Mazzola Lindstrom understands that whether an individual or a large corporation, protection of your intellectual property rights is critical to ensuring your growth and profitability. Safeguarding your innovative ideas, brilliant inventions and valuable branding is paramount.
Mazzola Lindstrom appreciates the vulnerabilities of the digital age – how ideas are so widely, freely, and instantly spread across the internet and globe. Our attorneys regularly navigate the unprecedented speed of change and information flow in our modern world and assist our clients in developing effective strategies to protect their most valuable assets – their intellectual property. We keep abreast of developments in the law and in the many global markets in which our clients are active. Our diverse experience with our clients’ varied IP needs keeps us on the forefront of this exciting, constantly evolving practice. We are proficient at handling transactional and litigation matters involving unfair competition, and infringement of trade secrets, copyrights, and trademarks. We are skilled at drafting and negotiating intellectual property agreements to effectively protect our clients’ unique, original works, including copy, art, and digital media.
Mazzola Lindstrom’s attorneys understand the importance of an identifiable name and mark and are adept at minimizing damage and loss of value caused by deception and consumer confusion. We also swiftly and efficiently defend matters when our clients are wrongly accused – often by a bigger, more established, competitor with significant resources.
Our team litigates copyright infringement claims, and both prosecutes and defends claims when IP rights are violated. We deal with problematic artwork, copies, forgeries, distributions, performances, counterfeiting, derivative works, and other theft of IP. We are skilled at prosecuting and defending trademark infringement claims involving interference of the exclusive rights or use of confusing marks for comparable products.
An effective licensing agreement is essential to control and profit from your copyrights and trademarks. We have experience successfully drafting licensing agreements and advise our clients to get in front of problems and avoid future litigation with a strongly worded contract. Over the years, Mazzola Lindstrom’s practice has grown to span various areas of international commerce ranging from the art world to science, digital media, publishing, manufacturing, consumer goods, film and post-production, software, and websites.
