Intellectual Property Rights Resources

These resources I provide to you in response to requests from participants in my “Hey, That’s My Idea!” programs. I have no ties or relationships to any of these resources, unless indicated at the resource link. I have used some; seen them all at some point; and most of all, sincerely hope that you find something here that is helpful to you as you implement your ideas.

The “official” scoop on trademark and patent protections for US-originated intellectual property and products.
USPTO
LegalZoom
A quick and (reasonably) easy online resource for legal processes.
NOTE FROM SYLVIA: While I include this resource here, I issue this personal warning for using this resource. They perform as advertised. Yet, they perform as advertised. Read between the lines. I was very unhappy with their results when I pursued a trademark for my logo, and had to subsequently engage a local trademark attorney – at several thousand dollars – to “fix” the issue.
