no patents on seeds. Stop patents on plants and animals. The organisations behind No Patents On Seeds are especially concerned about increasing number of patents on plants, seeds and farm animals and their impact on farmers, breeders, innovation and biodiversity. These patents create new dependencies for farmers, breeders, food producers and consumers. These patents have to be regarded as misappropriation of basic resources in farm and food production and as general abuse of patent law. We call for an urgent re-think of European patent law in biotechnology and plant breeding and to support clear regulations that exclude from patentability processes for breeding, genetic material, plants and animals and food derived thereof. Monsanto soon to receive 30 European patents on food plants. has published an international call to European governments to stop patents on plants and animals.

*  Trademark infringement
Infringement may occur when one party, the "infringer", uses a trademark which is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark owned by another party, in relation to products or services which are identical or similar to the products or services which the registration covers. An owner of a trademark may commence civil legal proceedings against a party which infringes its registered trademark. In many countries but not in countries like the United States, which recognizes common law trademark rights, a trademark which is 'not' registered cannot be "infringed" as such, and the trademark owner cannot bring infringement proceedings. Where the respective marks or products or services are not identical, similarity will generally be assessed by reference to whether there is a 'likelihood of confusion' that consumers will believe the products or services originated from the trademark owner. Likelihood of confusion is not necessarily measured by actual consumer confusion, though normally one of the elements, but by...

*  Fair use (U.S. trademark law)
Fair use U.S. trademark law. Fair use U.S. trademark law. In the United States, trademark law includes a 'fair use' defense, sometimes called "'trademark fair use'" to distinguish it from the better-known fair use doctrine in copyright. Freedom of speech as guaranteed by the First Amendment is a premise for the fair use doctrine in both trademark and copyright law. Fair use is consistent with the more limited protection granted to trademarks, generally specific only to the particular product market and geographic area of the trademark owner. Most trademarks are adapted from words or symbols already common to the culture, as Apple, Inc. is from apple, instead of being invented by the mark owner such as Kodak. Courts have recognized that ownership in the mark cannot prevent others from using the word or symbol in these other senses, such as if the trademark is a descriptive word or common symbol such as a pine tree. This means that the less distinctive or original the trademark, the less able the trademark ow...

*  DEAD or Abandoned Trademarks
... What does a status of DEAD or abandoned mean. If a USPTO application or registration shows a status of DEAD or abandoned on TESS Trademark Electronic Search System, it means that specific application or registration is no longer under prosecution or pending within the USPTO, and would not be cited by a trademark examiner against an applicant. Regardless of the LIVE or DEAD status of an application or registration within the USPTO, the trademark owner may still claim common law rights in court or in an inter partes proceeding such as a Trademark Opposition of Trademark Cancellation. Here’s an example of an application APP1 that was refused and abandoned for failure to respond to refusals for likelihood of confusion with a registered mark REG1 containing the exact same first word, both for clothing sales. Had this applicant responded to the office action, this registration also would have been suspended because of likelihood of confusion with a earlier pending mark APP2 with exactly the same first word tha...

... Advertisement. YOU ARE HERE: LAT Home. Collections. Trademarks. California. Costa Mesa's QSC Loses Bose Trademark Appeal. June 19, 2002. From Bloomberg News. Bose Corp., maker of the "Wave" radio, persuaded a federal appeals court to block QSC Audio Products Inc. from registering as a trademark an amplifier system under the "PowerWave" name. In opposing the Costa Mesa firm's application, Bose said consumers would think the QSC product was made by Bose, which also sells the Acoustic Wave loudspeaker system. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Trademark Trial and Appeal Board had rejected Bose's complaint, saying confusion was unlikely. Reversing the board's ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said the Wave name should be given added protection under trademark laws, because it's famous even when not directly linked to the Bose name. "We're going to evaluate what our options are," said John Andrews, chief operating officer of QSC. "We don't have any intention of stopping use of the ...

(1/276) Disease gene patents: overcoming unethical constraints on clinical laboratory medicine.

