Trademark and Other Intellectual Property

Many people do not understand the differences among different types of intellectual property (IP) and the advantages and costs of each form of protection. We do!

The Hoffman Patent Firm has extensive experience in advising clients regarding other forms of IP, including trademark, copyright, trade secrets, unfair competition, designs, Internet domain names, and Internet privacy matters. We have a long-standing trademark-application practice and have enforced trademarks and copyrights as well as patents.

The goal of IP is to support business activity and obtain fair compensation for use of ideas and other “property of the mind.”

Article I, Section 8, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution grants Congress the power to pass IP laws to encourage invention and improvements:

Article I, Section 8, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution explains the point of IP:
To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries
