Patents are very important for inventors because they can help individuals protect their valuable ideas from others who may try to profit from an inventor’s hard work. A patent is an intellectual property right issued to that inventor from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office allowing the inventor to use, sell, license, or otherwise control that patent.
Due to its importance, patents are difficult to get because of the many steps that must be established. This means mistakes in an application can result in delays in obtaining a patent, or could result in an outright denial. This could allow others to copy your design and steal it, or bring a very similar idea to market first.
Do not let this happen to you. Ask an experienced patent lawyer for hours at Paul & Paul in Wilmington, DE, for help.
Unlike a patent, a trademark is a certain combination of words, phrases, symbols, designs, or other related identifiers that help others recognize your goods, business, services, or products. Because of the nature of a trademark that it is not tangible, and some individuals could take advantage of it by just copying and pasting onto their product or website, it is important that you have strong protections for your trademark with the help of an experienced trademark lawyer like ours at Paul & Paul.
We can help not only obtain a trademark, but also fight back against infringers. Do not let your hard work and business goodwill get attacked by an infringer or other individual/business that may try to steal your hard work, call our trademark lawyers for help.
