There is another type of intellectual property law not listed here: copyrights. Those apply to artistic works like song lyrics, novels, plays, and even some types of software code. The types of intellectual property described above are mostly handled by the USPTO. Copyrights, on the other hand, are handled by the Copyright Office of the Library of Congress. It’s relatively easy to file one yourself. In most cases, your need for a lawyer will stem from someone infringing on it, so it’s not an area we typically handle.
However, if it goes through the USPTO, it is our area of expertise. We are ready and waiting to provide the legal assistance you need!
