Legal Answers
Q. If someone was to program a piece of software for an organization, hosted on their server, can they use it if they leave
A: That depends on factors, including whether the programmer was an employee or a contractor, whether the programmer owned it prior to the installation onto the server or it was done specifically for the company, and whether the person was paid for the work of writing the program, etc.
Q. I need a lawyer to have international patent intellectual property rights for a non-US resident
A: Patent lawyers very deal with international patent law on a daily basis. The way it works is that we are hired by a client who tells us which countries patent protection is needed, and we then coordinate patent work for our clients in all of those countries via local associates ("associates" = lawyers who are able to practice in the country of interest). You are able to hire a lawyer anywhere in the world who would be able to coordinate the patent prosecution around the globe, but I suggest that you start with an attorney in the country where you live.
Q. Hello, How can I find out if I can copy a patent product and just stick my own logo to it instead of theirs logo.
A: Well, the point of patents is to prevent you from doing exactly what you are trying to do. However, you should be able to copy someone else's patented product if somehow you don't infringe (you are outside the scope of the claims of the patent), or there is a problem with the patent that makes it unenforceable (it expired, it is anticipated by prior art, etc.). Go seek a patent attorney who can help you with this.
