Intellectual Property Law
Patents, Trademarks & Copyrights
A patent grants “the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling” an invention in the United States or “importing” the invention into the United States.
A trademark is generally a word, phrase, symbol, or design, or a combination thereof, that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others.
Copyright is a form of protection provided to the author(s) of “original works of authorship,” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works.
