Gonzalo Law represents U.S. and International individuals and companies to protect their intellectual property. We help them understand the process and requirements. As a law firm who focuses on intellectual property, we register trademarks and copyrights at the state, federal, and international level. Some of our areas of focus include:
Int'l Trademark & Copyright Registration
Trademark registrations are jurisdictional. This means that in order to protect your trademark internationally, you must register the trademark in each individual country in which you want you trademark to be protected. Copyright registration, on the other hand, will be applicable internationally. Registration of a Copyright is only necessary once as long as the U.S. is in a Copyright Treaty with the country you want copyright protection from.
Trademark and Copyright Licensing
Trademark Licensing is the process through which the owner or licensor of the trademark allows another individual or party to license the trademarked good, product, or service for usage. The same process can be used when the owner desires to license a Copyright.
USPTO Trademark Appeals and Responses
When registering a Trademark with the USPTO, there are cases in which the USPTO can deny the registration. Trademark appeals and responses serve to argue on behalf of the trademark and deem it appropriate of Trademark protection.
Corrective Advertising counseling
Corrective advertising can result from the courts restricting or denying a business from any further advertising practice. Counseling in this matter can help companies find alternative ways to advertise or correct their unethical or fraudulent advertising behavior.
Intellectual Property Portfolio Advisement
An intellectual property portfolio is a collection of all the intellectual property registered under an individual or businesses’ name. The creation of this portfolio can prove extremely beneficial as it will detail all of the intellectual property that creates financial value to a business or individual. Advisement on this portfolio is highly recommended.
Cease and Desist Letters
Cease and Desist Letters serve as demand letters to individuals urging to stop illegal activities being performed. These letters also serve as warnings to individuals detailing that if they do not stop certain actions, further legal action will be pursued.
