they are and it can’t presuppose much about their motivations. It is a unique opportunity.

How does it feel to know that your skill will be part of a rich tradition of educational goals?

I see the address much more in its immediate function of guiding a group of students than as a lasting document. I think that’s partly because a lot of the ideas in it are kind of just touched on or pointed at.

I’m very happy that it’s been kept online for a long time, which is like a lasting cultural function.

What do you want students to think about when they walk past your address?

I’m very curious to talk to a group of students and find out what they took away. There’s always this kind of paradox about ‘What do you want students to take away from your course?’ if you teach one. For me, I rather hope to be able to say: ‘They have something original to remember, which they can tell me later.’ And then when they do, I can respond with, “I can see how that’s what you got out of it.”

It’s not about planting a message in them, and I don’t think the speech gives me time to argue conclusively for any claim anyway. I’ve given them some reasons to think, and I hope they find them compelling. If it leads them to think, “How or why do I feel what I feel?” then I would be happy.

LOS ANGELES – A South Bay man has been sentenced to 60 months in prison for cyberstalking several young women in a campaign of “sextortion” he carried out while an active member of the United States Marine Corps, announced now the Department of Justice.

Johao Miguel Chavarri, 26, aka “Michael Frito,” of Torrance, was sentenced late Thursday afternoon by U.S. District Judge Maame Ewusi-Mensah Frimpong, who also ordered him to pay a fine of $15,000.

Chavarri pleaded guilty May 27 to three counts of cyberstalking.

From May 2019 to February 2021, Chavarri stalked and sent anonymous threats to numerous victims, including the three victims referred to in the court documents.

Chavarri, often using the name “Frito”, reached out to the victims on social media platforms including Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter, complimented their looks and/or publicly posted photos, and suggested a relationship in which he would pay the victim to send him photos or videos. Some of the victims initially agreed to Chavarri’s requests and sent him nude, sexually explicit or compromising photos. When victims either refused Chavarri’s initial request for photos, refused to send him additional photos or videos, or refused to continue communicating with him online, Chavarri began to harass, threaten and extort victims using many online accounts.

In most cases, he threatened to post the victims’ sex photos and videos online or on well-known porn websites and distribute the sex photos or videos to the victims’ boyfriends, friends, families or employers – people he often specifically identified by Name. Chavarri threatened his victims, their friends and family that he would ruin their lives. He knew many of his victims personally.

“Perhaps most disturbing is the emotional distress that [Chavarri] intentionally inflicted on his victims,” prosecutors argued in a sentencing memorandum. “He terrified and terrorized them. Young women feared not only for their privacy and relationships with friends, family, employers and community, but also for their physical safety. They have suffered and continue to suffer significant emotional harm. »

The FBI investigated this case with the assistance of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Assistant United States Attorney Lauren Restrepo of the Cybercrime and Intellectual Property Section and Senior Counsel Mona Sedky of the Department of Justice’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section continued the case.

WASHINGTON DC-The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced they will be partnering with the National Basketball Association (NBA) and Major League Baseball (MLB) on the anniversary of a unique partnership to fight against counterfeits.

Counterfeit sporting goods generate millions of dollars in revenue for criminal organizations each year. Last year alone, CBP seized $94 million worth of fake souvenirs, clothing and sports equipment. CBP, the Chamber, the NBA and MLB hope their partnership will help protect consumers and their families from unsafe, substandard and counterfeit products that threaten consumer health and safety and expose law-abiding businesses to unfair economic competition.

The announcement comes just one year after CBP and the House signed a memorandum of understanding to improve collaboration and information sharing to better protect the public and brand owners from criminal counterfeit.

“The Chamber and businesses are proud to continue their alliance with law enforcement to prioritize solutions to eliminate counterfeit and pirated goods,” said Chamber Executive Vice President Tom Quaadman. “We are thrilled to expand this partnership with the participation of the very iconic National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball. Counterfeit products have real consequences, and consumers, whether they are sports fans, parents or small businesses, need to know that they are getting what they paid for. »

“Protecting intellectual property is a cornerstone of CBP’s trade mission and the results of our partnership with the Chamber thus far have been very exciting,” said John Leonard, Deputy Executive Assistant Commissioner of the Bureau of Commerce. . “We look forward to expanding this effort with the National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball and encourage sports fans to buy from trusted sources.”

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development estimates that the global trade in counterfeit and pirated goods generates more than $500 billion in illicit goods each year. In the past fiscal year, CBP seized more than 26,500 shipments containing millions of counterfeit items, including personal protective equipment, pharmaceuticals, COVID-19 test kits, electronics, clothing, shoes and jewelry.

