Trademarks



Trademarks are forms of intellectual property that protect identifying marks that distinguish goods or services. To be a trademark, the mark must be identified in the minds of consumers with a particular source of a good or service. Trademarks come in different levels of protection or "strengths," including generic marks, descriptive marks, suggestive marks, and arbitrary or fanciful marks.

Creating a Batman Ring, Who Do I Talk To?
My wife and I have been married for 5 years and i'm trying to do something special for hanging by my side through all my military bull-crap. She's really into Batman and I created a custom ring design that implements the Batman Begins symbol which I believe is copyrighted by Warner Bros. I want to have Zales create the ring but obviously they cannot touch it until I get approval from whoever owns the symbol. I've tried talking to both DC comics and Warner Bros but neither have responded. I am not reselling, producing for profit, etc. I just want to make a awesome and personal feel wedding ring that she would love. I need to know who and how to get rights to make this 1 ring; if at all possible.

Can I use footage (film) my husband shot?
Hi, I was making a documentary with my husband, but once we finished we got divorced. He took everything and I was supposed to keep the footage. He then changed his mind and threaten he's gonna sue me if I use the footage for anything. Is it fair to assume that being in front of the camera he already agreed to be part of the documentary? Can I use the footage 1) he's in 2) he's not in, only I'm in, but he shot 3) I shot myself during the trip What's the worst that can happen if I move on with release the movie? Thanks,
What business arrangement/relationship is best for us?
My small unfunded start-up innovation company, N.F, wants to promote/develop, directly or through strategic partner(s), an independent Polish inventor's technology IP We need to start talks reg which business arrangement/relationship can be formed. Which is best for N.F.? What is the typical value position [reward/compensation] each can expect? We invited a strategic partner, Ricardo, to the funding opportunity with the Navy and we are providing the IP, some of which is patented, pending but most is unsecured. Ricardo will do the R&D and be paid from the Navy grant with N.F. playing a minor/advisory role. What might Ricardo Engineering want in this venture? What is the typical value position the strategic partner will expect?
Am I liable for any illegal activity resulting from a hacked email account?
No one in my address book has responded to the request for funds mentioned in the fraudulent email in my name, but if someone were to do so, can I possibly be held accountable? Wouldn't an in depth search reveal that the emails did not in fact originate from my IP address?
