Re: Patenting Ideas?
unfortunately, a theme for a restaurant is not patentable, it falls more under trademark and copyright law than anything else. It is possibly protectable under trademark/copyright law, but it requires more work to protect. Patents are assumed valid in court, b/c there is such a rigorous patent examination process before they are issued, but copyrights/trademarks are simply a registration thing, they are not reviewed/challenged in the application process, so they are much more difficult to uphold in court. Sorry if the explaination is a bit too in depth, I took a couple classes in patent/copyright/trademark law in grad school.
