Each of these areas is controlled by different statutes, some federal and some state. Additionally, the courts have construed various portions of the statutes in an effort to produce uniformity and consistency so a working knowledge of this case law is important.
We believe a long-term approach should always be considered when deciding issues of intellectual property. An improperly or partially perfected intellectual property right could prove useless. This would jeopardize the work that was necessary to produce a particular idea and ultimately lead to little or no protection for the inventor, creator, or author.
In order to achieve the maximum protection for your intellectual property, specific recommendations concerning issues of intellectual property should be made by a registered patent attorney. The recommendations should be based on the objective of a business goal or plan, and the achievement and implementation of it.
