Intellectual Property: What Is It?

"Intellectual property (IP) is, quite simply, the opposite of tangible property—it is anything you can't see, touch, smell or hear and therefore quantify. Intellectual property consists of copyright, patent, trade-mark and trade secret law."

In this article is a discussion each on the following topics: copyright, patents, trademarks, industrial design and trade secrets. The last section will deal with cyberspace and how intellectual property can and should be protected for your website. To read the full article, please follow the link.

Tip Of The Month

What Should You Do If Someone Already Owns the Domain Name You Want?

  1. Buy the name from them
    A lot depends on why someone registered the name that you want. Speculators, sometimes reserve domain names in order to sell them to the highest bidder. Firms may buy domain names simply because they want to establish legitimate Web sites or online businesses. If someone is using a domain name and doesn't want to sell it, you may have no choice but to choose another name.

  2. Settle on a different name

  3. Court Ruling
    Sometimes courts have ruled that trademark holders can claim certain domain names, regardless of whether someone else bought the name first. If ABC Industries comes across another business that owns, for example, it might take action to seize control of the name. You may or may not be able to claim a domain name in this manner, depending on the type of name and how the current owner is using it.

If you can't register a coveted .com domain name, look into registering your name with a .net or .org extension, or even register it with a two-letter national extension. For example, you can register a domain with Canada's .ca extension. Keep in mind that there are certain Canadian presence requirements in order to use the .ca extension. For more information, see the Canadian Internet Registration Authority Web site.

Dear Sue Studios!

I am so pleased with the result of your web design for my new web site. It is so harmonic, so well organized and works like a charm. I am already getting VERY good feedback from both old customers, new visitors, new customers and friends. They all love it!

It has also been a great pleasure to work with you during this process and I am recommending you to anyone who has an existing web site and of course for people who wants a brand new web site from scratch.

I have also been impressed by the other web sites designed by Sue Studios and now I am also very impressed by my own new web site.

Thank you so very much to you Susan Chepelsky, :-)

Warm regards

Mikael Lund
