Internet romance schemes victimize innocent people

With the continuing advancement of internet technology, incidents of computer crimes in California and across the nation have run rampant. Millions of people have come forward claiming that they have been victims of internet crimes, according to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center. Officials state, however, that only 15 percent of all internet crimes are actually reported to law enforcement officers. Other incidents either go undetected or are simply unreported. Although there are many types of online crimes, internet romance schemes stand out as one of the most emotionally devastating.

How does the patent application process work?

When you are ready to patent your product or concept, there are several steps that you must take to ensure your invention is properly protected in California and throughout the country. Before you begin the application process, you must decide whether your creation is eligible for a patent. Not only must your invention be completely new, it must meet all of the specific requirements set by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. There are several types of patents, including utility patents, design patents and plant patent. Although each type may have small differences in the patent application process, most are generally similar.

What is a temporary injunction?

The success of your California business relies on the quality of its service or product, its intellectual property and its trade secrets. When another party tries to use those secrets or property without permission, you can take protective action and one step is to get a temporary injunction.

How do I protect my intellectual property?

The world is experiencing a boom of innovation across multiple industries, much of which relies on brilliant new ideas and inventions. What some people in California fail to grasp is that intellectual property is perhaps one of the biggest drivers of this innovation. Unfortunately, protecting that intellectual property can be a troubling prospect for those ready to embark on their ideas.

How a patent infringement can occur

Inventions happen all the time, opening new paths for businesses in Sacramento to achieve their goals, streamline their processes and improve their own goods or services. However, using technology or items that belong to another company or person could expose businesses to litigation involving patent infringement.
