How Mount Bonnell can Help you to Protect and Monetize Your Intellectual Assets
The concept of intellectual property is vital to patent protection. Patents specifically protect inventions and innovations, and your intellectual property can include a huge variety of important business creations such as inventions, art, writing, computer programs and business branding, to name a few.
Because of the ever-evolving nature of technological advances that allow you to create and monetize your intellectual property, and the fast pace at which the law attempts to keep up with these advances, IP Law is one of the most difficult areas for international entrepreneurs to understand.
However, it’s vitally important that you access the right advice if you want to work within the U.S., as there are different state and federal legislation to understand, as well as international conventions to adhere to.
So, let’s explore below how Mount Bonnell can help guide you through this complex area.
If your business requires the creation of and/or the exploitation of copyrights then you need to ensure that your assets are correctly registered and protected against copyright infringement.
The trusted and experienced IP attorneys we work with assist businesses with comprehensive IP issues. They can help with all aspects of the protection, prosecution and enforcement of your creative works, including motion pictures, comic books, fashion designs, video games, apps, software and iconic fictional characters.
They have been at the center of many headline-making copyright cases, so you can be sure you are receiving the very best and most up-to-date support for all your copyright protection needs.
Your business brand can take a huge amount of resources to effectively create and build. It is one of the key ways you can build recognition and goodwill towards your business. It’s also a hugely useful tool when it comes to increasing your visibility as you expand into the U.S., as well as maintaining or growing your international presence. This means it’s vital that you get support in creating and protecting your brand.
The skilled attorneys MBA’s work with can provide you with expert advice on all stages of your business brand, from the initial stages and planning of your brand, through enforcing your rights in that brand once it has become established.
You might wish to enforce your brand rights with respect to your business name, a slogan, your logo, product packaging, your store designs or even a distinctive sound or color. The attorneys we work with can help you with all of these aspects and have worked with a wide array of businesses, including emerging companies and international corporations with worldwide trademark portfolios.
One of the core components of the successful international entrepreneur is the ability to translate a great idea or product into effective monetization. When it comes to turning ideas into dollars, businesses that deal with intellectual property are constantly faced with complex transactions. This can range from basic work-for-hire agreements, through lucrative license purchase agreements involving a myriad of rights.
At MBA, we’ve teamed up with our trusted attorneys to offer you specialized IP services that will help you to navigate complex transactions associated with the acquisition, licensing and disposition of a wide range of IP assets. We can offer you valuable advice to assist you at every stage of your creative process– from the inception of discussions to the execution of the transaction.
As an international entrepreneur, you are well aware of the ever-changing and evolving nature of business technologies, especially when it relates to the internet and mobile-based businesses. As these technologies are evolving so too are the laws that affect them.
For many businesses, mobile-based and internet ventures are their main source of revenue, and it’s vital that they stay up-to-date on their compliance with and utilization of applicable IP laws and their latest iterations.
The IP attorneys we work with can advise you on a range of regulations that might affect your business, such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). They can also help the busy international entrepreneur get to grips with the latest tools available to enforce traditional intellectual property rights in this evolving market. Areas to consider might include the take-down procedures of popular social media channels and ICANN UDRP disputes against cybersquatters.
As your company grows, you might want to implement new branding or fresh content into your product that may be owned by a third party. It’s important you understand and use the correct clearance procedures. It’s also necessary that when you are planning on buying or selling any intellectual property that the assets you are interested in monetizing do not come up against any legal obstacles.
The attorneys we work with are skilled in assisting international entrepreneurs with the review and clearance of potential and existing IP to avoid any potential costly legal problems. They can also offer guidance and support that will help you to avoid any future legal issues that could arise.
As an entrepreneur with interest in international and U.S, business markets, it’s extremely important that you establish robust terms of service with regards to your website and users’ rights.
This is especially pertinent if you offer Software as a Service (SaaS) to other businesses or directly to customers, as you may rely on these terms to govern each transaction.
The attorneys MBA work with will guide you through these tasks as well as help you to address any issues that arise relating to the acquisition and disposition of domain names.
Starting a business in the U.S. can be both exhilarating and exasperating. There is much to know and even more to learn, and the pace of the information coming at you can be overwhelming.
