In a constantly changing and ever-growing online world, protecting intellectual property has become even more of a challenge.
Intellectual property (IP) is the property that includes intangible creations of the human intellect. There are several types of IPs and the types of IPs that are recognized legally varies by country. These creations can include inventions that may qualify for literary and artistic work ( books, plays, music, artwork). They can also include product branding (names, slogans, logos, packaging, symbols, images)
Inevitably the growth of the internet has led to an increase in intellectual property crimes. IP theft involves stealing ideas, inventions, and creative expressions from individuals or companies. This can include everything from proprietary products, parts of movies or music, software, and trade secrets.
There Are Six Main Areas of Intellectual Property Law
In most scenarios YES! You should protect yourself and your assets when they are being infringed upon. Protecting your IP secures an economic advantage for your business. To protect and defend your unique ideas, products, and services, register them with the government and enforce your ownership rights.
Results of IP litigation vary from criminal fines to imprisonment for a defined amount of time. The outcome of the charges all depends upon the severity and nature of the charges. In some cases, suspension or loss of business license is also possible.
You need to think twice before sending a trademark infringement cease and desist letter. While such a letter can improve and enforce your trademark rights, these letters can sometimes backfire. You need to fully understand your rights and the possible rights of the person you believe is infringing. Sometimes sending a threat letter can backfire, causing you to go from offense to defense in a hurry. Our trademark attorneys have you covered.
