Intellectual property (IP) is a broad term that describes creative works such as inventions, art, music, and literature as well as the symbols, names and images used by businesses in commerce. At Law Offices of Pedram Amini, our experienced attorneys help clients in the Encino area and throughout California secure and protect the value of their creations through copyrights, trademarks, and trade secret protections. We understand the complexities of these cases and draw on extensive knowledge of IP law to represent your rights effectively.
You have an exclusive right to the work you produce when you put it into a tangible form, such as a book, photograph, musical composition, computer program or movie. Your work automatically gains federal copyright protection upon production. Our attorneys can help you register your work with the U.S. Copyright Office to protect it from unauthorized use, reproduction or distribution.
A trademark protects your commercial branding, logo, picture or design from use by others. Even use of a confusingly similar look, name or logo can constitute trademark infringement, when another entity tries to benefit from your IP and, in doing so, decrease its value to you. Our attorneys file your trademark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. If infringement occurs, we seek an injunction to stop further use and sue the infringer for damages.
A formula, recipe, method, process or plan distinctive to your business constitutes a trade secret. Trade secrets are intrinsic to the success of your company and give you a competitive edge. When these unique functions are revealed, your company’s value is compromised. We can help you protect your business through detailed nondisclosure agreements and by assisting with sound employment protocols. If an employee or outside party discloses protected information, our attorneys will work to minimize damage to your company.
To ensure you receive the full value of your intellectual property, Law Offices of Pedram Amini will take action to preserve your rights to your creations through copyrights, trademarks, patents and other protections. Call us at 818-528-5272 or
