VLP Partner Jeremy Cubert Author’s IPWatchdog Article “How to Create Patent Rights”

Posted on Aug 7, 2017 in News by Jeremy A. Cubert

VLP Intellectual Property Partner Jeremy Cubert penned the article “How to Create Patent Rights” for IPWatchdog.

In the article, Mr. Cubert writes that intellectual property is distinguished from “real property” (such as land) because the property itself exists in our heads and needs to be “created” through a process of description and examination. If approved and granted, this property is described in a proxy form such as a patent, copyright registration, or trademark registration. You cannot walk the property line of your patent or plant a garden in your copyright registration. To get a patent, you have to create.

Mr. Cubert goes on to describe the steps that must be taken to create a patent and what can be done once a patent is obtained, including the various aspects of patent rights.
