Trademarks and Copyright

Practice Areas

Trademark and copyrights cover two different aspects of your business and ideas. A trademark includes any combination of a word, symbol, phrase, or name used in commerce and differentiates the goods from one producer and another. A trademark is also known as a brand name. A copyright is the original work of an artist or author that is fixed in a medium. A Des Moines trademark attorney at Iowa Defenders can help you decide what is the best route to take to ensure your rights are considered and treated fairly.

You have common law rights that do not require filing paperwork for your trademark or copyright, however, if you have filed such paperwork, your rights are increased. Without the necessary paperwork, if litigation ensues it will make it more difficult to prove that you have the rights to your trademark or copyright. Your attorney can help you to gather evidence or any possible documentation to help your case.
