We have experience with complex copyright prosecution, including appellate practice within the US Copyright Office. From artistic works to sophisticated compilations, the Burrus Intellectual Property Law Group will not only protect your creative, expressive works, but is well suited to provide infringement analysis as well.
The Burrus Intellectual Property Law Group understands that businesses are not built on technology alone. Successful businesses include not only "WOW" products and services, but also skillful brand management. From concept to search to registration to enforcement, we are prepared to ensure that your brand stays just that: your brand.
Intellectual property comes in many different forms. Sometimes factors such as enforceability and detectability mean that conventional protections, including patents, copyrights and trademarks, are not the answer. After careful analysis, we will advise you when this is the case. We counsel small inventors and companies alike when keeping proprietary information as trade secrets is warranted.
The Burrus Intellectual Property Law Group has extensive experience in portfolio management and mapping. While there is never a substitute for carefully analyzing each asset of your portfolio on a case by case basis, we understand that in today's fast paced business environment, there is sometimes just not enough time. We have the tools and models to counsel clients in portfolio mapping, quantization and classification. Be it for licensing or simply inventory management, we can both save time and simplify your analysis.
In addition to defensive and bargaining factors, we realize that monetization of your portfolio may be central to your business's success. From identification of clusters to negotiating and drafting licenses, we can handle your licensing needs.
Aside from the areas mentioned above, if it involves intellectual property, we are prepared to help. Whether it be licensing, non-disclosure agreements, opinion drafting, infringement analysis, portfolio development, disclosure system counseling, or offensive or defensive assertion, or entertainment and publicity issues, the Burrus Intellectual Property Law Group will assist you with your legal needs.
