Intellectual Property Lawyers
The phrase “Intellectual property” covers a wide range of exclusive and semi-exclusive rights that an inventor has in the creations of his or her mind. Intellectual property is considered intangible property. It includes research and development; music; artistic and literary work; and certain brand logos and designs.
If you have created a unique brand, business logo, or business name or invented something new, it is important to take the steps necessary to protect your intellectual property from being taken and used by others.
Different processes and steps are required depending on what it is that you wish to protect. Some types of intellectual property can only be fully protected through registration. With other types, you may only be able to protect your proprietary business information through non-compete and non-disclosure agreements.
The first step is to understand what intellectual property rights you have and then to find the most effective protection for you. The lawyers at Danks, Miller, & Cory have experience assisting Mississippians with all their intellectual property needs, including:
