- Unauthorized appropriation of software source code by software industry giants

It is essential that your California patent attorney has knowledge of the high-tech industry so he can quickly understand the nature of the infringement on your patent and accurately portray that infringement to a judge, jury, or mediator.

Software is not just protected by the patents covering original source code and processes. Trademark registration and protection also applies to specifics of the GUI, such as the color scheme, images, and navigation system. A Los Angeles trademark lawyer who knows and understands software can help you protect the look and feel of your software that makes it unique.
