Is it necessary to register the trademark of my open source project?

BY Mèo juna IN , , , , No comments


Generally, a trademark is necessary for all companies and businesses. However, the registration of a trademark obviously is not a primary objective when a company starts operating. It is advisable to do so as soon as the company/project starts bringing sufficient profit. If you wish to save your right to a brand name it would be a rational decision.


Why trademark?

-You wish to be able to take legal action against anyone who uses your brand without your permission, including counterfeiters.

-You want to put the R symbol next to your brand to show that it’s yours and warn others against using it.

-You want to have the possibility to sell and license your brand.

-You aim to increase your sales. Branded products sell, and they sell for more.

Our company can help you to register your trademark. AntLawyers is designed to simplify international trademark registration for business owners and to provide them with the cost-effective way to protect their trademarks internationally.

If you steal someone else business idea and start your own company, what is the worst thing that can happen?

BY Mèo juna IN , , , , , No comments


Well, to answer your questions, I’m going to say hypothetically that “you” stole something that was legally protected in some way (be it via patenttrademarkcopyright, signing an NDA, or the likes).

Can they successfully stop you from operating your business? Yes, they have options that could put “you” out of business. If you’ve violated their legally protected rights to certain items (their trademarked name, their copy-protected material, their patented goods, or business processes from a former employer after you signed an NDA and it is still within the legal timeframe), they can exercise their options (cease and desist letters, lawsuit for an injunction to stop you plus damages) under the law.


Can they sue you? Yes, they can, but whether or not they will sue you is a different story. Keep in mind two things: they must first elect to exercise their rights and they’re probably going to wait until it is profitable to sue “you.”

What are the consequences? That depends on what, if anything, that they can prove in court that you did to violate their intellectual property rights.

In all honesty, if you or someone you know have found yourself with a legal threat of a lawsuit because of intellectual property, you should consult with a lawyer experienced in the area. The laws related to intellectual property can be complex and it isn’t something that you should do on your own (and you could get advice on whether what happened was actually a legal issue).

According to Vietnam Law on Credit Institution, and Circular 07/2015/TT-NHNN on bank guarantee, bank guarantee refers to a type of credit whereby the guarantor undertakes to act on behalf of the obligor to fulfill their financial obligations to the obligee in the event the obligor fails to fulfill or insufficiently fulfill their agreed-upon obligations to the obligee; the obligor must take on their debt obligations and repay the guarantor.
Guarantee commitment is the written document issued by the guarantor or the counter-guarantee issuing party or the guarantee-confirmation issuing party.
Letter of guarantee refers to the written commitment between the guarantor and the obligee to the guarantor’s fulfilling the financial obligation on behalf of the obligor in the event the obligor fails to fulfill or insufficiently fulfill agreed-upon obligations to the obligee.
To avoid confusion of bank, it is common to issue non conditional and irrevocable bank guarantee.  Having said that, the bank will release payment upon the first request from the obligee without the obligations to verify any contract non-performance.
