A summary of things you should know about Sell Your Ideas With or Without a Patent according to Stephen Key: Introduction In this episode bestselling author Stephen Key reveals his insights on his book, Sell Your Ideas With or Without a Patent, where he shares his secrets to making profits of product ideas. In his book Key reveals many stories, tactics, and tips on how to effectively protect an invention idea in order to earn royalties from it in the future. The goal of the book is to teach you how to fill out a patent application for the USPTO, save large amounts of money on the legal expenses that come with patenting, find an excellent patent attorney, and win over a licensing contract. This book is perfect for entrepreneurs who have innovative mindsets and want to know the inside secrets of making money off new inventions with or without patents. The Book’s Unique Quality (4:34) A book like this has never been written anywhere, ever because it’s from the business perspective, not the legal perspective. The Best Way To Engage (7:32) This book is written in such a way that if you have a simple idea you can read a few chapters and be ready to start immediately. And then I go in from a different perspective if you have a big idea and show you what exactly you need to do. The Reader’s Takeaway (12:11) You can do this and do it with confidence! A Deep Dive Into The Book (9:11) This book is for the listeners that have ideas but not sure what to do with it in fear that someone else might take it. If you dig into this book you will learn to understand how to use the tools provided and they are very inexpensive but you’ll learn how to write this information down that has value in that perceived ownership. This book is written in such a way that it gives you ownership. You will find throughout this book that it is a very technical book but it’s very easy to read and understand. I took a topic that was complicated and I brought it down to a level that anybody can understand and be able to use these tools that are provided for us. So this book strips away the fear, it shows you how to take a small idea for $65 and have that perceived ownership. It talks about how to structure a licensing agreement even if you don’t have any ownership. It’s time for us to take advantage of our size, to be quick, to be small, to be smart, and take these tools that the USPTO provide anyone in the world, to play the largest game in the world. But you have to understand how to leverage those tools and that’s why this book is very different. NOTE: That was just a summary. To get the full deep dive, play the audio clip at 09:11 Notable Quotes From The Book (12:45) “There is no such thing as ownership, it’s only perceived ownership.” – Stephen Key The Credibility/Inspiration Of The Author (1:21) I have been bringing my simple ideas to market and collecting royalties for each and every one that is sold. I am here to show you how to save money and protect those ideas when you bring them to market. A few years ago I was in federal court suing a small toy company Legos which took three years and through that whole process I realized that we never really own anything, even if we have patents. We have this fear that we have to have patents to go forward with our ideas and that’s just not true. This book was written from a business perspective about how to take our ideas, bring them to market, and use the tools from the USPTO to our advantage.

http://tinyurl.com/HomePowerAndMagnetInnovator There can be many reasons for wanting to end reliance on a state utility company for our residential energy demands. Fortunately, it is now relatively straightforward to develop a lifestyle of off-the-grid living. There are a number of alternative power generation systems which can be used to become completely self reliant in energy. Alongside the now common place solar panels and wind turbines lies an interesting third option - a magnetic motor based generator. If you have never come across this type of device before, you may be in for a big surprise. A magnetic motor can provide an unlimited supply of electricity, no matter what the prevailing climate. This system uses a few basic components, easily available in hardware stores and other outlets. It is theoretically possible to power your complete home for an investment of just a few hundred dollars. Most residential alternative energy systems do have a few inherent restrictions. If you reside in a large house that has many occupants, you may not be able to get all the electricity you require through a single generator, perhaps the device would only help offset your demand. If there is high demand, a number of generators can be installed in a series to help match consumption requirements. It is also of value to choose home appliances that are in inherently efficient. When shopping for white-goods, look out for the energy star symbol, this indicates that the product is not an excessive drain on resources. If you believe that a magnetic motor generator sounds to good to be true, you should understand that this is exactly what most utility companies would want you to think. In fact, the principles behind this type of system have been known for a long time, the famous physicist Nikola Tesla proved as much more than fifty years ago.

