What is a patent citation search?
A patent citation search is a patent search of the titles that legally protect inventions from infringement and describe in detail how these inventions look and work based on the references they provide. You can search for patent citations on their own or use a patent citation search to enhance a keyword or classification search.

The United States Trademark Office (USPTO) grants patents within the United States to original, innovative, functional, and useful patent applications.
Outside the United States, patents are issued by other government bodies including:
- The European Patent Office (EPO)

When Do You Need Permission to Use a Logo?
A logo or trademark is any photograph, word, or symbol used to identify a brand, service, or product. You need permission to use a logo unless it is for editorial or information purposes, such as when a logo is used in a written article or being used as part of a comparative product statement.

To get permission, write a letter to the trademark owner. Include a description of why you are asking and how the logo will be used. Third parties should never use someone else's logo without a licensed agreement, including program and corporate logos.
In certain cases, a person or company involved in logo programs give third parties standing permissi
What Is Intellectual Property?
Intellectual property (IP) is a general term for the rights recognized by U.S. law for creations of the mind, including:
Patents - rights granted to inventors for novel and useful inventions.
Trademarks - rights granted to businesses relating to the branding of their goods and services (company, product and service names).
Copyrights - rights granted to authors for tangible expressions of ideas (art, literature, music, software code, architectural plans).
Trade secrets - rights granted to businesses relating to their unique and valuable intangible assets (business processes, client and customer lists, procedures, practices, formulae, research notes, market data).
Types of Patents
Copyrights, trademarks, patents, and licenses are each a different form of intellectual property (IP) rights protection recognized by U.S. law. The distinctions among them can be subtle and often the same product or service may involve more than one of these IP rights. How can you tell them apart when deciding how to protect your company’s assets? Here’s how.
Copyright protects the rights of “authors” in their original creative works. Copyrightable works include artistic creations, like novels, paintings, films, and songs, but also business-related works like software code, website designs, architectural drawings, marketing reports, and product manuals.
The author of a copyrighted work has the exclusive right to:
