A trademark is a word, phrase, symbol or design, or any combination that distinguishes one product or service from another. A servicemark is a form of trademark used to distinguish a service.
Copyright is a form of intellectual property protection provided by the US government to authors of original works. Literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and certain other intellectual works may be afforded copyright protection.
Years in Business
Ken and Barbara have been in the IP law practice and they know what they are doing. My trusted friend referred me to the firm. I travelled to meet with Ken and I was grateful I did. We’ve built a relationship together developping a number of patents.
If you have more questions than answers with protecting your property I recommend Pedersen & Company. Barbara, Ken, and their staff are a pleasure to work with and I feel confident my bases are covered with their firm.
I worked remotely with Pedersen and the process went quite smoothly. While I may be a one trick p0ny on my patent I would recommend the firm to any size orginization. The explained and helped us through the process. I was a very positive experience. I’m glad they’re in Boise.
Every year thousands of Independent Inventors, like yourself, are targeted by unscrupulous invention promotion, marketing and licensing firms. These firms take advantage of an inventor’s enthusiasm for their product. They not only solicit inventors with exaggerated promises to obtain valuable patents but they make false claims about the potential market success of those inventions. These firms provide you with basic market research at a large fee and ultimately obtaining an overly narrow or useless patent that is worthless in the marketplace. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Please read this brochure published by the USPTO!
