Trademarks and Copyrights


In today’s corporate world, it is critical for businesses to protect their unique identity and brand. As one of San Diego’s leading trademark firms, Procopio understands the importance of trademark protection and branding. Each year, we are involved in the prosecution and maintenance of thousands of trademark applications and registrations. Whether they are used for consumer, athletic, or mass produced products, or for highly specialized and high value products and services such as computer software, medical devices, or construction services, the trademarks that we protect are often recognized by businesses and consumers worldwide.

Our services include trademark counseling, registration and litigation in the United States and throughout the world, and the negotiation and preparation of trademark licenses and other trademark-implicated agreements. Other trademark services include:

  • Selection and clearance (including words, logos, colors, images, packaging, sounds, and smells – all of which are entitled to trademark protection)
  • Internet domain name disputes
  • Due diligence
  • USPTO proceedings
  • Civil litigation at both the trial and appellate levels
  • Policing and enforcement of trademark rights around the world and on the Internet

Our experience makes a difference. For the past four years, Procopio has been named the Top Trademark Filing Law Firm in San Diego on the CSC® Trademark Insider® Report. Awards are determined by the total number of new trademark applications filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office during individual calendar years.


Books, photos, music, video, audio, artwork, research material and software, among many other copyrightable works, can be shared with the push of a button or posted on the web for millions of people to see and access. Obtaining copyright registration protection is an essential step in the protection and enforcement of the numerous creative works that are entitled to copyright protection.

Procopio’s copyright practice covers all aspects of copyright and database law. In addition to providing day-to-day counseling regarding the registration, licensing, policing and enforcement of copyrights, we counsel and represent clients in copyright disputes and litigation, copyright compliance matters, and business transactions involving copyrightable works. Because of the several rights copyrights encompass, we assist our clients in maximizing revenue from the exploitation of their copyrightable works by themselves and their licensees. Other copyright services include:

  • Copyright registration for all of the types of works entitled to copyright protection
  • Consulting, license, and development agreements for all types of copyrightable works, including computer software, and literary, art, musical, dramatic, and architectural works
  • Copyright clearance, analysis, and monitoring
  • Civil litigation at both the trial and appellate levels
  • Digital rights management