The trade in counterfeit and pirated products threatens the U.S. innovation economy, the competitiveness of U.S. businesses, and the livelihoods of U.S. workers, and sometimes contains chemical compounds or additives that harm consumer health and safety . Proceeds from the sale of counterfeit products fund criminal organizations engaged in drug trafficking, arms smuggling, financial crime and other illicit activities.

CBP’s Fake Goods, Real Dangers initiative educates consumers about the dangers of buying counterfeit and pirated goods, and the Chamber and CBP have reached millions through joint television public awareness campaigns and on the radio to educate consumers on this issue. As part of this initiative, major retailers and customs officers are exploring data sharing as part of a pilot program.

Consumers can report suspected infringements through the e-Allegations online reporting system or by calling 1-800-BE-ALERT.

More information about intellectual property rights enforcement is available at CBP.gov and the Global Innovation Policy Center website.

Borers, Thinkers, and Doers: People, Places, and Ideas of Our Time is a collection of essays by Dr. Arif Azad, published in various journals and journals over the past two decades.

The book seeks to uncover various aspects of current political, social and literary issues and is a gripping account of some of the people who have influenced intellectual discourse locally and globally. With a keen understanding of the issues, a modern sensibility and a rational approach, Arif weaves together facts and analyzes them in a way that arouses readers’ curiosity and adds value to their understanding of the contemporary world. Without using cliché jargon, the author explains the issues with a realistic approach. He takes readers on a journey to explore the issues rather than face the flippant answers. The author’s light language, fresh perspectives and charming style are reminiscent of the prose of Khalid Hassan.

The first part of the book deals with contemporary discourse in world literature. Some articles, such as The Treatment of Night in Literature and The Nations and National Literature, provide new insights into the symbolism and politics of literature. He took up Naipaul’s colonial heritage and discussed the debate between Anglophiles and postcolonial authors over his artistic credentials and political ideas. His article on Shakespeare after 400 years beautifully portrays the relevance of the bard, his influence on people’s thoughts and theater in Pakistan and around the world.

The second part deals with cinema, television soap operas and filmmakers. A detailed commentary on their films, political ideas and art introduces readers to these great artists. Here, Arif illuminates the subtle beauty of art. For example, when discussing a film about Anna Karenina, Arif explains how themes of belief, love and fidelity, morality and individual freedom are inventively handled in the film.

The third part reviews some notable books. Evaluation of a book on Jeremy Corbyn, who is personally known to Arif, gives a detailed account of the man and his political environment. This section also discusses Ripper – a great forgotten but recently rediscovered novel about campus life and its malaise. In Part Four, Arif presents an in-depth analysis of various political movements and their impact on life in different parts of the globe. This includes the impact of radical anti-racism, the national liberation and socialist movements of 1968 on world politics, the rise and fall of the Russian Revolution after a hundred years, the rise of the right in Europe, Bernie Sanders and the Pakistan’s contemporary political landscape.

Arif Azad interweaves facts and analyzes them in a way that arouses readers’ curiosity and adds value to their understanding of the contemporary world..

A section of the book is dedicated to extraordinary progressive journals like Lotus, Point of view and South. The Lotuspublished in Beirut, was edited by Faiz Ahmad Faiz and represented progressive voices from around the world, particularly the Middle East. Point of view, a weekly magazine published in Lahore, edited by Mazhar Ali Khan and his team of illustrious journalists like Prof. Amin Mughal, IA Rehman and Zafar Iqbal Mirza, bravely resisted the overwhelming fear of the Zia regime in Pakistan. Another section composed of Arif’s stays through Warsaw and the Zagreb-Belgrade route presents an in-depth analysis of the evolution of societies in the Balkans.

The seventh part highlights some great Pakistani personalities like ZA Bhutto, Suhrawardis, SM Burke, Alys Faiz, Patras Bokhari, Nawabzada Nasrullah Khan and Malik Meraj Khalid. Among left-wing political leaders and intellectuals, this section refers to the life of Alys Faiz, Sheikh Mohammad Rashid a.k.a Baba-i-Socialism, journalist Abdullah Malik, academician Hamza Alvi and Zafaryab Ahmed. Hamza Alvi presented an innovative analysis of the overdeveloped state of Pakistan. Zafaryab Ahmed once represented the soul of left-wing youth in Lahore. Those who knew Zafaryab would love to read this article about this loving, jovial, witty and uncompromising activist in the socialist camp in Pakistan. Arif also pays tribute to the radical and very talented Trotskyist leader, always driven by the passion to paint the world red – Dr. Lal Khan. Finally, the colorful narration of the nightingale of Pakistan, multi-talented artist Noor Jehan, adds charm to this great pantheon.

