How Can a Business Protect its Intellectual Property?

Depending on an organization’s needs, several options can be used to protect intellectual property. These legal options include:


A copyright allows the creator or owner of an original work the exclusive right to copy, distribute, adapt, and display their creative work. Some examples include artwork, software, literary works, music, and other compositions.


A trademark may be any logo, design, symbol, word, or phrase a business or organization uses that quickly identifies its goods or services. For example, a business will often use its logo on its website to make it easily identifiable. Trademarks are also vital because they are a legal avenue that helps businesses fight fraud and counterfeiting.


Patents are a valuable legal resource that helps inventors safeguard their designs or inventions. Patents must be registered through the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). A patent allows the inventor to have exclusive rights to use or sell their design or product for a specific period of time.

There are three types of patents which include:

  • Design patent: A design patent protects the features of the invention, including its shape and appearance.
  • Utility patent: A utility patent applies to the mechanics of the inventions, including how and when the product may be used.
  • Plant patent: A plant patent applies to new varieties of plants that may be developed.

What Can My Business Do if Someone Infringes on My Intellectual Property Rights?

If your business has already taken steps to protect its intellectual property, but someone infringes on those rights, there are legal steps that can be taken to resolve the problem.

One of the first steps is typically to send a “cease and desist” letter to the party who has infringed on your IP. The cease and desist letter often makes it easy to rectify the issue.

Sadly, many individuals or businesses fail to take heed of the cease and desist letter, and it becomes necessary to pursue litigation. However, not all lawyers are qualified to handle intellectual property dispute issues.

Intellectual property lawyers have the skills and in-depth experience to handle IP disputes and achieve favorable client results.

Venerable Law is a law firm that focuses on helping clients protect their intellectual property. If you are aware of someone else using your IP but are trying to figure out what you can do, contact our intellectual property attorney so that we can help you maintain your legal rights.

As a side note, it also may become necessary to report parties who have infringed on IP rights to the authorities. As a result, parties who have violated the law may face criminal prosecution for their illegal use of another party’s IP.

What are the Benefits of Protecting My Business’s Intellectual Property?

Businesses often focus on building their brand and increasing their profit margin. However, protecting intellectual property is essential today, and many brands are instantly recognized by their logos or slogans.

Some of the most beneficial advantages of protecting your individual or business’s intellectual property include:

  • Being able to profit from your unique idea or invention.
  • Secure funding by using your protected IP as collateral for loans.
  • Increase your brand awareness in the market.
  • Increase the value of your business or individual invention through IP protection.

However, to truly benefit from your individual or business’s intellectual property, you must take proactive steps to ensure that it is fully protected under various state and federal laws.

Venerable Law has comprehensive experience in helping clients protect their current IP and any others in the development stages.
