Not Only Dallas Copyright Attorneys, but also Intellectual Property Attorneys
In today’s global marketplace, intellectual property litigation is on the rise. Businesses and individuals face enormous challenges in shielding their products, markets, proprietary materials and methods, and unique systems that drive commercial success through intellectual property law. Copyright laws and intellectual property protection help to guard an organization’s designs, processes, strategies, and electronic media such as websites.
Copyrights, Patents, and Other Intellectual Property Definitions
A copyright is a form of protection for an original work such as a literary, dramatic, musical, architectural, cartographic, choreograph, pantomimic, pictorial, graphic, sculptural, or audiovisual creation. Copyrights are private. By contrast, a trademark is public. It is a public representation of a business or organization. Trade secrets may include any device, method, technique, contact list, strategy, formula, or practice of a company or organization. A patent is a right or title given by a government to an invention, such as a product or idea, for a fixed timeframe. Kilgore & Kilgore also assists with patent infringement and litigating patent licenses.
Dallas Copyright Attorneys and Intellectual Property Litigation
In addition to handling employee rights and employment-related concerns, the intellectual property attorneys at our firm provide leverage to businesses and people involved in buy-out or separation disputes. When employees misappropriate intellectual property, we may be able to put an immediate halt to unauthorized use through a preliminary injunction, a measure provided by U.S. law. To obtain an injunction, one must demonstrate a substantial threat of irreparable harm. An injunction can create an improved likelihood of success in a subsequent intellectual property lawsuit. Matters often end there. Whether clients choose to pursue damages depends on their business objectives and other factors.