82 Hilarious Funny & Fake Products From China To listen to some nice music and relax, you can visit our friendly channel "TRG": https://goo.gl/Hry5Ut Wikipedia.org: To counterfeit means to imitate something. Counterfeit products are fake replicas of the real product. Counterfeit products are often produced with the intent to take advantage of the superior value of the imitated product. The word counterfeit frequently describes both the forgeries of currency and documents, as well as the imitations of clothing, handbags, shoes, pharmaceuticals, aviation and automobile parts, watches, electronics (both parts and finished products), software, works of art, toys, movies. Counterfeit products tend to have fake company logos and brands. In the case of goods, it results in patent infringement or trademark infringement. Counterfeit consumer products have a reputation for being lower quality (sometimes not working at all) and may even include toxic elements. This has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, due to automobile and aviation accidents, poisoning, or ceasing to take essential compounds (e.g. in the case a person takes non-working medicine). The counterfeiting of money is usually attacked aggressively by governments worldwide. The counterfeiting of goods is condoned by some governments. Counterfeit paper money is the most popular product counterfeited. Theverybesttop10.com: Each and every year firms spend millions on brand identity only to spend twice as much in courtrooms up and down the land fighting brand theft, and imitation! Sad news indeed for the company’s that have to pay it, but for us consumers it does lead to some rather funny discovery’s when we are out shopping. So I have decided to bring you just ten of what I think is the very best examples of brand identity theft…. “Only Future Coke will do when you’re thirstiest! …not now, but in the future!” TIP: They say a change is as good as a rest, but when it comes to product and indeed company re-branding little is very much more, little changes over the course of a few years will have a much lesser impact than a sudden product change. Sadly the truth is that people don’t like changes, but little changes might well go un-noticed. “Let’s Build! ..using bricks, plastic ones, but not the official kind.” TIP: When it comes to brand identity always try and do something every now and again that is a surprise! Maybe a crazy, un-related giveaway or a unique competition idea. Next week we take a look at the new Sqny Peestation! TIP: Have you ever seen those design concepts that phone company’s, car manufactures seem to accidentally let slip? Well that is no accident at all, in fact it is a great way of judging how people might react to the real and indeed finished brand design.

UDATE to this original video. It was determined that this initial design did work for a while but then the coons began to learn how to get around it. The next design worked for a while longer and again the Coons learned to beat it so after 15 months of design research and countless redesigns we finally came up with a design that Coons couldn't beat. The NEW design is Patent Pending and will beat any other product on the market.

Many software developers and technology companies feel that patents are an essential tool to protect investment in research and development. However, the law in Europe and the UK relating to the protection of computer-implemented inventions excludes certain subject matter from patentability on the grounds that it's not an "invention". Software per se is one such excluded category. In this video, Dr Jonathan Markham from Beck Greener explains the background law. He then outlines the kinds of software-related inventions that can be patented and advises on how best to frame such an invention to meet the requirements of the UK and European patent offices. Topics covered: -- Benefits of patenting software-based inventions -- Misconceptions about patenting software-based inventions -- The Aerotel test / contribution approach -- How the EPO's approach differs -- How to identify whether an invention is patentable -- Tips for protecting computer-implemented inventions Cases referenced: -- Aerotel Ltd v Telco Holdings Ltd -- HTC Europe Co Ltd v Apple Inc -- AT&T Knowledge Ventures LP v Comptroller General of Patents Designs and Trade Marks -- VICOM/Computer-related invention (T208/84) -- Lantana Ltd v Comptroller-General of Patents, Designs and Trade Marks -- Halliburton Energy Services Inc's Patent Applications -- Toshiba Research Ltd BL/O/453/14 -- Menashe Business Mercantile Ltd v William Hill Organisation Ltd You can watch the full-length CPD-accredited version of this video here: http://legalpd.com/details?semid=484

This week, Stan teaches you about patents. It turns out, they're patently complicated! So, patents have some similarity to copyright, in that they grant a limited monopoly to people who invent things. The key difference in patents and copyright is that patents are for THINGS. Copyright is for an idea. So, if you've come up with a great new invention, like for example, a condiment gun, you should get a patent. We'll also talk about some of the limitations and problems of patents, including patent trolls Crash Course is now on Patreon!

