Copyright & Trademark
Protecting intellectual property from unauthorized use or infringement can be a complicated matter. Although copyright protection is governed by Federal Copyright Law, there are common situations in which State Law can intersect, such as with licensing the use of protected material. Trademark protection can also be governed by both Federal and State Law as well.
While the focus of Copyright Law is the expression of an original idea, Trademark Law applies to the first use of a mark that is associated with a product or service. In business, copyrights and trademarks can intersect. In other words, a copyrighted design can also serve as a trademark.
