Can I sue for $30,000 of expenses that I incurred because of the withdrawal of an accepted employment offer?

Q & A with Dr. Dariush Adli, President of ADLI Law Group:
Q: Can I sue for damages that I incurred because of withdrawal of an accepted employment offer? I recently accepted a job in another city (within California). A formal offer was made, both in person at our final interview, and later in a follow-up letter. I accepted the offer. I proceeded to give two weeks of notice at my old job, sign a new 1-year lease at a home near the new job, and move everything I own into this home. Four days prior to the start date at my new job my new employer rescinded the job offer completely. I had no employment contract, and one would be abnormal for my profession. I realize California is an at-will state and it is legal to withdraw an employment offer even after it has been accepted. However, I did incur significant expenses (and will continue to incur) in the form of lost wages at my previous job, and from moving. My new employer knew that I was moving and knew all these expenses were being incurred. My expenses are over $30K.

A: Yes, from the description you provide, you would have a claim for breach of contract and can seek recovery of the damages you have incurred. However, before proceeding, you should contact a business attorney and employment attorney who can evaluate your case and advise you accordingly.

Should I get an attorney to file my trademark application or should I do it myself?

Q&A with Dr. Dariush Adli, President of ADLI Law Group:

Q: What is the cost to trademark a business name with United States Trademark and Patent Office? I don't have a business license yet, however I do own the domain name. I want to register a business name with USPTO. TESS search comes up clear, so the business name is available. I called around and prices vary wildly. One attorney wanted $1,800, another $1,400, and another wanted $800. It?s my understanding the USPTO filing fee is only $275. LegalZoom and trademarkengine.com offer very reasonable pricing to file with USPTO on my behalf. My company will be a tech company (platform) for a certain industry. It's pretty straightforward in my opinion. Should I get an attorney to file for me, or do it online myself?

A: Short Answer: YES, There are two stages to a trademark procurement process. 1) preparation and filing of the application; and 2) prosecution (getting the application through the PTO). The first process involves a search, filing fees, preparation and filing of the application. Assuming that the search does not turn up marks that are potentially confusingly similar, the prosecution should be fairly straight forward. However, trademark rights are acquired NOT by registration, but by usage of the mark in trade and commerce. Unregistered users own "Common Law" rights in their mark. A common law trademark trumps a later registration BUT is limited to the geographic area of its usage. If the search (which must include an effort at identifying common law marks as well as registered marks) does not turn up confusingly similar marks, OR a common law owner of a confusingly similar mark does not object to issuance, then you should not have a problem during the prosecution phase. Otherwise, the examiner will likely issue a ?likelihood of confusion? rejection, which will be expensive to respond to. Your focus on keeping the costs down is understandable in the general sense of being efficient and frugal, but is misplaced because you don?t want to nickel and dime what is potentially the most valuable asset of your business.

Does the Copyright Office give applicants a chance to make corrections?

Q & A with Dr. Dariush Adli , President of ADLI Law Group:
Q: Will the Copyright Office reject my application because I left the ?Work Made for Hire? field blank? I completed my copyright registration application and in the field marked, "Author," I put all of my information, but didn't mark "No" under "Work Made for Hire." Will my application be rejected on that basis? Or, will they assume that it's "no" since I didn't mark "yes"? Does the Copyright Office give applicants a chance to make corrections?

A: Short Answer: They won't assume that the answer is No. The copyright officer examining your application will most likely notice to missing selection and will most likely contact you to obtain the missing information. Although the officer has discretion to bounce the application as incomplete. You could also try to withdraw your application, although that may not be necessary under the circumstances of your case. You can consult a Los Angeles copyright attorney to get more information on your options.

Can I patent a way of selling?

Q & A with Dr. Dariush Adli, President of ADLI Law Group:

Q: Can you patent a way of selling? Can you patent a way or new method that isn?t currently being used? For example, if we could only buy furniture in cash because that was the normal thing to do and someone came up with the idea of financing furniture. Can that idea be protected?

A: Short Answer: Yes. In concept, an invention is eligible for patent protection, if it meets the three basic conditions of utility (meaning the invention is more than an abstract idea); novelty (meaning the invention is new and not done before); and non-obvious (i.e., there are meaningful differences between the invention and what came before it). After a period of uncertainty, it is now clear that business method patents are eligible for patent protection. You need to consult with a patent attorney who will evaluate and analyze your business method and advise you accordingly.
