Intellectual Property Law
Intellectual Property generally refers to intangible property rights such as trademarks, copyrights, and patents. Generally speaking, each exists to protect against the unauthorized use of creations or inventions of the mind, but they differ from one another in important ways. Simply stated, trademarks identify and distinguish the source of goods and services; copyrights protect original works of authorship in various mediums (i.e., books, photographs, plays, drawings, songs); and patents protect an invention or process. Proper trademark, copyright, and patent application and protection is an integral part of preserving a business plan, reputation, and identity.
