How To Be Compensated For Personal Injury

How To Be Compensated For Personal Injury

You can definitely expect to be compensated for personal injury under certain circumstances. Your employer or his insurer will be responsible for compensating you for any injury sustained while you are at work, performing your regular tasks. You will also be entitled to compensation if, while driving, someone rammed into you, resulting in a vehicular accident. That person responsible will compensate you. Injury could also be sustained while innocently walking close to a construction site and falling debris or objects hit you. The developer or his insurer would be liable for the injury and other damages. Aside from those mentioned, there are still so many other instances where you can claim compensation for personal injuries.

One thing you have to keep in mind is the fact that, in many cases, compensation for personal injury is not given voluntarily. You have to get the people involved compelled (typically by the courts) to compensate you. It is not really something that they would do of their own accord or free will.

Frequently, you would even need the police to be around from the beginning to make your case stronger. The moment you get injured at …

Software Patents And Business Method Patents Still Possible After Bilski Supreme Court Decision

Software Patents And Business Method Patents Still Possible After Bilski Supreme Court Decision

Previously, the Federal Circuit reviewed a decision of the Board of Patent Appeals in which the Board had sustained a rejection of all eleven of Bilski’s claims under 35 U.S.C. 101 as not directed to patent-eligible subject matter. The Federal Circuit affirmed, holding that Bilski’s claims were not statutory under 35 U.S.C. 101.

Bilski’s patent application claimed a method of hedging risk in commodities trading.

The Supreme Court on June 28, 2010 affirmed the invalidity of Bilski’s claims. The Supreme Court declined to generally invalidate software patents and instead held that the Federal Circuit’s Machine-or-Transformation test is not the exclusive test to determining if a method is statutory.

The Supreme Court noted that Section 101 specifies four independent categories of inventions or discoveries that are patent eligible: “process[es],” “machine[es],” “manufactur[es],” and “composition[s] of matter.” The Supreme Court noted that they had stated in their earlier decision of Diamond v. Chakrabarty, 447 U.S. 303 that in choosing such expansive terms, Congress plainly contemplated that the patent laws would be given wide scope in order to ensure that ingenuity should receive a liberal encouragement. The Court’s precedents provide three …

Who Owns The Copyright of Work Created By A Contractor? A Trap For The Unwary

Who Owns The Copyright of Work Created By A Contractor? A Trap For The Unwary

It’s really basic: ownership of the copyright in work a business pays for can often be critical for successful commercialization of that work. Unfortunately, the U.S. Copyright contains arcane provisions that will often produce a counter intuitive result – leaving full copyright ownership with the contractor. How could this possibly be?? Internet attorneys, advisors and businesses cannot afford not to be aware of the applicable laws.

BACKGROUND:

When copyrightable work is created by an employee, the work can become the property of the employer in one of two ways: either by qualifying as a “work made for hire” as defined in Section 101 of the U.S. Copyright Act or by having the employee assign the work to the employer.

A “work made for hire” can be created by an employee or by an independent contractor. If created by an employee within the scope of his or her employment, then all such work is automatically owned by the employer as a “work made for hire.” No written agreement or mention in an employee manual is required, though this may be recommended.

HOWEVER, when work is created …

Freedome of Expression Rights vs. The Trademark Act

Freedome of Expression Rights vs. The Trademark Act The freedom of expression is an important right enshrined in S. 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The Trade-marks Act protects the right to protect your registered trademark against depreciation from others making use of that mark. There can be friction and tension when these two rights conflict.

Canadian courts have had to deal with these conflicts several times to determine whether free speech trumps the rights of a trademark holder. For example in Source Perrier SA v Fira-Less Marketing Co, (1983) 70 CPR 2d 61, Fira-Less sold Pierre Eh! carbonated bottled water, and claimed that it was a parody of then-Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. Source Perrier successfully obtained an injunction against Fira-Less. The court in this case said: “[t]he most liberal interpretation of ‘freedom of expression’ does not embrace the freedom to depreciate the goodwill of registered trademarks, nor does it afford a licence to impair the business integrity of the owner of the marks merely to accommodate the creation of a spoof.”

In the later case Michelin v CAW Canada, (1996) 71 CPR (3d) 348, the court drew a distinction between commercial and non-commercial use when in …
