Intellectual Property Law
Intellectual property is a category of intangible rights protecting commercially valuable products of human intellect. It includes four major subgroups: patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets. Our attorneys have experience in all areas of intellectual property, including trademark litigation and patent prosecution.
You may be surprised at how many aspects of your business can be protected – its name and logo, designs, inventions, and works of creative or intellectual effort. Contact our offices today to learn how The Spencer Law Firm can manage your intellectual property portfolio.
Patents cover useful, novel and nonobvious inventions. Copyrights protect original works of authorship by granting exclusive rights to publish, distribute and reproduce, among other things. A trademark is a word, logo or package design, used by a manufacturer or merchant to identify its goods and services and distinguish them. A trade secret is a formula, practice, process, design, instrument, pattern or compilation of information that is not generally known or reasonably ascertainable, which allows a business to obtain an economic advantage over competitors.
We have extensive experience in dealing with both the transactional and litigation aspects of intellectual property. Contact us today or call us at 713-568-9008 to see how we can help you maximize your intellectual assets.
