I"m new to this thread, which seems to be a few years old by now. I am an experienced Ph.D. USPTO registered patent agent with over 30 patents of my own (23 issued), and about 70 patents that I have drafted for others. I do work in electronics, software, biomedical technology, and biomedical devices. I have also had quite a bit of experience in international filings, freedom of action searches, and litigation support.
I try to do "big law firm" quality work at a fraction of the price, and some of my work is in fact published under the name of some big law firms and assigned to large corporations. Check out my website at http://www.patentassociate.com .
While not meaning to be harsh here, I do not suggest that people use a patent agent - paricularly one working alone. The reason is that most I know do not understand the litigation process - because they either have no experience in litigation and/or are not licensed to do litigation. Without that, it is tough to understand the "big picture" needed to draft an application that will hold up in litigation.
Can i get Trade mark on my Image hosting website ?
I am not sure tho..
James, I have a question for you. I have been working on a children's book (along with website, and creating this whole world for these characters) what should I do to protect my ideas.
