What’s the Problem? No, really. (5/17/2022) - I recently read an article about the “Milk Carton Rule.”  The story goes that if a person keeps leaving a bottle of milk out, stop expecting them to do otherwise. Once you do that, you will “solve the real problem” and buy a second bottle of milk so you always have non-spoiled milk.  The article ... Read more
That’s a (click)Wrap (5/10/2022) - Who has time to read those pesky terms and conditions anyway? As it turns out…they are worth paying attention to, particularly if you are in a position to be writing them or using them on a website. If you are a new business owner starting up a website, terms and conditions should matter to you. ... Read more

What’s the Deal with 501(c)(3)’s? (Part 1) (4/26/2022) - Non-profit organizations, by their nature, provide great value through their missions and services. That is at least part of the reason why they typically receive tax-exempt status, including under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). However, that tax-exempt status is fragile and contingent on meeting and maintaining certain requirements, and an organization can ... Read more

Marijuana Legalization: Closer Than it’s Ever Been, But Still a Ways Away (4/12/2022) - I’m sure you’ve heard the news – the House of Representatives passed the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act on Friday April 1, 2022. The bill, if enacted, would remove marijuana (delta-9 THC) from the controlled substances list, impose a 5% tax on the sale of marijuana products nationwide, and provide mechanisms for the expungement of previous ...

So What Is The Difference? (4/5/2022) - Last week I talked about how clients say they don’t know the difference between trademarks and copyrights.  Then I didn’t explain what it was.  I am here to solve that issue. A trademark is something that customers use to help with things like: “Hey, I bought that thingy before, and I liked it.  I want ... Read more
The Information Desk Is Two Way (3/29/2022) - At the first meeting with a potential client, they often (somewhat shamefacedly) say, “I’m not really sure if I need a trademark or copyright or something else. I guess that I don’t know the difference.”  They say it like of course, they should know the difference. Why wouldn’t they know? I mean everyone but them ... Read more

How to Protect a Trademark as Collateral on a Loan (Part 2) (3/15/2022) - Welcome back to the world of Secured Transactions and IP! A quick refresher from last week (link last week’s post?): lenders engage in “secured transactions” with a borrower who has put up collateral against that loan which has become enforceable. The lender can possess and sell that collateral if the borrower defaults should that lender ... Read more
