Why is patenting important for your business?

Is the patenting process worth it?

If you are at least a little bit familiar with the patenting process, you are quite aware of how complex the process is and how much effort it takes. The sole fact of coming out with an invention or developing an all new product or productive process is a huge investment of resources, time and money. This effort adds up to all the work that the developers have had to do to learn about their field of expertise and prepare themselves to conduct the investigation. On top of that, the patenting process is long and requires a lot of background investigation as well. This is due to the understandable fact that, if your invention or idea has already been registered under someone else's name, the whole patenting process will be of no use. If a patent does not feature an all new idea, it is invalid. Even if you have completed such research -or paid to someone else to do it for you- you still will have to follow the legal steps of the patenting process and perhaps wait for years in the stage of patent pending until the patent is oficially granted for you. And, after all of that effort, the patent will expire anyway in about two decades as most legal systems go, and you will never be able to regain power or control over your own idea again.

All of this can -understandably- be disencouraging for people who are considering to patent an idea. Patenting can be a bother and sometimes the benefits could seem too little to be worth it. Well, this can lead to the importance of intelectual property protection being overlooked. Not all people are fully aware of why patents can be so important. Certainly, if they were not, nobody would take the time and effort to lead a patenting process or pay an attorney to do so.

Legal Advice for Collaborative Platforms like Guest in the City

Legal challenges for collaborative platforms

It is in the nature of economy models, just as any other thing created by humans, to evolve and change as time goes by. The capitalist model has adapted during the course of its history, being the same at its core but mutating and offering new possibilities for growth and exploitation. Collaborative economies are among the latest economic strategies used by people to create businesses and exchange goods and services in order to generate wealth. Perhaps the basic difference between the old and new models is that collaborative economy is less hierarchical and less centralized, so value can flow among the actors in a more equitable way.

From minute one collaborative economy sounds like a field of activities and jobs for which legislation is not yet prepared. And to some degree, this is true. At the beginning, collaborative models were apart from the mainstream scheme of markets and companies, just people doing their own thing. However, now there are web portals, organizations and very active groups, even companies, with deep involvement in a collaborative economy. So legislation did start to adapt and new laws and bills were passed, aiming to regulate this rapidly growing sector of economy. Read More...
