No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
As worldwide commerce and communication accelerates, small businesses and entrepreneurs are becoming increasingly vulnerable to theft of their intellectual property. Valuable ideas and work products are at risk of being stolen by companies eager to profit from the creativity of others.
Our intellectual property dispute team at Searcy Denney will fight for your rights if someone pirates your ideas or work products. When we represent you, our goal is to hold wrongdoers accountable for their actions and achieve a fair recovery for your losses.
If you hold a copyright, patent, or trademark to protect your work products or processes, you have the right to prevent others from using these products and processes without your permission.
The most common types of intellectual property include:
Registration with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is required to protect patents and trademarks. Although it is helpful to register copyrighted material, it is not always required. Trade secrets cannot be registered.
If another company or individual discovers one of your ideas or creations and appropriates it for its own purposes, you should discuss your situation with one of our Florida intellectual property attorneys. At Searcy Denney, we understand the significant damage that intellectual property theft can have on businesses large or small, and especially on entrepreneurs.
We are prepared to take on the challenge of defending your rights, even against well-funded and powerful adversaries.