So one of the questions we saw was "Hey my Chinese supplier knowingly supplied me with products that infringe on some other company's patent in the US." Remember you cannot rely on a Chinese supplier to understand US patent regulations or trademarks. They're gonna sell you the product and they don't care where your sell it, it's not their job. So YOU will be the "Importer of Record" in the USA. Meaning that when you bring those products in the USA and you're doing that shipping and you're bringing it in, you are obligated for any safety problems, any defects that cause injury etc. those will all be your responsibilities. So when we talk about IP in China there are 2 basic things to discuss: Patents Trademarks Patent law in China is young and growing, China is a "first to file" country, not a "first to use" country. Meaning somebody can take your product and file it very quickly in China and give it a trademark or a patent, so you need to be very aware. Again the question is, How do you know that your product is going to be legit to sell in the US? Your Chinese supplier will not know that! You need to take the initiative. You need to talk to a lawyer. You need to understand if your product is going to infringe on somebody else's patent or trademark. That's YOUR responsibility. So you can find an English-speaking lawyer in China pretty easily. Lawyers are fairly inexpensive in China compared to the US or Europe and they can do a basic background search for you and check and see if your patents infringe or are close to somebody else's product. I would say it's under $500 so it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out where your product is. Again, this is something your Chinese supplier will not have any knowledge about and won't do it for you. - See more at: http://www.runningwithchina.com/how-do-you-know-if-your-product-is-going-to-be-legit-to-sell-in-the-us-or-any-other-country/ -------------------- ABOUT RUNNING WITH CHINA -------------------- We are Jamon, Matt, and Terry (JMT), three Americans that have been living in China for a collective 30 years.

It can be quite a challenge to find a manufacturer -- one you like working with and whose factory produces a quality product at a fair price. Here are some tips on how to navigate through the process of finding one, as well as how to optimize your relationship with your manufacturer so that you -- and your customers -- are happy. For more infor visit: http://www.focuspdm.com/ Step 1: Creating a Prototype Creating a working prototype or finding someone who can do it for you is the first step in the manufacturing process. During my early days, I was able to sew most of my prototypes. But as my product, Planecomfort, was refined and the components used and the skills necessary to create the product I envisioned moved beyond my sewing expertise, I knew I needed help. Searching online, I found a wonderful yet small cut-and-sew business in northern California called Left in Stitches. This relationship proved valuable to me in a number of ways. They not only helped refine my original prototype, but they offered many suggestions and ideas for making the product easier to manufacture. Many of these smaller domestic companies offer prototyping services that are invaluable to new entrepreneurs. Once you have a prototype, there is quality and design testing and tweaking. At each stage of development, and every time I received the newer version of my product, I washed, dried, pulled, stretched, zipped, unzipped, and put my product through the proverbial "ringer." Making sure your product will exceed your customers' expectations is a sure way to keep them coming back and referring your product to others. Ideally, you want to have a dozen or so finished prototypes. Manufacturers will want one or two samples sent to them as a reference to compare to the finished product their factory is making. I thought I would be able to use Left in Stitches for the long term, but due to logistical reasons and production costs, I had to find an overseas manufacturer. Moving your manufacturing operations overseas means you want large quantities (usually thousands) of the item you are producing. If you want hundreds of something, you may be better off working with a domestic manufacturer. Step 2: Finding a Manufacturer I located my overseas manufacturers through referrals, which provided me with an immediate level of comfort and confidence with these factories. One referral came from a fabric manufacturer. Most fabric manufacturers have relationships with product manufacturers. Another factory was referred to me by a marketing services company. This company manufactures both soft and hard goods and was happy to provide their contact with another business opportunity. Call domestic manufacturers and inquire about their overseas connections. Ask everyone you know if they know someone who manufactures the type of products you are creating. Search online for companies with products similar to yours and call them. Who do they use? How did they get started? My experience is that most people will want to help you. I found it was best to work with at least two different companies when trying to decide who will win your business. Who is easiest to work with? Who meets (or beats) your expectations? Is one more knowledgeable than the other? Having a comparison is essential to ensure you are getting a quality product at a fair price. There are two common ways you can deal with overseas manufacturing. You can find a broker or agent in the U.S. that represents the factory, or deal with a factory directly. Once you have determined who you might like to work with, you must check references on your contact and the factory. Some of the important questions to ask: Was the product made to specifications? What percentage of the shipment was defective? If there was a problem with the shipment, did the factory make restitution? Were deadlines met? If not, what did the factory offer to make amends? Is what was promised delivered? How is the quality of goods they produce? How long have you worked with this person and factory? How many orders have you placed? Is your contact easy to work with? Is he/she responsive to calls and emails? What type of projects does the factory excel in producing? Soft goods, hard goods? What types of companies do they normally work with? Who is responsible for landing the goods in the U.S.? Text by Ann Merlini, founder of Pac'n Nap, LLC. For more information on How to Design and Manufacture a Product visit: http://www.focuspdm.com/

A gene patent held by Myriad Genetics was struck down by Australia's highest court in a unanimous decision. The ruling comes after Yvonne D'Arcy, a 69-year-old breast cancer patient, filed a lawsuit against the company, which holds the patent for the BRCA1 gene--a gene that increases the odds of breast cancer in women. Australia is the second country to strike down gene patents; the US Supreme Court struck down Myriad Genetics' patents on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 in 2013.

