Patent Pending San Diego - ICIPLAW - San Diego Patent Attorney

Protection of Patent and Trademark

Patent and Trademark registration is your best protection from infringement. If you have created a new idea you feel may need a patent, or, you have a unique symbol or trademark which identifies your product and consider it valuable!

Jury verdict gives Facebook victory in patent case!

McLEAN, Va. (AP) - Facebook successfully defended itself against a lawsuit that claimed the social media company infringed on patents held by a Dutch programmer who launched a website called "Surfbook" more than a decade ago.

A holding company called Rembrandt Social Media had alleged that a now-deceased Dutch computer programmer, Joannes Van Der Meer, developed and patented methods for running a Web-based personal diary before Facebook came into existence in 2003. But Van Der Meer's website, Surfbook, never got off the ground.

What say you San Diego!
