Intellectual Property

Intellectual property is an intangible property which refers to creation of mind for which exclusive rights are recognized. Common types of intellectual property include trademark, patent, industrial design and copyright.

A trademark is a symbol, word, or words legally registered or established by use as representing a company or product. A patent is a set of exclusive rights granted by a sovereign state to an inventor or their assignee for a limited period of time, in exchange for the public disclosure of the invention. Industrial Design is the use of both applied art and applied science to improve the aesthetics, functionality or usability of a product. Copyright is an exclusive and assignable legal right, given to the originator, for a fixed number of years, to print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic, or musical material.

To enable commerce among states, the drafters of the Constitution felt that intellectual property law should be within the province of the federal government, not the state governments. The statutory provisions in US for trademark are laid down in U. S. Trademark Law, 15 U.S.C. for patent and design in U.S. Patents Act (Designs) 35 U.S.C and for copyright in U.S. Copyright Act of 1976, 17. U.S.C.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (PTO or USPTO) is an agency in the U.S. Department of Commerce that issues patents to inventors, protection for industrial design and trademark registration for product and intellectual property identification. The United States Copyright Office, is the official U.S. government body that maintains records of copyright registration in the United States.

MLG facilitates the interaction between applicants and a patent office with regard to a patent, or an application for a patent. MLG's Patent Prosecution includes pre-grant prosecution, which involves negotiation with a patent office for the grant of a patent, and post-grant prosecution, which involves issues such as post-grant amendment and opposition.

In addition to MLG's Patent Prosecution, we handle all aspects of Patent Litigation, which is separate and apart from Patent Prosecution and involves a legal action relating to the infringement of patents.
