Intellectual property is personal. Our clients use their creative genius to change the world and we represent scientists, inventors and creative professionals to ensure that that genius is protected through intellectual property litigation.
What is intellectual property?
For everyday readers of this blog, they may know this inherently. Though, for those newcomers, intellectual property is a broad term. The term covers many different forms of innovation and creative expression. The creator of these innovations and creative expressions have property rights and commercial opportunity rights to them. These right can be enormously valuable.
Of course, when we think of intellectual property, we think of things like programs and software, but it goes broader to artistic endeavors, like music, poetry, writings, and even research associated with scientific breakthroughs. Think about the medical miracles that are all around us. Someone invented them, and there is intellectual property in all of them that must be protected. This is why we represent scientists, artists, writers and individual inventors to protect their genius.
What areas of intellectual property do we practice?
That is a great question, and Benjamin Appelbaum Attorney at Law helps a wide range of clients with various intellectual property issues. These include patents (filing with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, including preparation and the actual filing itself), trademarks (working within the The Lanham Act to file for and attain), copyrights (working within The Copyright Act and current Copyright Statutes), licensing (we have an effective and experienced licensing team), intellectual property infringement (simply filing and registering one’s intellectual property is not enough, one must enforce those rights), Internet law, trade secrets and, of course, business formation. Often, that last piece, business formation, is over looked. However, proper business formation can be the difference between getting the full value from one’s intellectual property, and it simply sitting idle.
