Defending your intellectual property is essential for your business
People share information online every day without thinking about who owns the information. They don’t think of it as stealing, but it is a theft of intellectual property. That’s why it’s increasingly important for individuals and businesses to understand how to protect their intellectual property rights.
Intellectual property includes ideas and creative works. Depending on their type or format, these ideas and creative works are protected by patents, trademarks, copyrights or trade secrets:
Copyrights protect the rights of people who create original works such as literary, dramatic and choreographed works; audiovisual media; pictures and sculpted art; music and lyrics; software and website content; and architecture
Patents are used to protect inventions, ideas and discoveries.
Trademarks are used to distinguish and protect words, phrases, symbols and designs identifying a company’s goods or services
Trade secrets include formulas, patterns, compilations, programs, devices, methods, techniques or processes used in a business to gain an advantage over competitors
Copyright protections prove and protect authorship. Without them, it would be difficult for artists to be paid. Patents and trademarks protect against counterfeiting, plagiarism and fakes. They prove and protect your ownership of ideas and inventions. These protections encourage the innovation and creativity that contribute to technical and social progress. This progress is undermined when intellectual property rights are violated. An experienced intellectual property lawyer can help you take advantage of copyright, trademark, patent and trade secret protections.
Protect your ideas, creative works and inventions from unauthorized use
It’s against the law for anyone to use your intellectual property without your permission. Enforcing intellectual property rights has gotten more difficult and complex as the digital world has expanded and businesses grow from local to global. An intellectual property law firm can help your business monitor and enforce its intellectual property rights by helping you to:
Determine if your trademark or invention can be protected
Identify and classify your creative work, products or services
Understand your trade secret and other intellectual property rights
Avoid infringement or misappropriation of someone else’s intellectual property
