Terms of Use

Trademarks

In the creation of a business, one must be especially careful not to violate any trademarks being used by other people or companies. In 1976, the Lanham act defined a trademark as a “work, name, symbol, devise, or other designation, or a combination of such designations, that is distinctive of a person’s goods or services and that is used in a manner that identifies and distinguishes them from the goods or services of others” [(15 U.S.C., Sec. 1127 (2000)]. Our company, A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health, will have a website and brand that can be seen by essentially anyone in the world, so our trademark must fit this widespread availability appropriately. In order to insure compliance with the law, all trademarks and trade names will conform to the legal naming factors. These factors take into consideration the strength of the trademark, if it is “confusingly similar” to other trademarks of companies that produce similar goods or services, the existence of wrongful intent, and the duration of the period in which the defendant used the mark without actual confusion. If A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health ever is the subject of a trademark infringement case, the plaintiff would need to prove either an actual loss of profits or the potential for such a loss immediately resulting from the infringement. Securing and registering our trademarks in advance with the pertinent governmental office will alleviate such trademark liability.

On a slightly different note, the possibility exists for a case of trademark dilution. This could occur if A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health used a trademark or likeness of a considerably famous company, and the use of such a trademark either blurred or tarnished the trademark’s meaning or value. In the case of trademark dilution, the plaintiff is not responsible for proving an immediate likelihood of confusion, nor do the two companies need to operate in the same line of business. To prevent this from occurring, A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health will uphold high ethical standards, use likenesses with permission, and give trademark owners the opportunity to notify us if any infringing material is found to be presented by the company.

Finally, A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health could be accused of the wrongful registration of a domain name if our website was confusingly similar to that of a website or company already in operation. The plaintiff would need to prove that our use of the domain name was not legitimate and constituted “bad faith” use, generally indicating the intent simply to purchase a domain name in order to auction it off for a profit later. Since this is not the case and all governmental records have been checked both at the state and federal level, there should be no such liability held by the company.

Because A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health is not a generic mark, or a common phrase used to describe a number of things, the trademark “A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health” has received recognition by the state of Rhode Island, and would be likely to receive protection by the USPTO from possible infringers.

Copyrights

By definition, copyrights are intended to protect “original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression.” In the case of A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health, this concept is applicable in terms of the company website content, digital content, business plan, and promotional materials.  The website itself could be considered an original creative work, and therefore has earned the right to protection under federal copyright law. Copyright law does not require that the content in question be used in commerce, but in the case of the A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health website, the site is used as the primary means of earning revenue, and is therefore crucial to the company’s success. If A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health obtains a copyright for its web content, the rights will be valid for seventy years beyond the life of the creator. During this time, the website can only be used in accordance with the terms of “fair use,” which state that public copying of content from any company copyrighted materials should be non-commercial, informative, limited in relation to the content of the entire document or site, and should not cause any reduction in the potential or actual value of the website to the A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health company. The company has exclusive rights to display and distribute the website and other materials to the general public, and any violation of these rights can end in a lawsuit to reestablish proper use of the site.

Patents

Patents, at first glance, may seem somewhat unrelated to the A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health concept. To most Americans, a patent is simply the protection of a physical concrete invention. However, the concept can also be applied to any idea that is novel, useful, and non-obvious to the average person. Stated very simply, a patent forbids other people and companies from providing a patented good or service to the public for twenty years from the date that the patent application is filed. For instance, A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health could obtain a business method patent for our unique methods. This would prohibit other companies from deriving any sort of economic benefit from our original ideas for the life of the patent. However, an issue could arise if another company developed a similar business method without the knowledge of A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health. The United States traditionally awards the patent to the person or organization who can prove that they invented the patentable item first, rather than deciding based on who filed the patent application first. This system was implemented in order to discourage inventors from rushing the creative process in order to simply obtain a patent. When inventors are allowed to take their time, the end result is bound to be much better. In some cases, the question of who rightfully deserves the patent would be very difficult to answer fairly and may result in neither company being awarded the patent if neither can prove that they were the first to invent the product or idea.

Trade Secrets

Similar to patents, trade secrets include ideas that help a business to perform better than its competitors, but need not necessarily be specific methods or processes. For instance, the company’s financial statements, before released to the public, are considered private information that could potentially harm or help the company’s relationship with investors and stock prices, if the company is ever publicly traded. In the case of A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health, our method of searching for a client’s name on the internet and thereby trying to dissolve any potential threat to his or her reputation is our most important trade secret. If we wanted to hold an employee liable for the release of a trade secret, such as our search method, we would need to prove that a “reasonable person” would have known that the distribution of the secret was a wrongful act and would not have shared the information with the public. A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health would also need to prove that the information was, in fact, a trade secret, and that we were the rightful owners of the information. When companies lay off employees, a concern may be that trade secrets will be spread to competitors. To calm this fear to some extent, many companies require their employees to sign a confidentiality agreement forbidding the employee to release any of the company’s private information. Furthermore, some companies even institute a sort of “cooling off” period after an employee leaves a position, forbidding him or her from working for a direct competitor within a given period of time. This is called a non-compete agreement which employees will sign to a 2 year term beginning at the leave from the company as well as during their tenure at the company too.

Jurisdiction

A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health is a Professional Corporation organized in the state of Rhode Island. As a resident of the state of Rhode Island, it is in the company’s best interest to let Rhode Island law preside over any issues with the business and for any litigation brought against the company to be heard in its home state. While aspects of A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health will be virtual (ie the website) and thus able to be seen at all times and in all locations with internet access, the company will only seek to do business within the continental United States, and specifically in the state of Rhode Island. As such, our terms of use shall include a forum selection clause that states that:

“These Terms and the relationship between you and A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health shall be governed by the laws of the State of Rhode Island as applied to agreements made, entered into, and performed entirely in Rhode Island by Rhode Island residents, notwithstanding your actual place of residence. All lawsuits arising from or relating to these Terms or your use of the A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health Websites shall be brought in the Federal or State courts located in Rhode Island, and you hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of such courts for such purpose. The failure of A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, you nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the intentions of A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health and you as reflected in the provision, and that the other provisions of these Terms remain in full force and effect. The section titles in these Terms are for convenience only and have no legal or contractual effect. These Terms shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding any termination of your use of the A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health Websites.”

When enacted, the stated terms of use may effectively cause the plaintiff to bring suit against the organization in the state of Rhode Island. It is only if A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health begins to hire out of state employees (otherwise known as “contacts” within the foreign state)  or purposefully avails itself of business in the foreign state that may effectively undue its statement of jurisdiction. It is in those situations where a judge may deem A to Z Primary Care & Occupational Health to have committed a wrongful act in another state and use the state’s long arm statute with specific jurisdiction to hold the case in the foreign court.
