What Are Proprietary Rights?
Proprietary rights, also known as property rights, are the theoretical or legal rights that an entity has to own property, whether tangible or intangible. Property rights are some of the most basic rights in a free society. They give individuals the right to accumulate, own, hold, delegate, rent, or sell their property. Within economics, property rights form the basis for all market exchange, and they don't always refer only to what's lawful. They might also refer to what is ethical or moral.
The definition of property is expansive. Property can include physical resources, land, non-human creatures, and intellectual property.
Who has the right to what property isn't always clear. If you own a car and the title is in your name, you have property rights to that car. Not every case of property rights is this clear-cu

What is Trademark Status?
The Trademark Status check allows applicants and registrants to check the status of their trademarks. The United States Patent and Trademark Office manages this tool. The Trademark Status and Document Retrieval (TSDR) System allows users to view, download, and print relevant information about their application and registration status. It is also a crucial instrument to ensure that companies and trademark attorneys do not miss important filing or registration deadlines.
The USPTO's Trademarks database is a searchable website, displaying the full text of related documents. The TSDR 1.0 version launched in 2011 and later updated to version 2.0. It now also has a downloadable application. The system is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
