Serious Representation For Your Legal Disputes

Protecting Your Intellectual Property Rights

Innovators and businesses depend on the integrity of the intellectual property (IP) underlying their endeavors and ambitions. If you have designed a tool, written a book or song, or perfected business processes, you are entitled to reap the rewards of the application of your good ideas. IP rights can help you keep control over existing and future commercial activities involving your creations.

The business dispute attorneys at DLM LAW LLC in Kansas City are experienced in litigating cases involving patent infringement, copyright infringement, trademark infringement and theft of trade secrets.

Turn To Us For In-Depth Counsel On Your IP Rights

Intellectual property originates in people’s minds and includes inventions, creative works and designs, as well as symbols, names and images suitable for the marketplace. Legally speaking, intellectual property protection is made tangible through:

  • Patents
  • Trademarks
  • Copyrights

When a business or legal entity secures a patent or registers a trademark copyright with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), that IP is legally protected. If another person or company infringes on these rights, the affected inventor or owner has legal remedies against the infringer.

IP also may take the form of trade secrets. Although the law can vary from state to state, trade secrets can typically include:

  • Lists of customers and prospects
  • Business plans
  • Proprietary products and processes

These business assets may be protected through nondisclosure agreements that employees and associates such as business partners and customers may sign and be accountable for.
