Intellectual Property, Trademarks and Patents
Do you lock your doors at night? Of course you do to protect your business and its assets. Are you protecting one of your business’ most valuable asset – your ideas? Intellectual property (IP) describes a body of law that deals with creations of the human mind, your ideas, and various legal entitlements which attach to certain names, written and recorded media, and inventions. The holders of these legal entitlements may exercise various exclusive rights. Intellectual property law is primarily governed by patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret law. In today’s business environment, protecting your IP is a high-value matter. Through the experienced use of trademarks, copyrights and other IP law, Davis Miles McGuire Gardner helps companies to identify, secure, protect and exploit their valuable IP and technology assets.
