Welcome! You have found, or more likely stumbled upon, what we hope is a practical and informative blog about intellectual property and related issues. While we, the writers of this blog (or at least some of us), enjoy engaging in legal banter and esoteric aspects of patent, trademark, and trade secret law, at times we’ve noticed a lack of practical content directed at inventors, managers and entrepreneurs who are looking to be better informed about intellectual property issues that affect their everyday business – without feeling the need to go to law school.
Through The IP Stone, we hope to decipher complex information about intellectual property laws, rights, and protections and engage in interesting and straightforward conversations about problems and questions that regularly arise for businesses related to patents, trademarks, trade secrets and other forms of IP rights. We’ll also attempt to have fun, infuse humor, and comment on current events that involve IP – at least tangentially.
Please feel free to comment or ask questions regarding anything you read on the site. We look forward to hearing from you.
