Intellectual property comprises patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and domain names.
I view it as my job to assist or guide people who want to protect their intellectual property through the complexities of the patent and/or trademark application process.
I always attempt to provide pertinent and relevant information. However, intellectual property law is complex and cannot be fully explained in a brief telephone conversation or e-mail.
