Intellectual Property is related to ideas and mental creations such as: artistic and literary works, inventions, images, drawings and names, symbols, and models used in commerce. All these creations are protected by patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets.
Any form of financial, business, technical, economic, scientific, engineering or other valuable information kept or stored secret and that derives an independent economic value just for being secret.
A patent provides an exclusive right to an inventor to manufacture, use, sell, offer to sell and/or import an invention in the United States for a limited period of time.
Copyrights protect the expression of an original idea (not the idea itself) during a limited period of time. In order to acquire protection, the work must be original and fixed in any means of expression.
A mark is any sign or means used in commerce to distinguish the products or services of a person from the products or services of another person. This includes trademarks, service marks, certification marks or collective marks.
Our firm has vast experience representing and advising clients in all matters relating to negotiations, contracts and litigation in the matter of product distribution.