The rapidly growing number of disease gene patents--patents that claim all methods for diagnosis of a particular genetic condition--threatens the ability of physicians to provide medical care to their patients. In the past, patented diagnostic tests were made broadly available to the medical community in the form of test kits or licenses to use the patented test. Disease gene tests, however, are being monopolized by a small number of providers. Monopolization of medical testing services: (a) threatens to restrict research activities; (b) creates unacceptable conflicts of interest; (c) may reduce patient access to testing; (d) may lead to inequitable extensions of patent terms on tests and related discoveries; and (e) grants to patent holders the ability to dictate the standard of care for testing, and to otherwise interfere with the practice of medicine. Because of the risks raised by monopolization, amendment of the patent law to require compulsory licensing of physicians providing medical services is recommended.  (+info)

(2/276) Essential drugs in the new international economic environment.

Recent global developments in the regulation of trade and intellectual property rights threaten to hinder the access of populations in developing countries to essential drugs. The authors argue for state intervention in the health and pharmaceutical markets in order to guarantee equitable access to these products.  (+info)

(3/276) The future of molecular genetic testing.

The potential applications for genetic testing are immense, with most diseases having some aspect influenced by, if not directly caused by, changes in the genome of the patient. The translation of genetic information into medical applications will be influenced by our understanding of the human genome, technological advances, and social, ethical, and legal issues surrounding genetic testing. With time, new genetic information will be translated into clinical tests for the diagnosis of current illness and prediction of future disease risk, and will be used for the development of genetically directed therapies and preventive interventions. Most genetic testing will be highly automated, with only rare genetic disease tests performed manually. The challenge for the clinical genetic laboratory is to keep pace with this information explosion to provide state-of-the-art genetic testing and to ensure that the genetic test results are used in a morally, ethically, and socially responsible way.  (+info)

(4/276) Pharmaceutical policies in Canada: another example of federal-provincial discord.

Pharmaceutical policy in Canada is set at both the federal and provincial levels of government. The federal government is responsible for intellectual property rights of manufacturers (patents) and the initial approval and labelling of prescription drugs and for ensuring overall market competitiveness. The provincial government has responsibility and jurisdiction over the funding of all health care services, including pharmaceuticals. Various interactions between the pharmaceutical industry, the federal and provincial governments and consumers have shaped the current landscape for prescription drugs in Canada. One key failing of the system is that the federal government is almost completely insulated from the impact of its policies because, although it regulates drug prices, it does not buy any drugs. In contrast, provincial governments have no jurisdiction over market competitiveness or pricing, yet end up paying for most of the drug expenditures incurred.  (+info)

(5/276) Effect of multiple-source entry on price competition after patent expiration in the pharmaceutical industry.

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the effect of multiple-source drug entry on price competition after patent expiration in the pharmaceutical industry. DATA SOURCES: Originators and their multiple-source drugs selected from the 35 chemical entities whose patents expired from 1984 through 1987. Data were obtained from various primary and secondary sources for the patents' expiration dates, sales volume and units sold, and characteristics of drugs in the sample markets. STUDY DESIGN: The study was designed to determine significant factors using the study model developed under the assumption that the off-patented market is an imperfectly segmented market. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: After patent expiration, the originators' prices continued to increase, while the price of multiple-source drugs decreased significantly over time. By the fourth year after patent expiration, originators' sales had decreased 12 percent in dollars and 30 percent in quantity. Multiple-source drugs increased their sales twofold in dollars and threefold in quantity, and possessed about one-fourth (in dollars) and half (in quantity) of the total market three years after entry. CONCLUSION: After patent expiration, multiple-source drugs compete largely with other multiple-source drugs in the price-sensitive sector, but indirectly with the originator in the price-insensitive sector. Originators have first-mover advantages, and therefore have a market that is less price sensitive after multiple-source drugs enter. On the other hand, multiple-source drugs target the price-sensitive sector, using their lower-priced drugs. This trend may indicate that the off-patented market is imperfectly segmented between the price-sensitive and insensitive sector. Consumers as a whole can gain from the entry of multiple-source drugs because the average price of the market continually declines after patent expiration.  (+info)

(6/276) Pending resolution: the question of who owns DNA.

