It is not uncommon for many of a business’s most valuable assets to be its intellectual property – the ideas, inventions, creations, and identifying symbols the business creates to market its brand or sell its products. Imagine the financial harm that could result if Coca-Cola’s signature formula for its cola soft drink was illegally divulged and copied by its competitors, or if the famous Apple logo was used by another technology company as a way of increasing that company’s sales. Unfortunately for many business owners, protecting their company’s intellectual property is not a priority. Many may not think to consult with a California intellectual property attorney until after they discover their ideas and inventions have been copied and used by a competitor. By then, it may be too late to prevent the financial harm that often results when a competitor obtains your business’s secrets. Sehgal Law PC is here to help you.
