March 2020:
     Intellectual property rights protection was on display this week as the drug industry used its influence in Washington to fight off efforts to cut into its profits.
     Industry lobbyists successfully blocked attempts to include language in the emergency coronavirus spending bill that would have threatened intellectual property rights for any vaccines and treatments the government decides are priced unfairly.

     February 2020: According to Ewans Somerville of the Evening Standard, "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's bid to trademark the Sussex Royal brand has been blocked after a legal complaint by an Australian doctor. Prince Harry and Meghan's plans to transform their title into a multi-billion pound global brand were thrown into doubt by the complaint. He states that the couple first applied to the Intellectual Property Office in June 2019 for the trademark, leading to a mandatory “opposition period” for members of the public to raise objections. It was due to end on February 20, 2020, but now Benjamin Worcester, an independent doctor from Melbourne, has sent a “notice of threatened opposition”, IPO documents show, leading to the period being extended until March 2020". 


We provide legal services to creators from all walks of life. We routinely help secure, safeguard, protect and enforce copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets.

The competitive advantage of many entrepreneurs and businesses is contained within their intellectual property. Protecting these intangible assets is vitally important. Just as important is enforcing intellectual property rights through litigation or other means of dispute resolution.

With the advent of the internet, location has become less of a concern for intellectual property law firms and the clients they serve. A great amount of our work is carried out electronically. We are equipped to assist clients locally, as well as throughout the United States and internationally. 

We welcome the opportunity to review your intellectual property legal matter and recommend an effective course of action.

In today’s highly competitive business world, building a strong brand is vital to maintaining a competitive edge. Protecting your brand through trademarks is essential. A trademark is any word, name, symbol, or design, or any combination there of, used in commerce to identify and distinguish the goods of one manufacturer or seller from those of  another and to indicate the source of the goods.

We are committed to providing you with the strategy to help your business flourish in the marketplace.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual property (IP) is any product of the human intellect that the law protects from unauthorized use by others.  We are dedicated to ensuring that our clients maintain control over their IP through the proper application of the relevant protections. Our clients range from startups, manufacturers, musicians, movie producers, and actors whose sole product is their IP, to clients where IP is a secondary concern. We are prepared to help protect your IP through the application of trade secret law, non-disclosure agreements, copyright protection, and trademark registration and enforcement.

Trade Secrets

Trade Secret law is one of the oldest forms of IP protection, and unlike Patents and Copyrights, such protection can last infinitely, provided that the secret meets three criteria. The definition of a Trade Secret is: 1) Information; 2) That has had reasonable measures taken to maintain its secrecy; 3) And which confers independent economic value derived from its secrecy upon its holder.

Non-Disclosure Agreements, Trademark, and Copyright Law

Trade Secret protection would be almost irrelevant if it weren’t for the protections afforded by non disclosure agreements (NDAs). Trademarks identify the brand owner of a product or a service, and companies and individuals can license the use of their Trademarks to others through licensing agreements. Copyright law protects original works of authorship fixed in a tangible medium.

Supreme Court to the Rescue

The Supreme Court recently resolved an important issue for trademarks when it held that a debtor cannot reject a trademark license under Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code without breaching the license, thereby preserving the licensee’s rights to the licensed trademark.

The Supreme Court will review Oracle America, Inc. v. Google, Inc.

The Supreme Court has announced that it will review Oracle America, Inc. v. Google Inc. in which the Federal Circuit held that Google’s use of Java’s APIs in making the Android platform violated copyright law because it was not sufficiently transformative to qualify as a “fair use.”

February 23, 2020

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to stop using their "SussexRoyal" brand from spring 2020.

The couple had been in discussions with aides and senior royals about using the name following their decision this year to step back from royal duties.
But a spokesperson for the couple said it was agreed the word "royal" could not be used due to government rules.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were seeking to register the “Sussex Royal” brand as a global trademark for a range of items and activities including clothing, stationery, and the running of emotional support groups, international filings suggest.

The application covering Australia, Canada, the EU and US was filed in December with the World Intellectual Property Organization but has been withdrawn.
