What constitutes intellectual property infringement?

Infringements on any intellectual property rights you have should be taken seriously. As a Californian, you have protections for patents, copyrights, trade secrets and trademarks. According to Copyright Alliance, your rights to protect your intellectual property rights against infringements is granted under federal law. In general, infringement occurs whenever anyone violates the specific rights granted to you under federal law.

Amazon is changing the retail environment with a patent

It has been big news recently in California that Amazon has purchased Whole Foods. What may not have been such breaking news is the new patent the retail giant has secured. This patent is a game changer, which is not surprising since Amazon has been working hard to change the retail environment for years. However, this is going to change the in-store shopping experience and maybe not in a way that shoppers will be happy with.

How law enforcement was ill prepared for the rise of the internet

Internet usage is at an all-time high. Most people in California and across the country use it every single day, multiple times a day. It is used for recreation, business and financial reasons. With this rise in internet use, comes a rise in internet crime. Like any innovation before it, people have learned to use the internet to commit crimes. Unfortunately, as Government Technology notes, the law has not quite caught up to the internet criminals.

Examples of highly sought-after trade secrets

While trade secrets in California can be for anything, from computer algorithms to formulas, some of the most famous are for food recipes. Many of today’s major brands have some trade secret they are protecting. Most people have eaten these foods, and many may be wondering how these companies keep their recipes from being discovered or revealed.
