Intellectual Property


A penny for your thoughts? More like millions of dollars if it’s the right thought or nothing at all if your intellectual property isn’t properly protected. Sometimes creative value comes from a vision in the middle of the night. More often, it’s the product of endless hours spent toiling away on a keyboard and finally constructing a solution for which there is a ready market. How unfortunate, then, to see the rewards of all that effort slip away with the “trusted” employee, through copyright infringement, or by the poorly drafted licensing agreement.

Working with a range of clients from small software developers, to regional advertising firms, to multinational enterprises, Bean, Kinney & Korman provides knowledgeable intellectual property services including copyrights, trademarks, licensing, advertising law, and more.
