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.
