Mississippi Intellectual Property Lawyers
“Intellectual property” refers to a wide range of exclusive and semi-exclusive rights that an inventor has in the creations of his or her mind. Intellectual property is considered to be intangible property. It includes research and development; music; artistic and literary work; and certain brand logos and designs.
Whether you have created a unique brand, business logo, business name, or even an invention, it is important to take the steps necessary to protect your intellectual property from being taken and used by others. Depending on what it is that you wish to protect, there are a number of steps that must be taken.
Some types of intellectual property can only be fully protected through registration. In other situations you may also need to protect your idea and proprietary business information through non-compete and non-disclosure agreements.
The first step is always understanding your intellectual property rights and finding the right protection for you. The lawyers at Danks, Miller, & Cory have experience assisting Mississippians with all their intellectual property needs including:
