Intellectual property is any creation of the mind, whether an invention, a literary or artistic piece of work, a design, name or image, or symbol used in commerce. IP is protected by law with patents, trademarks, or copyrights. This allows people to earn financial benefits or recognition for what they create or invent. At the Law Offices of Dorian Cartwright, we can help you to get patents, trademarks, or copyrights for your intellectual property easily.
Types of Intellectual Property
There are many types of intellectual property including:
- Copyright: Copyright is a term to describe the rights that creators have over their artistic or literary work. This can include paintings, music, books, films, sculpture, databases, ads, maps, or drawings.
- Trademarks: A trademark is a sign of distinguishing goods or services of one company from another. They date back to ancient times when artisans would put marks on their products.
- Patents: A patent is an exclusive right granted for an invention. It gives the patent owner the right to decide how or if the invention can be used by others.
- Trade secrets: Trade secrets are intellectual property rights on confidential information that can be licensed or sold. The unauthorized use or disclosure of them is regarded as an unfair practice and is in violation of the trade secret protection.