(30 Jul 2012) STORYLINE: Technology giants Samsung and Apple are squaring off in federal court in a closely watched patent trial over control of the US smart phone and computer tablet markets. Apple filed a lawsuit against Samsung Electronics last year alleging the world's largest technology company's smartphones and computer tablets are illegally similar to its popular iPhone and iPad products. The Cupertino-based company is demanding 2.5 (b) billion US dollars in damages, an award that would dwarf the largest patent-related verdict to date. Samsung maintains that Apple is doing the stealing and that some of the contested technology, such as the rounded rectangular design of smart phones and tablet computers, has been industry standards for years. The US trial is just the latest skirmish between the two over product designs. A similar trial began last week, and the two companies have been fighting in courts in the United Kingdom and Germany. The case is one of some 50 lawsuits among telecommunications companies jockeying for position in the burgeoning 219 (b) billion US dollar market for smart phones and computer tablets. "The average consumer has a stake in that this trial may decide how much competition there is in the smart phone industry. If Samsung, Apple's primary competitor, ends up paying punitive damages, that would be a very hefty blow to any company," said Charles Babcock, Editor-at-Large of Information Week. In the United States, US District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose last month ordered Samsung to pull its Galaxy 10.1 computer tablet from the US market pending the outcome of the trial, though the judge barred Apple attorneys from telling the jurors about the ban. Legal observers say it's rare that a patent battle with so much at stake doesn't settle before going to trial. Some experts believe the lawsuits are just attempts by one company to inflict damage on a close rival and gain a larger share of the market. "What's at stake is real domination in the smart phone industry, which is a very fast moving and incredibly lucrative area of business," said Professor Robin Feldman of the UC Hastings College of the Law. "I think for the consumer it would be better to have everybody in the space because they compete against each other. But for the big players, they'd rather knock everybody off and be the one left standing. That's what's going on here." Apple lawyers argue there is almost no difference between Samsung's products and Apple's and that the South Korean company's internal documents show it copied Apple's iconic designs and its interface. Samsung denies the allegation and counter-charges that Apple copied its iconic iPhone from Sony. Samsung lawyers say that the company has been developing mobile phones since 1991 and that Apple jumped into the market only in 2007.

http://www.asianprosource.com/ - Wondering how you can protect your IP when sourcing your product to China? Discover the techniques on how to go about that in this 2-min video. Today, Cort Smith, founder of AsianProSource shares about how to protect your intellectual property in China. The core concept that you should focus is about "separating your technologies". What that means is whatever product you might be building if your outsourcing overseas, it's ideal to separate the technologies so that your drawing, your secret sauce, your packaging could be put in different hands so that no any one company is holding the keys to your product. This will prevent or discourage anyone from trying to go on facilitator to make up the parts that they don't have. So Tip #1 on keeping your Intellectual Property safe in China - Separate Your Technologies. Another key concern in protecting your Intellectual Property in China is to protect your product before it ever gets there. Think of it like this - have you heard about the "hijacking" of urls back in the days of 90's when websites first became a thing. It's that there were some unsavory pirates out there that will find up and starting products, even things on Kickstarter. They will register the name of that product in China, maybe even file a patent for the outward shape or design patent of the product in China which would limit your ability to ever produce that and export that product from China back out. So the protect the Intellectual Property, you need to think ahead and ask yourself - do you want to register the name of your product? Maybe trademark that name in China? Maybe file a design patent in China to ensure that the product could come out of the export process without a hiccup. Thanks for watching!

