Trademarks & Copyrights Attorneys & Legal Services

From logos and brand names to photos and text, trademark and copyright laws fight plagiarism and protect your rights. At Henningson & Snoxell, our intellectual property lawyers are furnished with the resources and the experience to manage federal and state registration of all identifying marks, services and creative works, including the protection of:

  • Trademarks (Logos, Business Names, Other Identifying Marks)
  • Service Marks (Identifying Services-Insurance, Real Estate, Technology, Transportation, etc.)
  • Copyrights (Unique Designs, Text, Photos, Software, Computer Programs, other Creative Works)

While you are entitled to certain common law rights without filing an appropriate trademark or copyright, these rights are enhanced through federal registration of the mark. Registering a trademark or copyright gives your company the general presumption of rights to the mark and allows you to use the annotation symbol ® rather than the symbol TM. If litigation arises with other parties claiming to have prior use of the mark, the claimant would possess the burden of proving such a claim. Finally, registration gives you the statutory right to request attorneys’ fees after successfully defending such claims against you.

Failure to register a federal trademark, service mark or copyright can make the process of obtaining injunctive relief or other relief challenging.
