This publication highlights some of the recent developments and trends in intellectual property law. It is clear that courts today are protecting the intellectual property rights of inventors much more than ever before. Courts are recognizing the inherent value of intellectual property and stopping copiers. Even those that have not filed or received formal intellectual property protection under U.S. Federal law can still be afforded intellectual property rights through such things as the trade dress of their products, namely, the look and feel of the goods. This would include color, style, size, shape, etc. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy of this publication.
