Copyrights, Trademarks, & Patents

An important part of creating products and services, establishing your brand, and protecting these unique assets is obtaining trademarks, copyrights, and patents when applicable. This process requires the assistance of an intellectual property lawyer to ensure that you are not infringing on existing intellectual property (IP) and to make sure your IP is fully protected. The State Bar of New Mexico offers consultations at discounted rates and will be able to double check your business licenses. You can also learn the basics of each of these forms of intellectual property at the United States Copyright Office and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) websites.
