Intellectual property involves two distinct categories: industrial property and copyright. Contact Benjamin Appelbaum, Attorney at Law, and learn more about your rights from an intellectual property law firm.
Patents are exclusive rights granted to an inventor. The invention can be a product, a process or an improvement to an existing product or process, but to obtain a patent on the invention, a patent application must adhere to strict guidelines.
Trademarks are words, names, logos, distinctive marks or signs used to indicate the source of the goods or services with which the mark is associated.
Copyrights protect the rights of artistic creators, authors, and performers of an original work.
Trade secrets include practices, processes, recipes, designs, formulas, or information not generally known or easily discovered, that makes up an economic element of a business.
For assistance with these issues and other questions of intellectual property, we encourage you to call our office.