The last section concerns people who have influenced political and literary discourse on a global scale. While Naipaul, in this section, represents the white supremacist point of view, Sivanandan, an anti-racism activist, shines a light on anti-colonial sentiment across the world. This section also includes other great literary giants like Philip Roth, Norman Mailer, the brilliant Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawm, the Marxist scholar and translator of Faiz’s poetry Victor Kiernan, the journalist Joan Didion and the great Polish political theorist and thinker Kolakowski. This section becomes more engaging with the vivid depiction of the lives of political theorists and practitioners like Fidel Castro, Nelson Mandela, Tony Benn, Edward Kennedy, Helmut Kohl, Joyti Basu and Christopher Hitchens.

Arif has a rational approach to life, influenced by a modern sensibility – informed and inspired by local and global human rights movements. The work shows Arif’s deep understanding and diverse exposure to various academic institutions and practical involvement in contemporary social and political movements. I first met Arif when he was a young medical student in Lahore, an avid reader of English literature – always engaged in literary and political debates. He then moved to the UK, where he became involved in human rights campaigns against racism and for immigrant rights and in defense of the political rights of marginalized groups. Later, he studied public policy at Birkbeck College, where Eric Hobsbawm also taught. After that, he landed at Umea University, Sweden to get his master’s degree in public health. He has worked in Pakistan and the Middle East with Doctors Without Borders as a public policy consultant and health expert.

The book shows the intellectual journey of a man who has a keen interest in literature and extensive work experience as a social scientist and human rights activist, both nationally and internationally.

Everyday Intellectual Property: Mickey Mouse and the History of Intellectual Property in Film – Trademark https://sohamsa.org/everyday-intellectual-property-mickey-mouse-and-the-history-of-intellectual-property-in-film-trademark/ Fri, 09 Sep 2022 15:38:19 +0000 https://sohamsa.org/everyday-intellectual-property-mickey-mouse-and-the-history-of-intellectual-property-in-film-trademark/ When animators Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks created “Steamboat Willie” in 1928, the first cartoon to feature Mickey Mouse, neither probably had a clue that their anthropomorphic, mischievous mouse would become a global entertainment icon and a perennial symbol of the impermanence of copyright protection. .

When animators Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks created “Steamboat Willie” in 1928, the first cartoon to feature Mickey Mouse, neither probably had a clue that their anthropomorphic, mischievous mouse would become a global entertainment icon and a perennial symbol of the impermanence of copyright protection. . But the impact of intellectual property (IP) in entertainment extends far beyond even the sagas of copyright law.

Nearly a century later, the impending copyright expiration of “Willie” illustrates one of the notable intellectual property protection issues facing the film industry. Yet the inevitability of copyright expiration is just one of many fascinating intellectual property stories that can be told – along with trademarks, licensing, brand valuation and many more. who play crucial roles in how we make, monetize and enjoy movies.

Mickey Mouse – full steam ahead into the public domain?

In the late 1920s, copyright law in the United States offered little protection compared to current laws: it only allowed a maximum term of 42 years (28 to begin with, with the possibility of renewal for an additional 14 years). Over the decades, this was extended, notably by the Copyright Term Extension Act of 1998. This new law, which the Walt Disney Co. directly lobbied for, provided protection for works for remuneration and anonymous and pseudo- anonymous that lasted for years. 120 years after creation or 95 years after first publication, whichever comes first.

The inexorable march of time means that Steamboat-era Mickey will still fall into the public domain in October 2024, despite the 1998 extension. But copyright is very complex and specificity carries a lot of weight. Older depictions of the Mickey Mouse character will be available for other creators to distribute – but only these particular cartoons. Mickey Mouse’s 1920s appearance is a registered trademark of the Disney Company, and actively used trademarks do not expire as long as renewal payments are made. So if someone uses the Mickey Mouse image taken from public domain content in a way that conflicts with Disney’s many trademarks, they could quickly find themselves at odds with the conglomerate’s legal department.


The Copyright Term Extension Act of 1998 has been highly controversial, with many calling it nothing more than a “Mickey Mouse Protection Act”. Critics of the extension argue that it stifles creativity and innovation, while proponents counter that longer-lasting creators’ rights allow them to earn a fair profit from their works.

In other words, the name and likeness of Mickey Mouse from the “Steamboat” era may only be used by Disney to indicate the origin of goods and services. While anyone will be able to modify, reproduce and distribute older Mickey Mouse cartoons when their copyrights expire, creators will not be free to generate new material using the character’s trademark elements. owned by Disney. And, crucially, Disney retains the hallmarks of Mickey’s various incarnations and iterative designs over the years.

