Intellectual Property Litigation in Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids

For businesses in all fields, particularly those in the tech sector, as well as for artists and inventors, it is crucial that they protect their intellectual property. In some cases, this can be accomplished through tough negotiation. However, the need for litigation often arises as a result of intellectual property disputes.

At Willis Law, we are experienced negotiators and litigators with a track record of successfully protecting the intellectual property of our clients in West Michigan and beyond. If your intellectual property is being infringed on, you can rely on our lawyers to be your strongest advocates.

Protection of Copyrights and Trademarks or Servicemarks

A trademark or servicemark promotes your business's brand by protecting its logo or graphic icon, marketing phrases and certain other materials. Copyrights protect unique creative work, such as marketing materials, information on websites and other written works, for both businesses and creative professionals.

You may have heard that copyrights and trademarks are automatically conferred upon the creators or owners of such work, so you do not need to register them. However, a plaintiff in a copyright infringement case cannot file suit in federal court unless the work is registered with the United States Copyright Office. Also, filing your trademark or servicemark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office confers certain rights to obtain or enforce your mark. We can help you register this important intellectual property and develop systems and policies to protect them.

Copyright and Trademark Infringement

Trademark and copyright infringement are becoming more common, especially as the Internet grows. If you have discovered infringement of your copyright or trademark — or if someone has alleged that you are infringing upon his or her intellectual property rights — our attorneys are well-prepared to protect your interests.
