Intellectual Property Protections – Patents, Copyrights and Trademarks
Your intellectual property is a valuable asset, and intellectual property protection is essential to maximize the value of your patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets. IP law is an extremely complex legal field, and it is important to have an intellectual property lawyer with experience in obtaining and protecting IP assets – and an understanding of the technology underlying your invention or creative work.
The Taylor Russell & Russell IP law firm provides intellectual property protection services to clients in the U.S. and internationally. Our patent attorneys, trademark lawyers, copyright and trade secret protection specialists can assist you with patent applications and trademark registrations -- and protection of intellectual property through administrative filings, infringement notices and litigation, if required.
Establishing and Protecting Intellectual Property Rights
Among the first steps taken to protect intellectual property are the inventory of all IP assets and development of an intellectual property protection strategy. This provides a framework in which the company’s existing and prospective trademarks, copyrights and patents can be cultivated to maximize their business value and secure the necessary intellectual property protections.
At the same time, companies should undertake an IP audit to ensure they own or have licensed the IP rights to intellectual property on their products or business operations. A TR&R IP attorney can advise and assist your business in developing an intellectual property protection strategy, as well as conducting an IP inventory and audit.
IP Lawyers for Patent Protection and Trade Secret Preservation
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has established policies and procedures for obtaining U.S. patents and trademarks. These provide intellectual property protection for U.S. inventions and trade marks. Copyright protection is overseen by the U.S. Copyright office within the Library of Congress.
Unlike patents, copyrights and trademarks which obtain intellectual property protection via federal statutes, trade secret protection is governed by state law. Most states -- but not Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Texas – have ratified the Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA) which provides common rights and remedies for trade secret protection.