It is very likely that Disney will take an aggressive stance in the early years of its public domain status in order to enforce its trademark rights and set a favorable precedent.

“Batgirl” disappears into the night

Disney knows precisely which characters it wants to use and how to use them. In contrast, Warner Bros. Discovery seems to be having a serious identity crisis with the DC Comics characters for which it owns the intellectual property rights.

Despite box office successes with films centering on both well-known (“Wonder Woman,” “The Batman”) and obscure (“Shazam”) characters, Warner Bros. Discovery recently made some decisions that had industry professionals, media and fans scratching their heads. A recent example of this was the media conglomerate’s sudden decision to shelve its completed “Batgirl” film altogether – to recoup some of the film’s alleged $70 million budget as a tax deduction. Some industry sources claimed the film was canceled due to poor test screenings, but others claimed the result was unrelated to quality at all and only stemmed from Warner’s financial concerns. . Still, it would appear that the move is part of a broader correction in the company’s trajectory aimed at steering the production company away from simultaneous releases of mid- to high-budget films in theaters and on streaming services.

In a vacuum, this decision is banal. Through his ownership of DC Comics and DC Entertainment, Warner can do whatever he wants with media featuring Batman, Batgirl, Superman, and countless other characters, all of which are trademarks of DC. What makes the cancellation of the “Batgirl” movie odd is that it came at a time when DC remains committed to releasing the much more expensive budget “The Flash” in 2023. Granted, the titular character has arguably greater IP value than Batgirl, as Warner expects “The Flash” will be a box office draw. But lead actor Ezra Miller has spent more time generating startling scandals in recent years than promoting the DC brand. It is the stark contrast between Warner’s approaches to the two situations that is shocking. A piece of intellectual property, “The Flash”, is currently damaging the brand due to its star controversies. The other, “Batgirl,” is, at worst, a bad movie, but it’s the one that’s locked away in a vault despite still being a valuable IP.

We may never know the real reasoning behind Warner’s decision to cancel the “Batgirl” movie. It can be any combination of the factors mentioned above or something else entirely. What we do know is that the turn of events is disappointing for fans of the DC character.

As unfazed as movie studios and television networks often seem, it will be interesting to see what long-term effects these decisions will have on Warner and DC’s brand identities and, ultimately, their values.

Tarantino’s NFT Legal Battle

The role of IP in branding is not limited to the mainstream of blockbuster franchises and cartoon characters. An upcoming legal battle between acclaimed screenwriter and director Quentin Tarantino (“Pulp Fiction,” “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) and his longtime distributor Miramax highlights this business reality.

In late 2021, Tarantino announced plans to auction digitized pages of the “Pulp Fiction” screenplay that were never filmed as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Miramax quickly sued the filmmaker for copyright infringement and breach of contract. Tarantino’s lawyers say the director’s rights to the script allow him to profit from assets directly tied to it. Miramax said its own copyright for the film supersedes the copyright for Tarantino’s screenplay.

With the case not going to trial until February 28, 2023, intellectual property professionals and moviegoers have plenty of time to speculate on how the case will evolve. Probably the most important debate will focus on how the 1993 licensing agreement between Tarantino and Miramax, which was made long before NFTs existed, affects Tarantino’s creation of NFTs using the script. “Interactive media” is listed as one of the rights reserved to Tarantino, so much depends on whether the director’s legal team can argue that NFTs can be classified under this umbrella.

Indie Horror: “All Rights Reserved”

The independent cinematic sphere (which Tarantino helped popularize with early films like “Pulp Fiction”) is still going strong. This enduring success is partly attributable to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, which have used their massive platforms to present complex and thought-provoking films. Prime examples include Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman”, Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma”, and Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog”, all of which have been nominated or won numerous awards.

The independent film industry, while relatively easy to break into, is notoriously difficult to conquer. Competition is fierce while resources, promotion and distribution are limited. Those who succeed are most often true passionate filmmakers who are determined to create art despite the challenges.

That said, if a funding deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The fly in the ointment of streaming distribution was the subject of a roundtable in July 2022 with prominent independent film producers. They said that when streaming services offer to fund, produce, or distribute independent films, the promised budgets (including producer and director fees) are often the proverbial offer they can’t refuse. However, in the fine print there may be clauses reserving most or all of the intellectual property rights to the streaming services. John Lesher, producer of Alfonso Cuarón’s ‘Birdman’ (2015 Best Picture Oscar winner), noted that this is a huge problem in European film markets, although it also hurts producers and directors in the United States.

Protect Expression

All kinds of intellectual property rights help protect films that have charmed, delighted, shocked and moved people around the world.
