Your Ideas Are Worth Legal Protection
There are laws, both state and federal, that protect your intellectual property. You might be a business owner with a trademark or trade secrets, or a writer, a musician or an artist out to protect your copyrights. If you have any intellectual property, you do not want anyone to steal your thunder – or your hard work.
Call us if your work, name, logo or slogan were used without permission. You have the right to protect your property. We can also defend you if someone accused you of using copyrighted materials or a trademark without permission. The Heed Law Group, P.L.L.C., led by our principal attorney Tom Heed, can defend you against accusations and protect your trademarked or copyrighted materials.
What Constitutes Trademark Infringement?
This is when someone intentionally uses your branded words or logo to market their goods or services. If you have been accused of trademark infringement or want to protect your intellectual property, consult a trademark attorney.
What Is Copyright Infringement?
According to the U.S. Copyright Office, this happens when someone reproduces, distributes, performs, publicly displays or intentionally copied your work without permission. If you have a trade secret, a trademark or creative work, it is intellectual property. If someone stole your work, it can lead to criminal penalties.
