Patent Damages & Infringement
Patent infringement involves the crime of marketing, using, or incorporating a patented item, material, or process, without receiving authorization to do so, and without making the necessary royalty payments. It is injurious to the plaintiff in terms of lost royalties, future lost royalties, and potential damage to the reputation of their brand – or two the plaintiff themselves. For instance, the plaintiff has no control over the quality or the integrity of the product released into which their patent has been illegally incorporated. Read more.
Copyright is a form of protection provided by the laws of U.S. to those who create “original works” including literary works, movies, musical works, sound recordings, paintings, photographs, software, live performances, and television or sound broadcasts.
Owning a copyright gives an individual or organization the exclusive legal right to print, publish, perform, film, or record those “original works” or to give permission to other people to do so. When a copyright violation occurs, the copyright holder may have the right to financial compensation including their lost profits and the defendant’s profits made due to the infringement. Read more.
A trademark is a symbol, usually defined as a unique and highly recognizable phrase, design, or emblem. It is strongly associated with the identity of a brand, and is the property of the brand’s owner. Trademarks may be heavily used in advertising, but they are also typically displayed on corporate signage, packaging, and letterhead. It is increasingly common in the modern business world to find them identifying corporate buildings, and other properties as well. Trademark infringement refers to the criminal act of using a trademark without proper authorization, in association with products or services, in a way that is likely to cause confusion about where those goods or services come from.
