What is Intellectual Property

Intellectual property, sometimes referred to as IP, can be categorized in the United States as Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights, and to an extent Trade Secrets. Generally speaking, intellectual property is a creation of human intellect that when placed in a tangible medium bestows upon the owner legal ownership rights to the intellectual property. This can result in a legal monopoly over the creation for a period of time. Like real property such as land, intellectual property can be bought, sold, leased and valued accordingly. Hiring an intellectual property attorney to assist with defining and protecting your intellectual property is important. If you are interested in hiring a quality intellectual property lawyer, contact Bullock Law to speak with an experienced IP attorney who can help.

What is the difference between a patent, a trademark, and a copyright

A patent gives the inventor of a product or process the right to exclude others from making, selling, or using their invention during the life of the patent. It amounts to a legal monopoly of the claimed invention during that timeframe.

A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol, or design used by a person or business in commerce to distinguish their goods or services from others within the marketplace. Trademarks may be registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Bullock Law can assist by providing a quality trademark lawyer or trademark attorney to meet your needs.

A copyright protects original literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, paintings, and architecture. A copyright protects only the artistic features of a work and does not protect underlying facts, ideas, or systems. A copyright may be registered with the U.S. Copyright Office.
