Intellectual Property Law - Copyrights, Branding, Patents & More - Melbourne, FL

Intellectual property in the form of patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and other forms of protection for intellectual creations are valuable assets of a business enterprise.  As with any other property right, owners of intellectual property may benefit from their own or licensed works or inventions.  IP rights can benefit businesses in a competitive environment and upon the sale or merger of the business enterprise.  In addition, works in the areas of technology and culture are encouraged and protected by law and regulation. 

Although original works of authorship in the areas of software development, technology, advertising, art, music, film and other forms of entertainment may have limited protection without formal application to the United States Copyright Office or the United States Patent and Trademark Office, additional measures are usually recommended for more complete protection and effective commercialization.  Ownership of a patent, trademark and/or copyright can enhance the commercial value of a company.
