What Type of IP Protection Do You Need?

Protecting your intellectual property through federal filings helps you maintain the exclusive right to profit from your creations. 

  • Trademarks and service marks protect things like brand names, taglines and logos. 
  • Copyrights protect creative works such as songs, novels, movies and software.
  • Utility and Design Patents protect inventions.

Some businesses require multiple types of intellectual property protection to create a strong barrier against infringement. Rather than wasting a ton of time conducting internet research and guessing about which type of protection is right for your situation, purchase a small business plan from LegalShield and get the legal help you need to make smart decisions.

File for Patents, Trademarks and Copyrights Correctly

Intellectual property law is tricky. Not only do you have to select the right protection, the applications you submit to the U.S. Patent and Trademark office must follow the law to the letter, and the requirements can be complex and nuanced.  

Intellectual property lawyers are considered specialists within the practice of law, often requiring training beyond law school. For example, patent lawyers often have an engineering or science degree on top of their legal degree. 

Small business plans from LegalShield include 3 consultations per year with an intellectual property lawyer. Also, you can download templates and forms from our website and have your lawyer review them to make sure everything is in order before you file your applications.
