Based in Miami, Xander Law Group prides itself on developing efficient solutions when it comes to intellectual property – especially trademarks and copyright infringements.
According to The Florida Bar, “Intellectual property is the body of law that protects the fruits of human intelligence: our inventions, our creative works, and the logos and brand names that we adopt for the goods and services we sell.”
The world of trademarks and copyright infringements can be difficult to navigate, which is why Xander Law Group is here to help you with your intellectual property issues every step of the way.
Trademarks And Copyright Basics
In a world full of competition, it’s critical to come up with artistic works, designs, and inventions to set ourselves apart. While these tangible and intangible ideas are original, it’s often difficult to secure and enforce legal rights over them.
Xander Law Group helps individuals and companies best determine their intellectual property rights as well as the best course of action to protect copyright laws, federal patents, state trade secret laws, and trademarks.
Our attorneys also handle other unfair competition disputes such as false advertising, non-compete clauses, trade dress, trade names, trademark counterfeiting, and trademark dilution.
What Is A Trademark?
We are exposed to hundreds, if not thousands, of trademarks every day. According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), “A trademark can be any word, phrase, symbol, design, or a combination of these things that identifies your goods or services. It’s how customers recognize you in the marketplace and distinguish you from your competitors.” Trademarks exist to help individuals and businesses sell products and better build their brands.
What Is A Copyright?
Unlike a lot of well-known trademarks, copyrights can be more difficult to recognize. According to the U.S. Copyright Office, “Copyright is a type of intellectual property that protections original works of authorship as soon as an author fixes the work in a tangible form of expression.” Independent creations or original works show a lesser degree of creativity. Once the work is fixed in a way that shows the creator captures the work in a permanent medium that proves creativity, it is considered fixed.
Examples of creative works can include but are not limited to:
- Architectural Works
- Blog Posts
- Computer Programs
- Musical Compositions
- Sound Recordings
What’s The Difference?
Understanding the difference between a copyright and a trademark is often confusing. Where a trademark protects designs, symbols, and words that help to identify the company, copyrights protect the original works of authorship. Simply, copyrights do not identify the source of a good or service.
