Use of Einstein's image not protected under New Jersey law

In a recent case, a federal judge ruled that New Jersey common law did not protect against the use of Albert Einstein's image nearly 55 years after his death. Einstein, like many other famous people and businesses, had an intellectual property right in his image, likeness and name. When he died in New Jersey in 1955, Einstein gave this right to publicity to Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

New Jersey retailer accused of stealing trade secrets

For some businesses the main assets are ideas, designs and products. This intellectual property is so important that many state and federal laws fiercely protect business concepts. If a company uses the intellectual property of another company without permission, that company can face serious penalties. New Jersey-based retailer Toys "R" Us Inc. has recently been sued by Fuhu, a Californian toy maker, over intellectual property. According to Fuhu, Toys "R" Us was the sole distributor of a children's tablet called nabi. Fuhu claims Toys "R" Us did little to promote the tablet during the 2011 holiday season. Although initial sales were promising, the toy store company stopped accepting pre-orders. After Christmas sales proved dismal, the nabi tablet toy was discontinued.

Contract dispute slows construction of New Jersey development

Contracts are important in almost every aspect of business. They keep businesses running, set rules and define relationships. When contract disputes arise they can derail a business and its plans. Poorly written or confusing contracts can often be to blame for contract litigation. When terms are not clearly defined, people can misinterpret expectations, which can lead to trouble. One New Jersey development has been completely put on hold recently because of a contract dispute. The developer, Partners Development, was in the process of building a shopping and hotel complex near Route 202/206 in Bedminster, New Jersey. Specifically, the development would include a couple of restaurants, a 50,000-square-foot grocery store, a drug store and a 120-room hotel.

In some situations, commercial litigation can lead to a drastic outcome for a business.
