One of the embodiments relates to an approach that involves the obtaining of a media composition to display on an electronics display device. Each layer of the media composition contains a visual element. The method also involves choosing at least one of the layers in the composition that will be able to apply a parallax effect thereto and determining an amount of parallax effect total to apply to selected layers. The method additionally involves applying an appropriate amount offset for each layer, and shifting the layers in appropriate directions according to their respective amounts. Additionally, the method involves display of the media composition, displaying the parallax effect on an electronic display device.

The visual media components, like videos and images are used to promote and promote media compositions, including films, films, and television shows. They aren’t interactive and don’t allow for variance or user interaction once they have been composed. They do not offer a highly entertaining viewing experience that encourages such media compositions.

Certain implementations involve the creation of a media composition for display on an electronic device. The media composition includes multiple layers, with each layer comprising at least one visible element. Themethod also includes choosing at least one of the layers of the media composition to be able to apply a parallax effect thereto and determining an amount of parallax effect total to apply to selected layers. The method additionally involves applying the proper amount of offset to each layer on an individual basis. Then, it is shifting the layers to the desired direction by applying the appropriate amount of offset. Furthermore, the method incorporates showing the mediacomposition and the parallax effect on the electronic display device.

Specific implementations have at minimum the following benefits. A typical media composition could include visual elements that are selected for the parallax effect. The visual elements can include images, text, videos, or any other visual element. Furthermore, videos could be transparent which allows lower layers to be seen through portions of the videos that are not desired to be opaque, allowing for a more immersiveexperience for the viewers of the composition after the parallax effect is applied to the layers of.

The specifics of one or more implementations are set forth in the accompanying drawings, as well as the following description. Additional features, aspects and benefits could be obvious in the illustrations and claims.

What is a patent?

A patent is granted by the government to protect an invention, a patent provides the inventor exclusive rights to create, use, sell and promote the invention? Society gains when a innovative technology is introduced to the market. The benefits can be in direct terms, as it allows people to do previously impossible things. Or indirectly due to the opportunities for economic growth (business growth and job opportunities) which the invention provides.

Patent protection is sought by a variety of university researchers and drug companies for research and development. Patents can be granted to a physical or abstract product or process or a method or composition of materials new to the field. Patent protection has to be granted to an invention that is useful, novel, and not yet known by other people in the same area.

Patents give inventors a reward for commercially profitable inventions. They act as an incentive for inventors to invent. Patents allow inventors and small businesses to know that there’s a good chance they will get a profit for their efforts, time, and money invested in technological development. They could earn a decent income through their work.

Patents play essential roles in businesses with the ability to:

Create and protect innovative products and services;

Enhance the value, visibility, and attractiveness of your product on the market;

Differentiate yourself and your products from others.

Access business and technical expertise and information;

Beware of the possibility of using proprietary third-party content or losing valuable information, innovative outputs, or another creative output.

Patents effectively transform the inventor’s knowledge into a commercially tradeable asset which opens new opportunities to create jobs and boost expansion of businesses through licensing or joint ventures.

Investors in the development and commercialization of technology may find small-scale businesses that have patent protection to be more attractive.

Patenting may lead to the development of new ideas and new inventions. This information could be protected by patents.

Patents can be used to stop untrustworthy third-party companies from earning through the work of inventions.

Revenues from patent-protected technology that are commercially successful can be used to fund research and development (R&D), which will increase the chance of better technology in the near future.

It is possible to use intellectual property ownership to convince investors and lenders that your product has commercial potential. Sometimes, a single patent could lead to numerous financing possibilities. Patents can be used in conjunction with other IP assets as collateral or security to secure financing. Investors are also able to view your patent assets to boost their valuation of your company. Forbes and others have noted that each patent can add anything from $500,000 to a million dollars in company valuation.

A well-designed business plan is essential for new businesses. It should be based on IP and explain what your service or product is distinctive. In addition, investors will be impressed if you show that your IP rights are secure or on the verge of becoming secure and that they support your business strategy.

It is crucial to keep an invention secret prior to filing for patent protection. Pre-filing disclosures of an invention can often degrade its novelty and invalidate it. Disclosures that are filed prior to filing, like for investors, test-marketing, or any other business partners, must be done following the signing of a confidentiality agreement.

