The Complete Guide to Patents Copyrights and Trademarks

Publisher: Atlantic Publishing Company
ISBN: 9781601382313
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Business & Economics

Hundreds of thousands of people apply for patents, copyrights, and trademarks in the United States every year. For example, the United States Patent and Trademark office recently reported that 452,633 patent applications were filed in one year. You can easily become one of these people if you have created the greatest American invention, if you are the next Stephen King and have written a book to prove it, or if you have designed an eye-catching logo for your company. The Complete Guide to Patents, Copyrights, and Trademarks will provide you with all the information you need to know about acquiring, registering, maintaining, and protecting your intellectual property. A patent is a grant of property rights to the inventor and essentially excludes others from making, using, and selling your invention, whereas a trademark is a word, symbol, or device used to indicate the source of goods and to distinguish your goods from those of others. A copyright, on the other hand, protects original works and the form of the expression rather than the subject matter. This new, exhaustively researched book will help you decide which of the three you need to apply for, as well as which things can be patented, trademarked, and copyrighted and which cannot. In this book, you will learn how to file an application, how to register, how to avoid infringement, and how to avoid common problems. Additionally, you will become knowledgeable about where to fi≤ the fees involved; laws and regulations associated with the process; the differences between copyrights, trademarks, and patents; the differences between utility, design, and plant patents; who may apply; attorneys and agents; and the forms you need to fill out. Whether you are applying for a patent, copyright, or trademark, this book will provide you with all the necessary information necessary to do so. The Complete Guide to Patents, Copyrights, and Trademarks is the only book you need to read if you want to protect your intellectual property.

Genre: History

Berlin, 1933. William E. Dodd kommt als Botschafter nach Deutschland. Zunächst recht unkritisch, verkehren er und seine Tochter Martha mit hochrangigen Nazis und besuchen deren schillernde Partys. Doch die Schatten werden immer dunkler - bis zur blutigen »Nacht der langen Messer«, in der ein Ausbruch von Gewalt und Hass endgültig Hitlers skrupellose Ambitionen offenbart. Er ist nicht Roosevelts erste Wahl, doch da sich kein anderer Kandidat findet, wird der gutmütige Geschichtsprofessor Dodd nach Berlin geschickt. Dieser muss sich nicht nur mit den merkwürdigen Entwicklungen in Deutschland auseinandersetzen, sondern auch einem intriganten, politisch gleichgültigen State Department entgegentreten. Unterdessen ist Martha verzückt von den Partys und dem Pomp - und den hübschen jungen Nazis. Doch als sich Attacken auf Juden häufen, die Presse der Zensur unterworfen wird, Entwürfe von beängstigenden Gesetzen in den Umlauf kommen und schließlich in der »Nacht der langen Messer« Hitlers wahre Absichten offenbar werden, müssen die Dodds die Gefahr erkennen. Atemberaubend temporeich erzählt, mit unvergesslichen Porträts der neuen Herren von Deutschland, zeigt das Buch aus der Perspektive von externen Augenzeugen die Machtergreifung der Nazis in einem neuen Licht - und gibt Einblick, warum die Welt die ernste Bedrohung durch Hitler erst wahrnahm, als Berlin und Europa von Blut und Terror überschwemmt wurden.
