Types of intellectual property cases
At Goldberg & Rosen, we handle the full range of intellectual property cases, including:
Under federal copyright law, original works created by your company are protected. This may include literary works, computer programs and architectural works, among many others. This means that only the owner is able to reproduce, distribute, perform and/or display the work. If another party takes any of the above actions without permission, they are in violation of federal copyright law and must be held accountable. Our copyright attorneys can help.
When the government grants a patent to an inventor, it prohibits others from making, selling or using the invention for a set number of years. Under current U.S. patent law, the patent owner generally has exclusive rights to practice their invention for twenty years from the date they filed the application for their patent. Our experienced patent attorneys can help!
A trademark is a word, a series of words or a symbol that is used to identify a company’s products or services. It is used to communicate to consumers that the product or service is associated with a particular company, and thus will be of a certain quality and standard. As long as the trademark is in use and has not been abandoned by the owner, it is protected under both federal and state law.
A trade secret is information that a company possesses that is:
- Not known by the general public.
- Exclusively known by employees and individuals involved in the company.
- Valuable to the company.
- Difficult for others to duplicate or acquire.
- Protected by the company.
The state of Florida has adopted a version of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, which prohibits others from acquiring a trade secret by improper means, such as theft, breach, misrepresentation or bribery. When companies violate this act, our Miami intellectual property attorneys at Goldberg & Rosen will ensure they’re held accountable for their actions.
