Intellectual Property Lawyers

Intellectual property refers to creations of the mind, and intellectual property law is in place to protect those creations. It is in place to protect the intellectual property rights of artists, musicians, inventors and all intellectual products or intangible assets with a perceived value (usually commercial).

What is Intellectual Property Law?

Some common forms of intellectual property include patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and industrial design rights. Most artistic endeavours fall under copyright laws, including books, songs, scripts, photographs, software and a host of related products.

Intellectual property law also covers 'industrial properties', which are typically ideas and inventions used specifically for commercial operations. This may include an invention, such as the creation of a new style or formula commonly witnessed under trademarks.

Who Needs Intellectual Property Lawyers?

The benefit of intellectual property law is to give the creator of intellectual property exclusive rights to their product. Following from this, it allows individuals full financial ownership of intellectual creations.

Intellectual property lawyers help protect an individual's intellectual property preserving ownership of any creations, and in turn this is designed to protect any future technological or creative growth. In this way, intellectual property law aims to preserve innovation and protect individuals that produce useful original ideas.

Intellectual property law can be quite complicated, and sometimes there are confusions about where certain laws are applicable or not. You may need an intellectual property lawyer if:

  • You have an original creative work you plan to distribute
  • You have created a new design, style, formula invention etc
  • Someone is stealing your intellectual property, e.g. taken your creative works or ideas and passing it off as their own
  • Someone is accusing you of stealing their intellectual property
  • Registering any trademarks, copyrights or patents

Intellectual property lawyers have specific knowledge, and this type of law is quite unique. Commonly, difficulties arise when providing proof of intellectual property. For example, it can be difficult to prove who has had an idea first, so any proof you can show (such as dated drafts, drawings etc) will help you with intellectual property law.

For further queries and advice, contact a qualified intellectual property lawyer.
