A patent is a government-issued legal document that prevents others from using, selling, offering to sell, making, and importing an invention claimed in that patent. An issued patent is statutorily presumed valid, provides the owner with a monopoly on the claimed invention for twenty years from the filing date, and is one of the most valuable tools a business or individual can have in an IP portfolio to be successful. A licensed and/or registered attorney who helps inventors draft patent applications and enforce patents is generally referred to as a patent attorney or a registered patent attorney with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”). Please read more about patents here, or call one of our experienced patent attorneys, particularly one who is Board Certified in Intellectual Property Law, for assistance.
A trademark is a word, name, symbol, or device that is used in trade with either good(s) or service(s) to indicate the source of said good(s) or service(s), and to distinguish them from the good(s) or service(s) of others. Ensuring a trademark is adequately protected, and policed, is ESSENTIAL to any successful business. Said another way, without trademarks, businesses would have little recourse others using the same or confusingly similar word, name, or symbol. An attorney who helps inventors draft trademark applications and enforce trademarks is generally referred to as a trademark attorney or intellectual property attorney. Please read more about trademarks here, or call one of our experienced trademark attorneys, particularly one who is Board Certified in Intellectual Property Law, for assistance.
A copyright is a form of protection provided to the authors of “original works of authorship” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works, both published and unpublished. The 1976 Copyright Act generally gives the owner of copyright the exclusive right to reproduce the copyrighted work, to prepare derivative works, to distribute copies or phonorecords of the copyrighted work, to perform the copyrighted work publicly, or to display the copyrighted work publicly.
