MAXIMIZE YOUR CREATIVITY AND INGENUITY.
Intellectual Property is increasingly important to any business enterprise. I have been in solo practice since 2005 assisting clients in getting patent, trademark and copyright protection for their creative, inventive and entrepreneurial pursuits. It's a pleasure to work with dynamic, optimistic and brilliant people as they pursue the American Dream of capitalizing on their ingenuity.
Patents protect inventive ideas that are new, useful and unobvious in light of existing technologies. We are here to help you determine if your idea rises to this level and, if it does, to secure patent protection so that the success of your idea is not diluted by competition.
Trademarks brand your goods and services and are essentially a source identifier for what you offer. As time goes on, the availability of names, logos and slogans become currency in your business. Securing the exclusive right to your trademarks is essential in reaping the benefits of the goodwill you create surrounding your brand.
Copyrights protect creative works fixed in a medium, such as a photograph, a writing, a website, a book, a recording, a film. Copyrights attach as soon as the work is fixed in that medium. However, failure to make a notice of those rights will make it difficult for someone to comply if they don't know who to ask for permission to copy. For this reason, it is important to put copyrights notices on all of your works in such a way that the owner of those rights is easily identifiable. Registration is not required for those rights to attach, but registration does come with benefits, such as attorneys fees in the event of litigation and the listing of the copyrighted matter in a searchable database.