In this The Normalized Terminal Year in a DCF tutorial, you’ll learn how to normalize a company’s Free Cash Flow in the Terminal Year and Terminal Period of a Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) analysis, including the most common adjustments to make and the key mistakes to avoid. http://breakingintowallstreet.com/ "Financial Modeling Training And Career Resources For Aspiring Investment Bankers" Table of Contents: 3:48 Why You Might Need to Normalize the Terminal Year Free Cash Flow in a DCF 7:42 How to Normalize the Terminal Year FCF for Jazz 14:07 Checking Your Work 16:35 What to AVOID When Normalizing the Terminal Year FCF 18:58 Recap and Summary Lesson Outline: Question that came in the other day: “In a DCF model, how do you normalize the FCF for the firm in the last year of the projection period? I thought you just had to remove non-recurring charges to normalize it, but the interviewer seemed to want something more.” “So how do you normalize Free Cash Flow in a DCF?” To answer this question, remember what Terminal Value in a DCF represents: the sum of the PV of the company’s Free Cash Flows beyond the final projection year of a DCF into infinity. Often, you calculate the Terminal Value based on the Final Year FCF and an FCF Growth Rate: Terminal Value = Final Year FCF * (1 + FCF Growth Rate) / (Discount Rate – FCF Growth Rate) This growth rate is often linked to GDP growth, inflation, etc. PROBLEM: What if a company’s Free Cash Flows in the projection period are not consistent with its Free Cash Flows in its “steady state,” i.e. within the Terminal Period? For example, what if you’re analyzing a biotech/pharmaceutical company and its Final Year FCF is the year a key drug patent expires – then its revenue and FCF will fall off a cliff in the following years! Yes, that is an extreme example, but there are plenty of other issues that might come up for “normal” (i.e., non-biotech/pharma) companies: Issue #1: Does the revenue growth rate make sense? Issue #2: Are the margins reasonable? Issue #3: Do CapEx and D&A make sense? Issue #4: Are the Working Capital requirements similar to the historical ones? Issue #5: Is the tax rate free of the impact of NOLs, tax credits, and other items that expire or get used up over time? How to Normalize the Terminal Year FCF in Real Life Application #1: We’re assuming a lower revenue growth rate of ~5% because the company’s key product patent expires 1-2 years before the final year, so it will probably grow at a much lower rate going forward until it “strikes gold” again. Application #2: We’re adjusting the EBIT margin down to 45% because its key product (Xyrem) is far less profitable with lower prices (due to generics) in the Terminal Period. Application #3: We can’t assume that the big Amortization of Intangibles expense and non-cash add-back will continue indefinitely because it expires a few years after the end of the final year. Application #4: We’re making CapEx as a % of revenue slightly lower to reflect lower re-investment in the business… but it still stays above D&A as a % of revenue. Application #5: We’re also making the Change in WC as a % of the Change in Revenue slightly lower, because the expiring patents threw off some of the projection-period numbers here. Check: What does the Normalized Year FCF look like now? Is the growth rate more consistent? Taxes, NOLs, and Tax Credits If a company has Net Operating Losses (NOLs), tax credits, etc., they should not apply forever. They’ll expire or be used up at some point! So you need to account for this and make sure they do not reduce a company’s cash taxes forever. What to AVOID When Normalizing FCF Do not set CapEx equal to Depreciation – it’s not justified due to inflation, productivity/technology gains, and FCF growth in the Terminal Period (which tends to require an increasing asset base). Don’t assume HIGHER Growth or Margins: This approach very rarely makes sense – what company grows at a faster rate 10 years into the future? And don’t assume that tax benefits such as those from NOLs continue indefinitely.

It started off as the LandWind E32 in patent drawings last year, then became the LandWind X7. The product of a joint venture between otherwise respected Chinese car companies Changan Auto and Jiangling Motors Corporation, by either name it is a rip-off of the Range Rover Evoque. Land Rover complained to Chinese authorities about what it describes as a theft of intellectual property, but the complaint was dismissed. With all obstacles out of the way, Autocar reports that the X7 goes on sale in China next month. Chinese buyers seeking a bargain will have to give the X7 a hard look – its price is just one-third of the Evoque's. The similarities are more than skin deep. The X7 is powered by a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but the difference in MSRP shows up when comparing the outputs: 188 horsepower for the X7, 237 hp for the Evoque. Elsewhere, Autocar's close comparison of the real deal and its hanger-on revealed the differences in detailing that you'd expect of any much less expensive copycat. Although this nota bene concerns different vehicles, when it comes to corporate philosophy there was LandWind's X6, a repurposed Isuzu Rodeo that scored a zero in Europe's NCAP crash test, and it's CV9 - which cribbed a Vauxhall - that scored a two in the same crash test procedure. So there could be a few more differences between the Evoque and the X7 that might not be worth the money saved. Chinese buyers will have their chance to find out in a month's time.

