Intellectual Property Attorneys in Grand Rapids

Generally, the rights of intellectual property owners are based on federal patent law, trademark law, copyright laws, and state trade secret laws. As an overview, patents protect tangible inventions (for example, a widget); copyrights protect various forms of written and artistic expression (books or architectural designs); and trademarks protect a name or symbol that identifies the source of goods or services (brand name or logo).

At Keilen Law, we can help you secure your rights in copyrightable material, a trademark, or we can help you license your patent. Business lawyers use contracts to help you maximize and protect your ideas. In addition, there are specific terms that are required for intellectual property assignments; therefore, clients should always meet with their business lawyer to carefully protect and or assign intellectual property.
