What Constitutes as Intellectual Property?
Intellectual property is a category of property that includes intangible creations of human intellect. This firm litigates cases and provides counsel concerning copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets. The law gives individuals and businesses property rights to the information and intellectual goods they create.
A copyright gives the creator of an original work exclusive rights to it, usually for a limited time. A trademark is a recognizable sign, design, or expression that distinguishes a trader from similar products or services of other traders. A trade secret is a formula, practice, process, design, instrument, pattern, or compilation of information, which is not generally known or reasonably ascertainable. A business can get an economic advantage over competitors and customers. Each company must take measures to guard its trade secrets.
Infringement, Misappropriation, and Enforcement
Violation of intellectual property rights, called “infringement” with respect to copyright, and trademarks, and “misappropriation” with respect to trade secrets, may be a breach of civil law or criminal law, depending on the type of intellectual property involved, jurisdiction, and the nature of the violation.
