Protecting Your Rights Personalized and Knowledgeable Legal Representation

What's the difference between trademarks, patents and copyrights?

Often in our discussions of intellectual property, we focus on the intricacies rather than on the basic concepts. Many times, however, small business owners and entrepreneurs need help identifying what type of intellectual property they possess before they take steps to protect it.

Sirius XM wins Copyright battle with The Turtles

On February 16, Sirius XM Holdings Inc was granted a dismissal of a Copyright lawsuit pertaining to songs by the 1960s band The Turtles and other artists.

With out recognized protections for original ideas, works and inventions, there would be little incentive for people to be creative because other parties would simply steal and use their work for their own gain.

Considering life under a condominium association

In either case, purchasing a condominium unit within a COA-controlled building is nothing to take lightly.

Patent troll targets Netflix, Soundcloud over offline mode

The popular streaming service Netflix is one of numerous companies that has been targeted by a patent troll in a lawsuit. Blackbird technologies is suing Netflix -- in addition to Starz, Soundcloud, Vimeo and other companies -- in response to the streaming companies development of an "offline" mode, one that allows people to download episodes or movies that they would have access to through the paid subscription service while connected to the internet. Users would then have access to those episodes or movies even when they aren't connected to the internet.
