Boston Intellectual Property Lawyer

Intellectual property is defined as a work or invention that was created by a party that applied for a patent, copyright, or trademark. Property issues come up frequently in Boston business dealings, for small to large businesses and for individuals as well. If your intellectual property was stolen by another, or you have been accused of infringing upon another’s patent, copyright, or trademark, you need to contact an lawyer at once. The Boston intellectual property lawyers of The Baez Law Firm offer professional legal representation to parties that need to defend their property or those who need to defend their right to use intellectual works that are, in fact, not the property of another. Call us today for assistance.

Patents in Boston

A patent gives the owner of it the sole ability to sell their invention within the U.S. The U.S. patent system has been in place virtually since the country was founded. George Washington signed the 1790 Patent Act, according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Patent law gives the owner of the patent the right to exclude others from making, using, offering for sale, or selling the invention or importing it into the U.S., and most patents are granted for a period of 20 years. Issues arise when there is a dispute between two parties regarding the similarities, or lack thereof, between the patented product and a competitor’s copy, or original work.

Boston Copyright Infringement

The Copyright Act of 1976 protects original authorship of artistic, dramatic, and literary works, including:

  • Television;
  • Movies;
  • Novels;
  • Poetry;
  • Architecture;
  • Songs;
  • Computer software; and
  • Plays.

Unlike a patent, ownership exists immediately upon creation of the work–before any application is requested or granted from the U.S. federal government.

Trademark Law

Companies use slogans, names, jingles, and other marketing ploys to distinguish their products and brands from those of others. Trademarks give the owning party legal property of words, names, symbols, or other devices that are used to distinguish goods from the goods of another. Issues regarding trademarks arise when one business seeks to use a similar trademark, such as a similar design or slogan. Using a similar trademark can be legally acceptable, particularly when the two parties compete in different markets (one makes fine jewelry and the other is a distributor of children’s school supplies, for example). However, even if your company is clearly in the right, in your opinion, to use a trademark that may or may not be similar to another’s, you will need an lawyer to avoid serious legal ramifications.
