In addition to the legal protection of intellectual property, we also offer, as one of our core competencies, competent advice on the application, registration, sale and licensing of copyrights and trademark rights. In this way, we ensure that your ideas are secured as assets and legally transferred or made available to others for use or exploitation.
WHAT IS TRADEMARK LAW AND COPYRIGHT LAW?
Trademark law is largely regulated by the German Trademark Act (MarkenG). The Trademark Act regulates, among other things, the protectability of the trademark, its creation after registration with the German Patent and Trademark Office (DPMA) or through use in the course of business, the scope of protection of the trademark as well as its limitations and ownership and transfer of the trademark. Relevant procedures are also regulated here.
The Copyright Act (UrhG) regulates the copyright law accordingly. In contrast to trademark protection, however, there is no register for copyright.
