Providing Trusted Intellectual Property Search | White Plains, NY

As your company brand grows, you may want to ensure that another business is not already using a trademark that’s identical or similar to what you are using. Violating someone else’s trademark rights could be costly as you may have to change products, brochures, letterheads, business cards, signs, advertisements, and/or your website. The United States Patent and Trademark Office offers the ability to run trademark searches, but it is highly recommended that an Intellectual Property Consultant, or Client Service Representative who is familiar with the search logic assist you.

Intellectual property is an invaluable asset for businesses looking to protect themselves and maximize their profits. Investing in a comprehensive intellectual property search can be highly beneficial, allowing you to make informed decisions regarding your business portfolio.

What are Intellectual Property Rights?

Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) are the legal rights that creators have over their creations, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, symbols, names and images used in commerce. These rights allow creators to control how their creations are used by others to protect their financial interests from unauthorized use. Intellectual property is divided into two main categories:

  • Industrial property – which includes patents for inventions, trademarks for symbols or logos, and industrial designs for aesthetic aspects of products; and
  • Copyright – which covers literary and artistic works like books, music, film, art and software.

What Is Intellectual Property Infringement?

Intellectual property infringement is any violation of the exclusive rights held by the owner of the intellectual property. This can include making copies of a copyrighted work without permission, using another’s trademark without permission, or using a patented invention without authorization. An infringer may also be guilty of contributing to an infringing activity if they provide material aid or assistance to an individual or organization that is infringing on a protected work.

Types of Intellectual Property

A comprehensive intellectual property search helps ensure that your ideas are both legally protected and monetized.

There are four main types of Intellectual Property:

  1. Patents – which protect inventions so that other people are not allowed to use them without permission from the patent holder.
  2. Trademarks – which identify unique goods or services so that other people cannot copy them and pass off their own products as originating from another source.
  3. Copyrights – protect original works of authorship including literary, music videos and other media formats from being reproduced without permission from the author.
  4. Trade Secrets protect confidential information such as recipes or business practices from being disclosed to competitors illegally.

Additionally, there are two more types of IPR: Designs – which protect visual features applied to products; and Geographical Indications – which identify goods that originate from a specific geographic origin.
