INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS LAW FIRM HELPING YOUR COMPANY FIND ITS WAY.
Trademarks and Copyrights
Rainey Law P.C. can assist clients in obtaining trademarks and copyrights, perform searches, and render registrability opinions. We file and maintain applications to register trademarks, current trademark registrations, and copyrights each year in the U.S. and abroad.
The firm helps clients establish, enforce and challenge trademark rights, both in the United States and abroad. The firm also counsels clients in trade dress and unfair competition matters under Section 43(a) of the Lanham Act as well as matters involving both IP and antitrust laws such as tying arrangements and covenants not to compete, and disputes regarding publishing rights and piracy. We litigate trademark claims in federal courts throughout the country, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, and the International Trade Commission. We counsel clients on domain name strategies, domain name acquisition and the protection of IP rights on the Internet, including through international proceedings of ICANN and WIPO.
The firm focuses on protecting the goodwill and brand value that our clients have worked to develop through their trademarks and trade dress, and handle an array of disputes, including those concerning consumer product trademarks, business names, trademark dilution, trademark counterfeiting, false advertising, and clothing and accessory designs and other forms of trade dress. The firm represents copyright owners in actions against people and businesses that sell infringing items. Similarly, the firm represents composers, authors, software developers, and publishers in protecting their copyrighted works against unauthorized copying, distribution, and performance
Trade secrets can be among the most valuable intellectual property in a company, reflecting cutting edge innovations and competitive advantage. I work tirelessly and creatively to protect, maintain and enforce my clients’ trade secret rights and to vigorously defend them against claims for trade secret misappropriation across a range of industries and technologies, including among others: Internet and e-commerce, data storage, software, video games, aerospace, satellites, genetics, medical devices, biopharmaceuticals, tamper resistant seals, cosmetics, energy, oil and gas, chemical, e-cigarettes, power amplifiers, financial services, paper, aluminum casting, construction, training, and the food industry. I advise and counsel clients on best practices for trade secret protection and enforcement, and conduct and direct pre-litigation trade secret investigations.
