You have intellectual property to defend. Now what?

On Behalf of | Apr 18, 2019 | Intellectual Property

Californian entrepreneurs, business owners, startup hopefuls and more will all eventually come to a point where there is intellectual property (copyright, trademark, and patent) to protect. Wang Intellectual Property specializes in giving you the tools and defenses needed to keep your intellectual property (IP) rights safe.

There are two primary steps when it comes to intellectual property: first, you must establish your intellectual property rights and, second, you must defend them.

Establishing IP rights comes in the form of registering your IP with the proper U.S. agency. In order to do so, you will need to know what paperwork to fill out, if there are any deadlines to meet, and whether the specific IP you are trying to register has any special requirements.

Defending your IP after you have it registered is also crucially important. You can legally defend copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and anything you have a patent for. This gives you the ability to take anyone who unlawfully steals your IP to court. However, it’s important to know that IP defense is not a free service. This is why having efficient representation in court is also key to the success of your IP defense tactics.
