Patent / Trademark / Copyright

Do You Need a Patent?
Do you have an invention, such as a device, composition of matter, or technical method which you do, or might wish to, use in your business, or for which you otherwise want to obtain a return on your investment? Would your business be adversely affected if you couldn’t use your invention because someone else claimed the rights to it? If so, then you may want to obtain a patent registration for your invention.
Do You Need a Trademark?
Would your business be negatively affected if someone else began using its name, logo, slogan or tag line? Would your business lose money? Would it create confusion in your customers' minds? Would the other party benefit from your businesses’ hard-earned reputation?
If you answered, "yes" to any of these questions, you should consider registering your trademark. According to the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office, a trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or design that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others.
Do You Need a Copyright?
How would your business be affected if someone else appropriated your original works of authorship? Copyright grants legal rights of ownership for a limited time to those who create writings, songs, movies, and literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works, from novels and computer software to architecture.
