Welcome to the first video in Omni Legal Group’s series on intellectual property law. My name is Omid and I’m a patent attorney and the principal of an intellectual property law firm called Omni Legal Group. We’re here in Silicon Valley at one of Club Sportive’s beautiful California locations to talk about two subjects that are close to my heart: intellectual property and exotic cars. One thing that might surprise you as I open up the hood of this Tesla P100D is that you will find that there is no engine inside. And this brings us to the intellectual part of intellectual property law. The reason why there is no engine under the hood is that the inventors at Tesla have figured out a way to replace the internal combustion engine with a battery. This takes us to the property side of intellectual property. The way these inventors protect their inventions are by filing applications that allow them to put a legal fence around their ideas and establish which inventions are theirs. The reason why we do this is that occasionally people will take the Porsche crest or Cadillac emblem and put them on products that did not originate from Porsche or Cadillac. Using intellectual property law, we can establish how this trespass has taken place and take the necessary legal precautions to make sure that it doesn’t happen again. There are different kinds of intellectual property for protecting different kinds of ideas. Trademarks are used to protect brands like Ferrari, Porsche or McLaren. Patents are used to protect some of their inventions like the amazing engine chassis and suspension designs. We are going to get into all of these in much more detail later on in the series. For now, it is important that you understand that there are differences and we want to make sure you have enough information to make the most informed decisions when it comes to protecting your intellectual property. So whether it be a 500 horsepower rampaging bull or the solution to a thousand year old problem that nobody has thought of before. Whether it is a one hundred year old brand that is steeped in tradition or a startup company you began last week. Our goal is to help you make the most informed decisions when it comes to protecting your intellectual property. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Club Sportiva for opening their clubhouse to us today.

Until next time, I’m Omid with the Omni Legal Group and I’ll see you in the next video.
