Tennessee lovers of 1980's music may remember the band Guns N' Roses. While it may not enjoy the same fame it did back then, the band's name remains out there. Recently, a brewery in another state apparently attempted to capitalize on the band's fame by using it to name one of its products, which could constitute a violation of intellectual property laws.
If a Nashville business includes new inventions or improvements to existing ones, protecting that work needs to take priority. In this situation, a company's portfolio of intellectual property should more than likely need at least one patent. Before applying for one, it will be necessary to determine whether a particular product qualifies for this legal protection.
Developing enough residential housing to meet demands of the Nashville housing market may be easier said than done. Even so, it may be possible to take advantage of a zoning policy that allows a builder to double down on one piece of real estate. In fact, you may have already seen single-family homes being demolished in order to make room for something new.
