Trademarks, Copyrights, and You

If you’re a business owner or marketing manager you know the value of a good trademark and you know the importance of copyrighting your products, your services, and your brand. You may know the importance of doing this, but do you have the means to go about it in the correct way? Do you have an in-house attorney who will make sure your trademarks are registered correctly and knows how to go after those who may try to infringe on your rights?

If your firm is not big enough to afford an attorney like this consider turning to Alpina Legal. We specialize in helping businesses with a variety of legal questions specific to forming, operating, and growing a business.

When you’re set to trademark or register trademark one of your product names, for example, we can help you ensure that you’re not infringing on another company’s trademarks, helping you avoid the possibility of a lawsuit. Once you know your trademark is not taken, we can help you register it and take care of all the legalities to ensure it is legitimate.

Let’s say you’re an artist, a writer, a musician, or a photographer, you will want to copyright your work. Why? The copyright shows that you own the work and you control what happens to it. If you have a copyright, you get to decide whether copies are made, how it will be distributed or sold, whether it is adapted or new works are generated from it, as well as the right to decide how it will be performed or displayed. As a creative person, you most likely don’t want to spend your time wading through the legal issues with regard to your creation, that’s why we at Alpina Legal can take care of all those legalities for you.
