Intellectual Property Services
Every working professional uses intellectual property and copyrighted information in their business, no matter what industry they are in. The more proprietary information you use, produce, or distribute, the bigger your copyright responsibilities become. Let us help you resolve your copyright related issues - whether you are an artist, musician, small business, nonprofit, or other entity.
Once you establish your brand, you need to protect it against infringement and inappropriate uses by other competitors or infringers. Let us file your trademarks for you. Whether it's for a company name, brand name, or creative logo, we will help you setup your official U.S. Trademark and make sure your original brand name and/or logo is legally protected.
As of 2013, the United States Copyright Law has effectively instated a new statute (US 17 Sec 203) called the "Termination of Transfers." This allows copyright owners who have published (publicly released) their creative works after January 1, 1978, to regain ownership over their copyrights after 35-to-40 years of publication. Whether you are a musician, writer, author, composer, or filmmaker, you may be able to get back your work once and for all. Let us help you research your termination eligibility and help you get back your priceless work.
LEGAL ENTITY FORMATION
Every business must have a corresponding legal entity under which it operates. Whether you want to be a sole proprietorship (DBA), a limited liability company (LLC), or a corporation (Inc.), you must file the appropriate paperwork and registrations to make sure that your business is set up correctly and is well protected. Let us help you identity and register the right business entity for your brand or new company.
Every modern day business, whether corporate, creative, or digital, is involved in some form of licensing deal. Whether you are licensing photos, graphics, music, a screenplay, manuscript, or brand name, you need seasoned expertise to make sure that your licenses are ethical, lucrative, and stand in your favor. Let us help you with your latest licensing project.
CONTRACTS & NEGOTIATIONS
Business-to-business relationships are based on well-drafted and mutually agreeable contracts. This can often involve a prolonged process of negotiation that takes time and money. Let us review your contracts and help advise you on how to negotiate the best terms in your favor, whether it's for your small business, your brand, or your creative works.