Rackspace Vice President of Intellectual Property, Van Lindberg, sat down with Internet Association to explain the company's decision to aggressively fight patent trolls. "We made the business decision to fight – every time, every troll, every patent," says Lindberg in the video. "And since then, we've been fighting, and we've been winning, but it's expensive, and it's hard." Lindberg's comments come as Congress is set to return from recess, with patent reform legislation still present on its to-do list. For years, companies from Main Street to Silicon Valley have been forced to expend precious resources to fight back against patent trolls – shell companies that use vague and overly broad patents to threaten expensive lawsuits and extract cash settlements from victims. These patent trolls have cost businesses billions of dollars in the past decade, and estimates show that the cost for most businesses to defend themselves in court against a patent troll can range between $2 and $9 million per suit. "It's hard to fully appreciate the damage patent trolls inflict on businesses of all sizes," said Internet Association President & CEO Michael Beckerman. "It is time for Congress to solve this problem by passing patent reform legislation this year. People should not live in fear that defending yourself against a frivolous lawsuit could lead to bankruptcy." Unfortunately, trends in patent troll lawsuits are only getting worse. A recent report released by Unified Patents shows that 2015 is on pace to have the most patent infringement lawsuits of all time, with patent trolls responsible for 68 percent of these lawsuits. If these litigation rates hold for the rest of the year, then there would be a record 6,100 patent lawsuit filings in 2015. "People are starting to use the legal system as a cudgel to beat other people with, exploiting this inefficiency in the legal system to extort settlements," says Lindberg. Ultimately, what's at stake is the ability for small businesses and individuals to innovate. Lawsuits from patent trolls are stifling innovation and making consumers worse off because companies are having to waste valuable resources on hiring lawyers, instead of creating better and more efficient products and services. "This was such a threat to innovation, and innovation was so important to us that we had to fight," says Lindberg. It's time for Congress to stand up for the innovators of America and pass legislation that prevents patent trolls from using the legal system as a weapon.

Shares of GoPro (GPOR) crashed after Apple (AAPL) was granted a patent for its remote-control camera system on Tuesday, making it TheStreet's Move of the Day. Apple was granted a patent for a camera system that can be controlled using a phone or watch. The sell-off of GoPro shares was due to investor concerns that Apple would create similar products. The company, which went public in June of 2014, has been trading at more than twice its IPO price of $24 a share. GoPro has been the dominant maker of wearable video cameras used by surfers and others. About half of the company's outstanding shares will become available on the market next month, when a lock-up expires on employees and other insiders' shares.

Lets check that out. In July earlier this year, Airbus received a patent on a supersonic aircraft that could reach New York from London in 1 hour. This week, Airbus filed a patent application on an important improvement to their supersonic aircraft. The supersonic aircraft has a rocket engine at the back of the fuselage. It also has two turbojets laterally arranged near the rear of the fuselage. Once the aircraft climbs to a certain altitude, the turbo jets are powered off and the rocket engine is ignited at full power causing the aircraft to travel vertically like a rocket at supersonic speeds. Because of this vertical trajectory, the energy of the supersonic boom is dissipated in all horizontal radial directions and does not encounter the ground. At this point of time, the turbo jets cause lot of drag. Therefore, flaps placed in front of the inlets of the turbo-jets are activated. The flaps cover the inlets, thereby reducing the drag considerably. After reaching a very high altitude, the aircraft curves into a horizontal trajectory at which point the rocket engine is powered off and closed by a door to make it streamlined. Thereafter, the flaps can be retracted and the turbojets can be ignited to propel the aircraft horizontally at supersonic speeds. The fact that there is another patent application on the same technology, it indicates that Airbus is seriously working on this aircraft. So expect to have this in use quite soon. Patent Information: Patent Application No. 20150344158 Title: SPACE AIRCRAFT Assignee: AIRBUS DEFENCE AND SPACE SAS (Les Mureaux, FR) Inventors: Ferreira, Eugénio (Toulouse, FR); Prampolini, Marco (Chambourcy, FR); Coraboeuf, Yohann (Merignac, FR) Application Number: 14/763299 Publication Date: 12/03/2015 Filing Date: 01/17/2014 International Classes: B64G1/40; B64G1/14 Abstract: According to the invention, said space aircraft comprises, at the front of each of the air inlets of the turbo engines, a mobile flap that can move, in both directions, between a first position for which said flap opens said air inlet and a second position for which said flap prevents air from entering said air inlet.

In which Stan Muller teaches you about our third branch of Intellectual Property, trademarks. A lot of people confuse trademark and copyright. Trademarks apply to things like company and product names and logos, packaging designs, and commercial designs. Basically, copyright protects ideas, but trademarks protect the things that help consumers tell companies apart. This ensures that consumers know the source of the goods they're buying. Without trademarks, it would be really difficult to buy the same product twice, and very easy for unscrupulous companies to pass off fakes and knock offs of the products you want. I'm telling you, you like trademarks. Crash Course is now on Patreon!
