Sometimes the most valuable asset you can own has no physical substance. The rights of parties with respect to intellectual property can be some of the most contentious issues one can face. If you create something, when do you own it? What happens when you hire someone to create something for you – who owns it then? What about licensing versus selling rights to trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets?
Joe has experience assisting clients with protecting their rights to the intellectual property they have created, purchased, developed or discovered. Whether it’s securing a trademark or service mark with the United States Patent & Trademark Office, registering a Copyright with the Library of Congress, or even filing with the North Carolina Secretary of State, taking the time to explain to the client exactly what protections can be obtained for intellectual property is vital. When the time comes to enforce those rights, knowing the ins and outs of intellectual property law lets you walk into a courtroom confident and armed with experience.
