When can there be copyright protection for street art?

At our law firm, we help people protect intellectual property rights in their creative works using copyright law. Commonly copyright-protected types of works include music, art, software and books and others. A developing area of copyright law is the extent to which graffiti — now dubbed aerosol art, according to The New York Times — can obtain copyright protection. 

Someone's got your domain name - now what?

The right domain name can make a huge difference, but when it's already registered, what are the options? You could search for an extension such as .biz or .net, but if your name is that good, chances are someone has already registered all the obvious extensions.

Is former dog-food bag maker barking up right tree?

We have discussed trade secrets in some of our recent posts. A federal lawsuit alleging misappropriation of trade secrets involving the manufacturing processes of Costco dog food bags has been filed in the U.S. District Court in the Western District of Missouri, reports the News Tribune in Jefferson City. 

An introduction to trade secrets

A trade secret is any information that provides the trade secret holder with economic value or a competitive advantage precisely because it is not readily known or ascertainable by the general public. Unlike patents, trademarks, and copyrights, trade secrets are not registered. Rather, it is the job of the trade-secret owner to take reasonable steps to maintain the “secret” status of the information, so that employees, contractors, members of the public or other business interests do not steal it for their own potential financial gain.
