Philadelphia Business Lawyers
Intellectual property laws exist to protect the creations of the mind, such as the property of authors, composers, designers, and inventors. Legal protection for intellectual property can be separated into four categories: copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and patents. Our intellectual property attorneys in Philadelphia at Sidkoff Pincus & Green (SPG), located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, routinely handle litigation and other matters related to the first three categories (copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets). Copyrights protect works of authorship, such as writings, music, and works of art that have been tangibly expressed. A capable copyright lawyer will be able to assist in the application for a copyright, as well in litigation matters involving copyrights. Trademarks protect identifying marks that distinguish goods or services, such as names, logos, designs and emblems. A capable trademark lawyer will be able to assist in the application for a trademark (federal/state), as well in litigation matters involving copyrights. Trade secrets refer to proprietary and confidential business information that the owner has taken measures to keep secret and which has independent value; examples of trade secrets can include customer lists, business plans, prototypes and formulas. A capable trademark lawyer will be able to offer consultation regarding the best methods of protecting your trade secrets as well as handle litigation relating to your trade secrets.
