International IP Protection

Protection Around the World

The world has become a global marketplace. Products are developed in one country, manufactured in a second country, and sold in still other countries throughout the world. The law governing intellectual property is limited geographically; patents and trademarks are obtained on a national basis. Consequently, obtaining protection in the United States will not prevent others from making or selling products or using your good name in other countries. Our network of established relationships with foreign associates around the world positions us to provide advice regarding when and where to pursue IP protection around the world.