There are several types of patents. Understanding these is vital to safeguard your invention. Utility patents cover inventions and processes that are new. Design patents cover ornamental designs. Utility patents are best and protect the owner against copycats and other competitors. Utility patents are often issued to improve or modify existing inventions. They can also be used to improve or alter existing inventions. For example, a process patent will be able to cover actions or methods of doing one specific thing, whereas chemical compositions will comprise a mixture of ingredients.

What is the average length of a patent? While utility patents are valid up to 20 years from the initial filing, they may be extended by delay at the patent office.

After the patent application has been filed, the product subject to the application may be called patent-pending, and you can locate the patent application on public pair. After the patent office approves your application, you will be able to do a patent number search to find the patent issued. The product you are selling will become a patent. It is also possible to use the USPTO search engine. See below for details. A patent lawyer or attorney can assist you with the process. Patents in the United States are granted by the US trademark and patent office as well as the United States patent office. This office also evaluates trademark applications.

Are you interested in similar patents? Here are the steps to follow:

1. Think of terms to describe your invention based on its purpose, composition, and usage.

Write down a short detailed description of the invention. Be sure to avoid using terms that are generic such as “device,” “process,” and “system.” Instead, consider synonyms to the terms you initially chose. Next, take note of important technical terms, as well as key words.

To help you find terms and keywords, you can use the questions below.

  • What is the objective of the invention? Is it a utilitarian device or an ornamental design?
  • Is the invention a way of creating something , or performing an action? Is it an object?
  • What is the composition of the invention? What is the physical composition of the invention?
  • What’s the point of the invention
  • What are the technical terms and terms used to describe the nature of an invention? A technical dictionary will help you find the appropriate terms.

2. These terms allow you to look up pertinent Cooperative Patent Classifications on the Classification Search Tool. To find the best classification to your invention, look through the classification’s class Schemes (class schedules). If you do not get results using the Classification Text Search, you may want to consider replacing the words that describe your invention using synonyms.

3. Examine 3. Check the CPC Classification Definition for confirmation of the CPC classification you found. If the classification you have selected has a blue box with a “D” on its left, clicking on the hyperlink will direct you to the CPC classification’s description. CPC classification definitions can aid you in determining the classification’s requirements so that you can choose the most relevant. In addition the definitions may include research tips and other suggestions that may be useful to further study.

4. The Patents Full-Text Database and the Image Database allow you to search for patent documents that have the CPC classification. You can look through and narrow down the relevant patent documents by having a focus on the abstract and the drawings that are representative.

5. Use this selection of the most relevant patent publications to look at each in detail for similarity to your own invention. Pay close attention to the specification and claims. Consult the applicant and patent examiner for additional patents.

6. Retrieve published patent applications with the CPC classification you chose in Step 3 in the Applications Full-Text and Image Database. You can also use the same method of search that you utilized in Step 4 to narrow your search results to the most relevant patent applications by looking over the abstracts and drawings for every page. Next, carefully examine the patent applications published and pay particular attention to the claims as well as additional drawings.

7. You can find additional US patent publications by keyword searching in the AppFT and PatFT databases, and also search for patents classified as not from the United States according to below. You can also utilize web search engines to search non-patent literature disclosures about inventions. Examples:

  • Add keywords to your search. Keyword searches may turn up documents that are not well-categorized or have missed classifications during Step 2. For example, US patent examiners often supplement their classification searches with keyword searches. Think about the use of technical engineering terminology rather than everyday words.
  • Search for foreign patents using the CPC classification. Then, re-run the search using international patent office search engines such as Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s worldwide patent publication database of over 130 million patent publications. Other national databases include:
  • Search non-patent literature. Inventions can be made public in many non-patent publications. It is recommended that you search journals, books, websites, technical catalogs, conference proceedings, and other print and electronic publications.

To review your search, you can hire a registered patent attorney to assist. A preliminary search will help one better prepare to talk about their invention and other related inventions with a professional patent attorney. In addition, the attorney will not spend too much time or money on patenting basics.
