Intellectual Property Law

New Orleans Lawyer Helps You Protect Trade Secrets & Copyrights

Two main types of physical property exist: real property, such as land and materials that are fixed to the land; and chattel or personal property, such as movable goods. In addition to physical property, there is intellectual property, which is often more difficult to deal with because it is intangible.

Intellectual property law pertains to the protection of this kind of property and the litigation that can ensue when the property is stolen, copied, or rights are otherwise infringed upon by various parties.

Various categories of intellectual property that can be legally protected include:

  • Trade secrets such as recipes or ingredients in a particular concoction give a company an advantage over a competitor. When these secrets are leaked, then the release of the private information essentially eliminates the company's individuality and ability to compete as other companies can easily copy the product.
  • Trademarks, patents, and copyrights name the owner of the original idea for a limited amount of time.
  • Copyrights protect the interests of the owners of movies, photographs, music, books, and other media.
