Why a Contract?
In relevance to IP law, contracts are put in place to protect your intellectual property. These contracts can come in the form of registering for patents, copyright , trademarks and or trade secrets. Once you own the rights to any of the above through proper registration and filings, contracts are usually generated between the owner of these rights and their employee’s or in some cases the owner and a competitor. The right IP attorney can help you ensure your intellectual property is properly protected.
Handling Contract Breach
When a party to a contract does not hold up their end of that contract, serious harm – financial and/or otherwise – can come to the other party to that contract when it comes to intellectual property. There are two main ways in which a contract can be breached. The most common way is through non-performance. The other main way a contract can be breached is through one party interfering with the performance of the other party.
