FORMS OF IP PROTECTION
Let’s start with the basics: What are the most common forms of intellectual property and how might they be used to protect my business activities?
Patents allow you to prevent others from making, using, or selling a product or process embodying the claimed technology. Utility patents cover the functional aspects of devices, systems, formulations, methods, and the like. A utility patent can be obtained for almost any novel, non-obvious idea that provides a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Design patents cover the ornamental aspects of utilitarian devices. Plant patents cover new plant varieties. Learn more.
A trademark is anything that is capable of identifying the source of goods or services. Trademarks are typically words or phrases but may also be formed by or include other features such as graphic elements, colors, a sequence of musical notes, and architectural features. Learn more.
Copyrights prevent others from copying, altering, or making derivatives of original works of authorship without permission; examples of copyrightable works include commercial graphics, instruction manuals, and advertising materials. A copyright gives the author a bundle of related rights. Learn more.
Allow you to restrict the distribution and use of confidential information if the information is capable of being maintained in confidence and steps are in fact taken to prevent unauthorized disclosure of the information.
