Intellectual Property Law in Naperville

Understanding intellectual property law

Protecting intellectual property requires a certain level of understanding of what makes up intellectual property, the laws that govern definitions, and the rights granted by these laws. It is a complex subject with a lot of specific and technical details. Which makes it feel like a daunting concept to manage on your own.

Luckily, you don’t have to.

Cook Alex’s intellectual property law services can help you secure and maintain all your intellectual property secure. So, what can we help you protect?

Our team offers solutions that cover all main types of intellectual property, which include:


Patents protect technical inventions. Which includes mechanical processes, chemical compositions, or new machine designs.

This can mean complex machinery, pharmaceutical drugs, or a unique machine that is usable in some type of industry.

An example of this would be a new, hybrid type of engine.

This law protects the inventions and processes. Preventing others from copying, making, using, or selling the invention without consent.


Copyrights are an artistic, literary, or intellectually created work. Such as movies, photographs, novels, paintings, music, and software code. Which exist in a tangible medium, such as film, canvas, digital format, and paper.

The song “Under Pressure” by Queen and David Bowie is an example of a copyright.

Copyright law provides the creator with exclusive right to reproduce, redistribute, display, or perform their created work. Others also cannot copy or exploit the creation without permission.


Trademarks can comprise a word, design, phrase, or a combination. Which identify a set of goods or services, distinguishing them from the goods or services of others.

McDonalds® is one of the most recognizable trademarks worldwide.

Trademarks prevent unauthorized usage or registration by other parties or by using a trademark that is like related goods or services.
