An Assertive Alabama Intellectual Property Law Firm
Preserving the value of your ideas
Intellectual property originates in the mind of the creator. The attorneys at Harris & Harris, LLP zealously protect ideas and preserve their potential financial value through:
- Trade secrets
Reaping the rewards of innovation through patent
You deserve to reap the rewards of your innovative invention. You can protect the value of your novel, useful invention, or improvement by registering it with the U.S. Patent Office. Our attorneys conduct a thorough patents search. After determining that your design is unique, our attorneys assist you in completing and filing your application. If other companies infringe upon your patent rights, we demand they cease and desist unauthorized use, and we aggressively pursue compensation for damages.
Protecting your art products through copyright
You have the exclusive right to the use, production, duplication and distribution of a piece of art you have produced. In addition to the financial benefits it provides, copyright protects the integrity of your work by allowing you to direct the manner in which it is used. Covering a wide spectrum of talents, copyright protects books, photographs, musical compositions, computer programs, movies and many other types of work product. Our attorneys register your work with the U.S. Copyright Office and defend it against unauthorized use.
Preserving your business image through trademark
A company’s unauthorized use of your branding, logo, picture or design creates confusion that can tarnish your business’ reputation. Even a product with a similar look can negatively affect your image. Our attorneys file your trademark with the U.S. Patent Office. If infringement occurs, we assertively seek an injunction to stop further use and sue the infringer for damages.
Safeguarding your business’ trade secrets
A formula, recipe, method, process or plan is the cornerstone of your business’ success. When these unique functions are revealed, your company’s value is severely compromised. We help you protect your business secrets through nondisclosure agreements and employment protocol. If an employee or outside party releases protected information, our attorneys doggedly pursue your legal remedies, while taking methodical steps to minimize damage to your company.
