As an inventor, a patent gives you a limited monopoly over your ideas by granting you the right to exclude others from making, using, and selling your invention.
What exactly does that mean?
A trademark is an identifier that sets a business, product, or service apart from its competitors.
Trademarks serve as beacons to consumers - ensuring that the products and services they purchase are from the sources they have come to know.
When you think of copyrights, think of artists.
Writers, composers, musician, architects and other artists benefit from copyright laws that give them exclusive rights over their works.
Looking to grow your business?
Licensing your patents, trademarks, copyrights, and other intellectual property to others allows you to tap into the existing production, distribution, and marketing systems that other companies have worked so hard to build.
