California Patent Attorneys

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has been issuing software patents for about 40 years now, but this does not mean that software and technology patents have become routine or easily enforceable. As one of the most experienced California patent attorneys, Gary Fergus knows how to protect the intellectual property rights of software inventors, developers, and designers through litigation and mediation.

How can Fergus, A Law Office help enforce my rights?

If you developed a piece of software or a unique software application, you are entitled to exclusive ownership and use of that software for a certain number of years after the United States Patent and Trademark Office grants your patent.  When other corporations or enterprises use your original software design or source code without permission and without paying you a licensing fee, they violate your rights as the patent holder.

In high-tech industries, patent holders coping with intellectual property enforcement issues need to work with patent attorneys in California who already know the terrain. If you think someone is infringing on your patent rights, you do not want to waste time giving your IP lawyer a primer course in your technology field. You need to work with a knowledgeable Los Angeles trademark lawyer who already knows your field and has experience protecting and defending the IP rights of developers and inventors like yourself. An experienced California trademark attorney can accelerate the speed at which your case progresses, shortening the time it takes to regain full control of or receive full compensation for your intellectual property. 

Copyright and trademark infringement

Patents apply to inventions, processes and improvements to existing technologies. Some high-tech patent attorneys such as San Jose trademark attorneys represent software developers in other types of intellectual property disputes, including copyrights and trademarks.

Fergus, A Law Firm has decades of experience helping ensure that artists and creators of all sorts get the full financial and reputational benefit of their creations. A skilled San Francisco intellectual property lawyer can resolve any question you may have as to whether someone has actually infringed upon your trademark, and what remedies you can use to protect your rights and reputation.

Work with a dedicated intellectual property lawyer to manage any IP disputes

Intellectual property disputes—whether they stem from patent, trademark or copyright infringement—can be complex and costly.  You need to work with an experienced attorney who keeps things simple and cost-effective for you.  If you face any IP dispute in California, contact Fergus, A Law Office to discuss your case.
