Intellectual Property Law
For a long time Zehl Law has been advising clients in the area of intellectual property (IP) and have kept pace with the growing number of issues stemming from this area of law.
Intellectual property refers to the ownership of ideas created from an individual’s mind, such as literature, music, artwork, inventions and brands. Although the main categories of intellectual property are copyrights, trademarks and patents, each of these IP’s may be registered with the government and can be owned as property by an individual or business. Trade secrets can also be recognized as Intellectual Property, however the primary protection in trade secrets are from its confidentiality, opposed to the information’s registration. Even a small startup business can have intellectual property rights in the assets of the company, such as its website, brand name, videos or photos.
