The Big Four of Intellectual Property Rights

U.S. and international law provide individuals and businesses with many options to protect their intellectual property and creative works. These include protections for trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets.

The four main methods of protecting intellectual property (IP) include:

  • Patents: Patent attorneys must be registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). A patent gives you the right to exclude others from making, using, selling, or importing your invention. At Norred Law PLLC, we will help you establish protection under patent law in the United States and in other countries. Our patent lawyers will also help you license your patent to others and prosecute those who violate it.
  • Copyrights: Copyrights protect the work of creators such as songwriters, authors, and other artists. Courts will protect unregistered copyrights, but registration with the Library of Congress gives more protection. This registration provides attorney fees, statutory damages, and exemplary damages. Copyright registration raises the stakes against those who might attempt to steal your work.
  • Trademarks: Trademark law gives legal protection to names, logos and other marketing devices. These devices are distinctive and help consumers identify the manufacturer or distributor of the goods they buy. As with copyrights, courts will protect an unregistered trademark. However, trademark owners receive far more protection and ability to protect their trademark by registering it with the USPTO.
  • Trade Secrets: Recently passed federal law has joined with the states to protect trade secrets. These include client lists, standard operating procedures, and any other internally developed process or information that gives your business an advantage. The law is still in flux regarding this area, and there is no shortcut to creating contracts for this purpose.

In some cases, the most important part of protecting your intellectual property is knowing whether you have property worth protecting. Should you protect the name and logo of your business by registering it as a trademark? Is the new process your company recently implemented worth patenting?

These are important questions that could impact the future of your business. Norred Law is prepared to answer them.
