INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY (TRADEMARK & COPYRIGHT)

The Legal Team has entered into a strategic partnership with Augusto Perera, P.A., Intellectual Property Law Firm to create a concierge-level business platform to better serve our clients.

We fully recognize that small and mid-size business owners may need more than Commercial Litigation, Corporate and International Law legal guidance.  Often our clients are looking for specialized counsel regarding trademarks, copyrights, and other intellectual property rights.

We work closely with Augusto Perera, P.A. to Co-Counsel certain matters that require additional expertise outside of Commercial Litigation, Corporate and International Law matters.  We have excellent strategic partnerships with select attorneys who also strive to provide the same level of quality service, including Augusto Perera, Esq., the Managing Partner of Augusto Perera, PA.

Trademark

A trademark or service mark includes any word, name, symbol, device, or any combination, used or intended to be used to identify and distinguish the goods/services of one seller or provider from those of others, and to indicate the source of the goods/services.  Whether you want to avoid infringement issues or resolve other trademark-related disputes, we are here to help.

How can we help?

Trademark disputes can occur during both the registration and enforcement periods.  If you want to prevent infringement issues while registering your trademark, let our team assist you.

Our intellectual property lawyer will do a comprehensive search to make sure the term you want to register is unique and w will not cause any dispute.  He will clearly identify the goods and/or services to be associated with the mark.  And he will help you avoid registration errors and rejections that only lead to delays and added expenses.

In case you come across another party using your registered trademark, we are here to help you pursue legal action against the infringer.  Our attorney will evaluate your case and represent you in court to enforce your trademark rights.

 

Copyrights

Copyright protection exist in original works of authorship fixed in any tangible medium of expression, now known or later developed, from which they can be perceived, reproduced, or otherwise communicated, either directly or with the aid of a machine or device.  Works of authorship include the following categories:

  1. literary works;
  2. musical works, including any accompanying words;
  3. dramatic works, including any accompanying music;
  4. pantomimes and choreographic works;
  5. pictorial, graphic, and sculptural works;
  6. motion pictures and other audiovisual works;
  7. sound recordings; and
  8. architectural works.

Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed.  Copyright protection is not available until the work is in a tangible medium of expression, such as a paperback book or audio recording.  Your work is under copyright protection the moment it is created and fixed in a tangible form that it is perceptible either directly or with the aid of a machine or device.  After all, copyright law does not protect ideas, only the expression of the ideas.

Once obtained, a copyright gives you exclusive rights to your artistic works.  These include the right to reproduce the work, distribute copies of it, perform it, and display it publicly.
