A “trade secret” is something that derives its value “from not being generally known to, and not being readily ascertainable by proper means by, other persons who can obtain economic value from its disclosure or use.” It could be a program, formula, process, pattern, compilation, technique or method, among other things. Your business and employees may develop other proprietary information critical to your success. We help you identify and protect sensitive business information and ideas and represent your interests in the event of a lawsuit.
A copyright is used to protect original works of artistic, literary, or graphic expressions, such as with photographs, books, paintings, music, and more. We can help you secure copyright protection, defend those rights and represent you in litigation over copyright matters.
A trademark is a design, words, slogan or symbol that is used to represent or identify a service or product of a business entity, and distinguish them from the products and services of others. We can help you with registration and identify the benefits of trademark protection, as well as represent you in the event a legal dispute arises.
Licensing your intellectual property – granting someone else the right to use your IP for a fee — can produce revenue for your business. We help you draft and negotiate strong licensing contracts and identify the value in your rights.
We represent internet based companies and those doing business online. There are many legal issues that arise in connection with the internet including copyright, trademark, domain name and data protection.
