Our attorneys can help you with initial copyright/trademark search, federal and state registration and enforcement of any infringement claims against other parties. It is important to understand that copyrights and trademarks protect two distinct areas of Intellectual Property. Generally, copyrights protect creative and/or intellectual works such as books, films, musical compositions, artwork, software, promotional/marketing materials, etc. By contrast, trademarks protect the use of a company’s tradename, its brand, logo, slogan, distinct packaging, etc. The protections granted by a valid copyright or trademark differ and different legal standards exist for litigating an infringement claim. It is important that you have an attorney that you can trust who possesses a deep and nuanced understanding of the differences between copyrights, patents, trademarks, trade secrets, trade dress and contractually-protected confidential information.
Our attorneys have extensive experience representing both individuals and companies.
