You invented a new toy for children, and you were very excited about the potential it had as a product that could make you thousands, if not millions, of dollars.

Your customers have been leaving negative feedback stating that you sold them cheap, dangerous items. The trouble is that those aren't your items and they're not your customers. It's driving your business into the ground.

Patents, trademarks and copyrights: What are they?