With the emergence of the Human Genome Project and its private counterparts, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has begun receiving applications for the patenting of genes and genetic sequences. Earlier patent decisions regarding similar scientific advances limited patents to organisms "made by the hand of man," which would seem to remove discovered genes from patent protection. But many applicants have been successful in attaining patents for genes based on their ability to demonstrate the ultimate utility of the gene, for instance in medicine. One controversy regarding genomic patenting, however, is that patents apparently have been granted for mere gene fragments devoid of much demonstrable utility. Furthermore, critics fear that gene patenting will retard research by squelching scientists' ability to share findings freely.  (+info)

(7/276) Patenting human genetic material: refocusing the debate.

The biotechnology industry has become firmly established over the past twenty years and gene patents have played an important part in this phenomenon. However, concerns have been raised over the patentability of human genetic material, through public protests and international statements, but to little effect. Here we discuss some of these concerns, the patent authorities' response to them, and ways in which to address these issues and to move the debate forward using current legal structures.  (+info)

Persuasive Essay Topic HELP?


I have to write a persuasive essay for my grade 12 English class but can't decide on a topic, I have a few in mind, so please ether pick one of my ideas or try and give me your own.
PLEASE NOTHING ABOUT ABORTIONS OR GENERIC THINGS LIKE THAT.

1. Does plastic surgery help you or ruin you?
2. Why atheists have to be tolerant to religion, while religious people are not tolerant to atheists?
3. Vegetarians vs. Meateaters
4. Prove that blondes are actually smart.
5. What do you think about gay marriages?

Thanks.
----------

Don't do topic number four. It is a very weak topic about stereotypes which is suited for a 10th grade (At max.) essay.

The other four are good topics to pick but personally number two would be hard to get good, solid examples for. One is a little simple for a 12th grade essay.

So of your topics I think three and five are both excellent choices.

3. You could do how each choice affects human health, how the animals are treated and slaughtered, (and if it is humane), and how it effects the environment.

5. How love is love, discrimination, that while you do not need to get married in a church you could still have some type of ceremony (or how any ceremony is insulting to the church), this could bring up human rights and the separation of church and state.

Suggestions:
1. Animal testing-Is it worth it?

2. Drinking-Should the drinking age be lowered to 18?

3. Universal Heathcare-Is it good to raise taxes to support the unfortunate (This pertains more if you are American)

4. Death penalty- Should it be abolished?

5. Dropping Out- Should the age be raised? Should drop outs be required to complete some type of further education? (I.e. vocational/Tech school)

Pick something that makes you feel something strong. For example if the idea of eating meat makes you barf, pick that. Anything that makes you feel passionate will be easier to talk about. (And don't forget you must write one paragraph about the other side!)


The most controversial topics?


I'm just looking for a discussion here. Not really looking for anyone to get nasty just posting an outlet for people to share there opinions. What do you all think about the following topics...
Breastfeeding/bottle-feeding
circumcision
co-sleeping
SAHM/working mothers
spanking (not babies of course)
the cry it out method

Do you agree/disagree and to what extent do you take to these things? Meaning when you see someone that doesn't agree with you do you think "to each their own" or "this person is a horrible parent"?
----------

When it comes to all these topics, I have my opinion on them, but how others choose to raise their kids is their business and I will never attack someone for making the decisions they do.  I get very angry however when others feel the need to attack someone who doesnt do things the way they do or think they are far superior parents for making the choices they do.  Being judgemental parents often leads to raising judgemental children and I would rather have a formula fed baby or a circumcised son then a judgemental child who grows up into a judgemental adult...not good.  Now as for as my opinion on each

Breastfeeding/bottle-feeding:  whatever works for the mother and baby is what I feel is best.  I bottle feed but I do not look down on those who breastfeed, I do not make comments to those breastfeeding in public and I expect the same respect when I am bottle feeding my child.  

