Copyright Protection for Austin, TX Businesses

Copyrights protect the expression of “original works of authorship.” They are mostly used for tangible intellectual property such as screenplays, books, short stories, movies, paintings, and sculptures. Copyright laws prevent others from theft or misuse of the copyrighted work. This includes producing derivative works, distributing unauthorized copies of the work, and performing or publicly displaying the work.

Structure Law Group, LLP will help your company license copyrights, secure derivative rights, option rights, or sell off copyrights. In instances where a client’s copyright is infringed, our attorneys will help your company aggressively seek copyright enforcement. This includes serving notice, cease and desist letters, negotiating royalties, and representing you in lawsuits to recover damages caused by copyright infringement.

Trademark Protection for Austin, TX Businesses

Trademarks are intellectual property that identifies your name, logos, or any other identifying element that can be associated with your company or brand. Properly registering these trademarks is critical, because without this registration, anyone can use your name, logo, or other identifying information for whatever purposes they choose. Trademarks must be registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The trademark process should be handled by a seasoned attorney so that your application is not rejected. Trademark infringement tends to damage the reputation of businesses that do not act quickly enough to secure their trademark. The Austin, TX trademark protection attorneys at Structure Law Group will help you register your trademark and enforce your legal rights over your trademark to prevent competitors unapproved and unlicensed use.

Patents for Austin, TX Businesses

A patent is one of the most effective tools to secure your innovative intellectual property. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office offers three different types of patents:

  • Utility patents for a “new and useful process”
  • Design patents for “new, original, ornamental design for an article of manufacture”
  • Plant patents for distinct varieties of plants

Determining which patent is best for you will require the help of a knowledgeable Austin intellectual property attorney. SLG can help your Austin business confirm that your product or service is patentable, apply for a patent, and enforce your patent against any infringements.
