When you have an original work, invention or other type of valuable intellectual property, creation and protection of your rights should be a top priority. Legal creation of intellectual property rights includes copyright registration, patent application and trademark registration. Once your intellectual property rights are created, if those rights are being infringed in any way you need to be able to take advantage of the court system to prosecute your claims. The intellectual property lawyers at The Houston Trademark Copyright Attorney Law Firm are both creators and protectors. We can walk you through the complicated creation process in the U.S. Copyright Office and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, where our attorneys are licensed to practice.
The process of securing a patent or trademark can be very complicated and confusing. Our job is to secure positive results through simplifying the process for companies and inventors. Over the years, our efficiency has minimized the cost and time required to secure patent or trademark protection.
Our intellectual property practice includes litigation of patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret disputes; opinions regarding the validity and infringement of patents, patent preparation and prosecution; management of worldwide trademark programs, and software licensing.
Houston Trademark Specialists
Often, we help businesses with branding, and this typically means filing trademarks, performing trademark searches, and rendering infringement opinions when needed. Your trademark is often one of your most vital assets. When another party violates your registered trademark rights through unauthorized use, you will want vigorous legal protection. Infringement can occur when another party uses a trademark that is the same as yours or one that is similar or likely to cause confusion. Trademark infringement may also occur through dilution, when they are used for dissimilar services or products. Such cases can be complex, with courts using several criteria to determine the likelihood of confusion in the use of trademarks. A Houston trademark infringement attorney can provide comprehensive legal representation in any infringement case.
Our trademark practice includes assessment of availability of proposed marks in conjunction with particular goods and/or services by conducting trademark searching and incidental reconnaissance to gain insight into whether the proposed mark or a variation thereof has already been established in commerce. If such mark has indeed already been adopted, we consider whether the implicated goods and or services may cause likelihood of confusion or mistake with the client’s goods and/or services; or whether there maybe possible dilution or free-riding problems.
