Intellectual Property (IP)
Kohn, Swift & Graf has successfully represented clients in intellectual property (IP) cases. Businesses, writers, composers, and inventors depend upon trade secrets, patents, and copyrights to protect their creations from reproduction and theft.
IP remedies can include both monetary damages for past and future losses and injunctive relief to prevent continuing loss. Our firm has handled intellectual property (IP) cases in the following areas:
• Theft of Trade Secrets
• Copyright Infringement
• False Advertising
Many businesses obtain tremendous value from their trade secrets—information that is not generally known to others, that the business takes reasonable steps to protect, and that confers economic benefit. Most states have adopted variations of the Uniform Trade Secrets Act. In 2016, the U.S. Congress for the first time enacted a federal trade secret law (the Defend Trade Secrets Act), which provides a civil remedy in federal court for trade secret misappropriation.
