Trademark and Copyright in NYC
We’ve all seen the small “Tm,” "R," or “C” symbols that signify trademarks and copyrights, but do you really know what these symbols mean? Whether you’re an established business owner or a budding entrepreneur with a startup, you better hope so. Of course, a simple understanding doesn’t mean you’re an expert at intellectual property. That’s what our NYC trademark and copyright lawyers are for.
You honestly better believe that we at Fisher Stone took the time to legally protect all of our intellectual property. Otherwise we might have a "Fisher Stone" sign on every street corner trying to profit off our work. That's not going to happen with us, and we want to make sure it doesn't happen to you either.
Trademark vs. Copyright
What Trademarks Protect
- Branding information
- Words, names, symbols, sounds, colors
- Anything that distinguishes one product/corporation from another
What Copyright Protects
- Literary, dramatic, musical, artistic works
- Various types of intellectual work
- Books, videos, audio, reports
Nuances to Intellectual Property
Some people think that reading an article about intellectual property online immediately makes them experts. In reality, it’s possible to spend years studying trademark and copyright protection and still not fully understand it all. After all, who would think you could trademark a color? From Tiffany Blue to T-Mobile Magenta, it’s been done.
While we might seem a little biased in saying this, we honestly believe that having a corporate attorney handle your intellectual property issues is in your best interest. We can help you avoid using property that’s already trademarked - because that can be awfully embarrassing for your business if discovered.
