To avoid costly and disruptive litigation, a careful search of existing intellectual property rights owned by others can help determine the potential of infringing on someone else’s intellectual property rights. We conduct searches regarding patents, copyrights, and trademarks.
Keleti+Moradian LLP can undertake efforts to be sure that you spend your funds wisely by searching for existing right's holders, helping to assess whether a competitor is filing for registration and can monitor for specific filings. K+MLLP can also assist in creating a portfolio of current and likely competitors, related right's holders and choice possibilities for licensing agreements.
