A trademark, or brand name, is a symbol used to identify the owner or "source" of a particular product. It can be a name, short phrase, logo, graphic design, jingle, package, product configuration, or even a scent. A service mark serves the same function, but is used with services instead of products.
Our attorneys are experienced in every discipline, and all areas of trial and appellate practice before the administrative agencies and state and federal courts that deal with controversies in patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade and unfair competition, and technology.
A copyright protects original works of authorship, such as works of art, books, brochures and other text, motion pictures, multimedia and sound recordings, literary and dramatic works, musical compositions, architectural works, computer programs and other creations that are fixed in a tangible form.
