Patent disputes in advanced technology

Inventors, designers, developers, and innovators who patent their products and processes can enforce their rights in federal court.  Some key intellectual property issues in the high-tech world include:

  • Unauthorized use of patented software innovations on mobile devices such as Blackberry and iPhone
  • Unauthorized appropriation of software source code by software industry giants
  • Infringement on biotechnology and nanotechnology patents in the name of research

In patent infringement disputes, you need to work with an expert San Francisco intellectual property lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the law protecting patent holders. 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.

Other software IP issues

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. Courts can require trademark infringers to pay damages, to hand over their profits, and to cover your attorney fees and court costs if the infringement is malicious.
