Alert! Free legal information! (Kind of free, that is).
As everyone who took Economics 101 knows, there is no such thing as a free lunch. I am quite fond of this statement and believe that (in the context of a blog offering information about the law) the historical parallel is complete: after all, King Nebuchadnezzar was frustrated by his attempt to obtain a grain of truth and agreement from a series of economic advisors. The last economic adviser to provide a presentation to the King proclaimed "It is an immutable fact that there is no such thing as a free lunch." So on this page I provide a hodge-podge of generalized information on trademark law for the not-so-selfish purposes of helping readers realize the more interesting oddities of trademark law. But I reiterate: it is not a free lunch and it is information about the law, not legal advice! (give me a call for that stuff).
If you want to know something about trademarks, their function, their purpose, and how you get one, start at this page.
So this page describes why you need a trademark attorney. And it provides funny anecdotes that demonstrate why not having a trademark attorney (or having the wrong attorney) can really screw things up badly for you.
This page talks about how fun the trademark creation process can be and talks about why trademark searches are always the best policy.
THIS SITE IS ONLY A BLOG AND IS NOT MEANT TO CONSTITUTE LEGAL ADVICE. IT IS ALSO PARTIALLY AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR LEGAL SERVICES BY ME, JUSTIN CLARK, ESQ. BUT I AM NOT YOUR LAWYER AND YOU ARE NOT MY CLIENT.
ALSO, THE PHRASE "MR. ANTI-GENERIC" IS MEANT TO MEAN INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ENTHUSIAST AND IS NOT MEANT TO SUGGEST THAT I HAVE CERTIFIED OR OTHER EXPERTISE IN ANY PARTICULAR FIELD OF LEGAL PRACTICE.