Circumcision:  again, whatever works.  I would personally circumcise my son, but I dont think its necessary.  My husband is circumcised and so I would want my son done as well.

co-sleeping:  I would never co-sleep as it is not safe for use to do so however as long as parents are doing it as safely as possible then I dont see a problem with it.  I just hate listening to some parents whine that their child wont sleep in their own bed after having co-slept for a lengthy period of time.  To me thats something they should expect and read up on how to deal with it before making the decision to co-sleep

SAHM/working moms:  if you can afford to be a SAHM the thats awesome...who better to raise their kids then the parents...but this isnt possible for all families and as long as proper child care is arranged and the parents spend as much of their "free time" with their kids as possible then there is nothing wrong with working moms. I will eventually need to go back to work, but I am spending the first year home with my daughter

Spanking:  this I dont agree with because parents are always teaching their kids its not ok to hit yet spanking is hitting your child.  It sends a mixed message and isnt necessary.  

CIO:  not something I would do, but if it works for the family and the child is not being neglected then who am I to judge their methods.

I personally think mothers need to spend more time supporting eachother then criticizing eachothers methods.  It often makes me laugh when some women go all out on here bashing formula feeding and whatever else.  To me they bash other moms to make themselves feel better about their parenting skills that they are questioning.


Can i patent a type of clothing?


I have an idea for a new type of clothing which I believe will be very popular. Without getting into specifics, I would take 2 types of material which are already on the market and use them together in a way which (to my knowledge) has never been done before. I am hoping to create a proof of concept and patent the design and ultimately sell the idea to a major clothing manufacturer. I am not familiar with patent laws, so I am hoping someone can tell me if this is a patentable idea or not?

Thanks

You can't patent "ideas" you can only patent inventions.  Yes a combination of 2 known things can be patentable.  The fact that the 2 other things are patented does not matter.  However, you would have to buy the 2 things from the patent holders or their licensees or become a licensee yourself in order to make your thing.

To get a patent for something it has to be new and not obvious.  So...if its obvious to put the 2 things together, you will have trouble getting a patent.

Clothing is patentable...

hot topic....for punks?


is hot topic rly for goths only?
cuz rite now i think tht other ppl are shopping there cuz of twilight.
i personally dont think preps should be shopping there. but thts just my opinion. 

also im not even rly punk or w/e. i still wear hollister. i just like hot topics shirts, makeup, belts, bags, jeans, and twilight stuff.

i just wanna know if u think hot topic is a store JUST for punks. or if other ppl can n go in there.
----------

oh my f***ing god to that first answer.
hot topic isn't scary. get over yourself.

hot topic is in NO way a store only for punks. however, "punk" people generally find the stuff that hot topic sells appealing. i personally hate it when i see a preppy twilight fan go in there only to buy twilight stuff and then skip right out like "YESS. i shopped at hot topic and didn't get shot or approached with drugs!" don't get me wrong, i'm a twilight fan, but that just sort of bugs me haha. posers.

other people should go in there if they can find stuff in there that they enjoy. like the cds or band shirts or makeup or w/e. people that go in there with scared expressions on their face like that jonas brother lover who answered first need to gtfo immediately.
sorry, that's my opinion. they shouldn't judge the store.


Hot topic and goths???


