Without the right intellectual property protections, your new product ideas and inventions are just as likely to benefit another business as your own. This is because copyrights, patents, trademarks, and other similar intellectual property protections afford you and the individuals or entities you choose with certain rights to use and reproduce the invention. Intellectual property law is exceedingly complex; therefore, obtaining the proper protection for your invention or creation is best accomplished with the experienced guidance of a California intellectual property lawyer.
Obtaining intellectual property protection for your invention or creation is not sufficient if the protection obtained is the wrong type of protection given the nature of your invention. In fact, having the wrong protection in place is like having no protection at all. Consider the benefits and applicability of the following:
Failing to obtain the right form(s) of intellectual property protection – or failing to obtain any protection at all – leaves your creations and inventions open to infringement and copying. For example, failing to obtain a patent for your new idea or invention means that a competitor can take your idea or design and develop it, improve upon it, and/or sell it. In certain extreme circumstances, your competitor may be able to obtain a patent for your idea – and then move to stop you from further developing or marketing your idea.
