Protection of any intellectual property is a priority in U.S. law. The state is a party to all international acts, treaties and conventions in the field of intellectual property protection. The firm of patent attorneys Prof-Patent will provide a full range of services for registration of intellectual property rights in the United States, as well as help to enforce the legitimate interests of the right holder.
Despite its participation in international intellectual property protection acts, the U.S. has its own system of confirmation and protection of rights. The following objects may be afforded protection:
It is not necessary to go through the registration procedure to prove copyrights. However, a certificate makes it much easier to control unauthorized use of copyright and related rights.
A simplified registration procedure goes through the Office of the Library of Congress:
To register intellectual and industrial property, an application is filed through the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) under the U.S. Department of Commerce. This agency examines the uniqueness and other characteristics of the patentability of the object, and issues a patent or other document confirming the emergence of rights. In addition, the USPTO is authorized to handle certain categories of cases involving contestation or infringement.
Non-U.S. residents can also register intellectual property rights. For this purpose, an application can be filed through the national patent office of the place of residence or registration of the right holder, through U.S. patent attorneys, through electronic resources of government offices.
All options and remedies for intellectual property protection available under international acts and conventions are available in the United States:
In addition, the protection of intellectual property in the U.S. is carried out by a special structure of the executive branch - it is designed to resolve disputes related to the importation of counterfeit goods into the country. Judicial protection takes place through the system of federal and administrative courts, as well as through the tribunals of the Patent and Trademark Office.
Legitimate use of other people's rights is carried out under the terms of a license, or under contracts for the alienation of rights. These must be registered with the Patent Office and apply to the territory specified in the agreement.
