What is Intellectual Property?
Intellectual property encompasses many of the areas that have already been addressed above. Copyright and trademark law are subcategories under the broader umbrella of intellectual property. By definition, Intellectual Property is something that is created in a person’s mind, such as an idea, invention, or creative work. An individual has the right to claiming ownership over these original, creative thoughts.
Our professionals at Rogero Law are experienced in protecting intellectual property. Whether you’re looking to register a copyright claim for your business or ensure that your product is patented, we can assist you in all of these areas. We recognize how important intellectual property protection is and we strive to keep our clients covered at all times.
What is a Copyright?
Copyright is a form of protection provided to the authors of “original works of authorship” including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works, both published and unpublished. The 1976 Copyright Act generally gives the owner of copyright the exclusive right to reproduce the copyrighted work, to prepare derivative works, to distribute copies or phonorecords of the copyrighted work, to perform the copyrighted work publicly, or to display the copyrighted work publicly.
The copyright protects the form of expression rather than the subject matter of the writing. For example, a description of a machine could be copyrighted, but this would only prevent others from copying the description; it would not prevent others from writing a description of their own or from making and using the machine. Copyrights are registered by the Copyright Office of the Library of Congress.
What is a Trademark?
A trademark is a word, name, symbol, or device that is used in trade with goods to indicate the source of the goods and to distinguish them from the goods of others. A service mark is the same as a trademark except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than a product. The terms “trademark” and “mark” are commonly used to refer to both trademarks and service marks.
Trademark rights may be used to prevent others from using a confusingly similar mark, but not to prevent others from making the same goods or from selling the same goods or services under a clearly different mark. Trademarks that are used in interstate or foreign commerce may be registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
