What is Intellectual Property?

The term “intellectual property” may be confusing to anyone without a legal background, as property usually refers to physical assets such as real estate and personal belongings. However, there are many types of property that are intangible assets. For example:

  • Intellectual and artistic works such as music, books and images can be protected by copyright
  • A company’s logo can be trademarked to prevent other businesses from using it. 
  • Inventions and unique products are patented to protect an invention or type of process

Whether you’re an individual or business, you can take proactive steps to protect your intellectual property rights with the three IP items mentioned above. You can also take action if you believe someone has violated your rights. Stanton IP Law Firm is an intellectual property law firm that Tampa Bay and people everywhere can count on to help with any IP issues.

Why Hire a Florida IP Lawyer?

There are a number of reasons you might want to hire an intellectual property (IP) attorney. 

  • Register copyrights.
    To some extent, your original works are protected by US copyright laws automatically. For example, if you write a book and someone plagiarizes it, you have a case against them even if you didn’t file copyright. However, filing copyright provides you with additional protection. For example, someone might copy your work and then claim that they created it first. Filing copyright proves you are the original creator.
  • Take action when someone violates your intellectual property rights.
    If you already have a patent, you may need to protect it. We can determine, for example, if someone has violated your patent with a similar idea or product and advise you on the best litigation strategy.

“In my opinion, all previous advances in the various lines of invention will appear totally insignificant when compared with those which the present century will witness. I almost wish that I might live my life over again to see the wonders which are at the threshold.”
