Litigation and IP Disputes Attorney
Intellectual property refers to the creations of the mind, such as literary compositions, artistic works, inventions, names, images, designs, and symbols used in commerce. Creators, authors, and inventors have exclusive rights to control and use their creations through patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets.
When a company or individual unlawfully uses these products or services for their own benefit, they may have violated established intellectual property protections.
In those situations, it may be time to contact the legal team at BOAG Law. We can assist in protecting your IP through dispute resolution and litigation.
Handling Intellectual Property Disputes
When there is a dispute involving your intellectual property, it may be necessary to exercise your legal rights. Individuals or companies can infringe upon or violate your intellectual property rights when they engage in the following actions:
- Trade secret misappropriation
- Copyright, patent, and trademark infringement
- Unfair competition
In these cases, there could be issues with licensing, ownership, infringement, and misuse of these intellectual property assets. These infringement issues are complex and require working with a legal team that understands how to resolve these cases.
Generally, these disputes are handled in several ways, including:
Any intellectual property is a valuable asset to an individual or a business. Sometimes, these issues are simple mistakes by an individual or company, while others are caused by those who knowingly use your IP without regard for the laws. No matter the reason, when these IP disputes occur, you need effective legal representation to resolve these issues.
When the above methods for resolving IP disputes are unsuccessful, it could be time to consider litigation.
What Is IP Litigation?
Like any other type of litigation, your legal team will file a lawsuit against the offending party in court. These disputes often center around trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets. With an infringement case, the holder uses the lawsuit to protect their intellectual property rights and prevent any infringing activity of their creation.
However, some lawsuits are frivolous, as the defendant has the legal right to use intellectual property. In those cases, the party can also file a lawsuit to invalidate the holder’s IP rights as they defend their actions against the infringement allegations.
Whether you are enforcing your existing intellectual property rights or defending yourself against false allegations, you need a skilled IP lawyer who understands the rules and procedures of these cases.
