A federally-registered trademark of your name and logo provides protection against infringement anywhere in the United States.
The intellectual property of a nonprofit can be one of its most significant assets. Therefore, properly protecting intellectual property is critical. There are two components to this: filing trademarks and copyrights, and defending against the improper use of trademarked or copyrighted material by third-parties. Business names, taglines, logos, and written text can often be protected by trademarking or copywriting the material. We explain the process of obtaining a trademark or copyright to you, help you determine the most suitable means of protecting your intellectual property, and prepare the necessary filings. Defending against the improper use of our clients’ intellectual property involves filing any necessary objections with the US Patent & Trademark Office and sending Cease and Desist letters to the infringing third-parties.
There are also instances when clients license their intellectual property to others or seek to license from others. In such instances, we can negotiate licensing terms with the other party, and draft any necessary Licensing Agreements.
