Lily’s Lily Dance Fitness business is quite successful. She is producing her second video and has been approached to do an infomercial to promote it. Lily has copyrighted and trademarked her videos, name and logo. She wonders if she needs to patent her fitness method to prevent others from using it. Your attorney asks you to research the merits of patent protection and draft a memorandum and recommendation on whether patent protection is desirable in her case.
In the memorandum, explain what protections a patent offers, who they are available for, and under what circumstances. Conclude with a determination on whether a patent would benefit Lily Dance Fitness and provide a rationale for your answer. Cite all sources using Bluebook format.
This assignment has two parts and you must complete both parts of the assignment.
