Protecting Your Work

Protecting your intellectual property rights can be a difficult and confusing process. The law is highly complex, the bureaucracy behind each is convoluted and those who misappropriate your works are often unscrupulous and hard to find. With our experience, we can protect your rights and take steps to safeguard the fruits of your labor. The rights and protections for owners of intellectual property are based on federal patent, trademark and copyright laws and state trade secret laws. We have the experience and know-how to help you with all aspects of intellectual property law, including:

Copyrights: Copyright is a statutory property right that grants to creators (authors) certain exclusive rights in their creations for a limited duration. A copyright protects intangible works of authorship that are fixed in a tangible medium of expression.

Trademarks: A trademark is a word, phrase, name, symbol, design, product shape or logo used by a merchant or manufacturer to identify and distinguish its goods or services from those of another merchant or manufacturer.

Trade Secrets: A trade secret is generally defined as valuable business information that is not generally known to others and that provides the business with a competitive edge over others in its industry.
