As the sales performance of my actual business is going down and I guaranteed a considerable loan together with my partner, I do not know how to deal with this situation. Firstly, I cannot trust my partner anymore and it is not likely to expect high business commitment from him in the future. The other issue is that he clearly stole an idea that was generated internally.
Inventors are encouraged to search the USPTO’s patent database to see if a patent has already been filed or granted that is similar to your patent. Patents may be searched in the USPTO Patent Full-Text and Image Database (PatFT). The USPTO houses full text for patents issued from 1976 to the present and TIFF images for all patents from 1790 to the present.
Any time you claim rights in a mark, you may use the "TM" (trademark) or "SM" (service mark) designation to alert the public to your claim, regardless of whether you have filed an application with the USPTO. However, you may use the federal registration symbol "®" only after the USPTO actually registers a mark , and not while an application is pending. Also, you may use the registration symbol with the mark only on or in connection with the goods and/or services listed in the federal trademark registration.
To play the SEO game safely, I recommend using only a few-to-none cross-links. I am saying this because I have seen my organic engine rankings suffer after my cross-linked sites were shut down at the same hosting company for about eight hours straight. I suspect my sites were penalized because the engines found out I was cross-linking using too many different keyword phrases as my backlink titles. Three weeks after slowly removing 90% of my cross-links, I noticed an improvement in organic rankings. Now I have no plans on going back to excessive cross-links.
