Oak Brook Intellectual Property Law

Understanding intellectual property law can be confusing. There is a lot to how the laws are defined and how it can protect the intellectual property of an individual or company.

As a simple definition, this law is a set of exclusive rights to exclude others from making, copying, or using intangible creations of the human mind.

In the US, The Constitution provides Congress with two powers that apply to intellectual property, or IP, rights.

  1. First IP clause empowers Congress to grant authors and inventors the exclusive right to their respective writings and discoveries
  2. The second clause allows Congress to regulate interstate and foreign commerce

The US Patent and Trademark Office, or PTO, reports in a recent study that IP-intensive industries, like computer, technology, entertainment, and others, account for over 40 million American Jobs. Cementing the need for intellectual property law and protecting intellectual assets.