I am just wondering who here reading this thinks that goths are nicer than preps?
In my opinion, goth people can be a lot more nicer than people in abercrombie or aeropostale, for example. 
Who here agrees with my opinion?
P.S: Hot Topic is not only a goth store- it is a MUSIC store. Also, it is a store with television brands. They have stuff from hello kitty and foster's home for imaginary friends in there!
ANother P:S- My favorite is Invader ZIM and GIR! :D
----------

Goths and preps aren't really different from each other, they just dress differently and have different interests, I guess. They are all still annoying people with annoying problems. Anyhoo, adding to your observation, the people at Hot Topic are some of the nicest, most helpful workers I have seen in the mall. They always help me find music and give me great recommendations. Abercrombie just scares me, it's even darker than Hot Topic! Goths aren't nicer as I whole, it just really depends on who you talk to. There are nasty and nice people on both sides. I just get along with the people at HT better because I feel more comfortable with them. Those sales clerks can smell fear, and when they smell fear, they like to prey on poor innocent customers, I swear! Maybe that is happening to you at Abercrombie and Aeropostale.

And you are right, they sell music, graphic tees, and accessories, not just "goth" attire. I practically live at Hot Topic, it is a heaven to shoppers like me. Their products are really unique and fun, they never bore me! And the atmosphere at Hot Topic is really nice as well, I love the dark cave feeling it gives. HT is awesome.

-SK <3


are there any other stores like hot topic?


does anybody no if theres any other stores kinda like hot topic cus now like a bunch of peoples no about hot topic like the little gangsters and its really annoyin so ya are ther any stores like hot topic that are kinda unknown
----------

Torrid is like hot topic but for plus sizes  
Hope this helps


abercrombie vs. hot topic?


okay i have to do a contrast essay for english and i'm doing it over abercrombie and fitch and hot topic.
so, which do you pick - abercrombie or hot topic?
also, leave any comments you have about the stores [quality of clothes, fit, atmosphere, attitude, etc.]
thanksssss :]
----------

I would pick Abercrombie & Fitch over Hot Topic.

Here's my thoughts on the two:


Abercrombie:
They have cute clothes.
They have music there and clothes there for almost everyone.
Their sizes run widely.
The quality of their clothes is great, if you buy something there, you know it's gonna last a long time.
If you know your size, it's always gonna fit the same as the other size. (exampe: Two size smalls are actually the same fit on a person that wears size small)
Their store is very clean and modern. The music in the background is something we all like normally.
The store style is unique and creative. I love the babydoll tops and the skinny jeans theree.
The store helpers are very assistive and polite at every Abercrombie I've been to.

Hot Topic:
Their clothes are nice for some, but mostly just scary.
Their clothes are NOT for everyone because they're basically for Emos, goths, and scenes.
The music is all depressing or metal rock.
Their sizes aren't as wide as Abercrombie.
The quality of their clothes isn't as good as Abercrombie. I got a shirt there once and it became thin after two times wearing it and it ripped VERY EASILY.
All my expieriences with their clothes are like that.
My sister got two size mediums there at the same store and one was wayy bigger and one was wayy smaller. They label the sizes wrong.
The store people are crazy and scary and make people wanna leave rather than buy.

The atmosphere creates a scary gloomy place.
Too much black.
Too many skulls.

Hope this helps!! <33


HOT TOPIC jean sizes?


I'm 4'11'' and I'm really skinny, I wear like size 12 jeans (in kid sizes because I'm 14 and short).
I want to buy Hot Topic skinny jeans http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/store/product.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302028387&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442190036&bmUID=1228965988142 but I don't know if they will fit and Hot Topic doesn't have stores...
So do you think I'll fit into a size zero?? THANKS!!!!!!!
----------

Hot Topic has around 600 stores in the US. 

Yes, really. Check the store finder on the website to see if there is one near you.  


Take a look at the size charts on hottopic.com. Usually there is a link right on the item page to the size charts. Then get your mom or a friend to measure you. For pants you'll need your hip measurment,  your inseam, and maybe your waist. The size chart should show you where to measure, but usually the hips are measured around the widest part of your hips/butt. 

Now take your measurements and match them to the measurements shown on the chart. You should be able to find your size. If your measurements are too small for a zero, then they will be too big. If you're pretty close or in the right range then they will fit. 

Also you can return regular priced merchandise from the Hot Topic website to a Hot Topic store near you if it doesn't fit. Just take the receipt that comes in your package with you to the store if you need to exchange/return.
