Helping Chicago Creators Secure Their Intellectual Property

In the digital world, we live in, we are all creators. We take pictures, make sound and video recordings, and write more than any previous generation. Creating is so ingrained in our culture, many Chicago area residents and businesses do not appreciate how valuable the content they are generating actually is. 

At Vaziri Law LLC, we help Chicagoans identify and protect their intellectual property (IP). We work with businesses and creators who want to take an inventory of their creative assets, then determine what steps to take to protect them. 

What protections are available vary based on the type of work, and the creator’s intentions, but Vaziri Law can assist Chicagoans with copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets.

Copyrights 

Copyrights protect works of art such as:

  • Music
  • Sound Recordings
  • Literature
  • Plays
  • Movies
  • Choreography
  • Photographs
  • Architecture
  • Sculptures
  • Websites
  • Graphic Designs
  • Computer Software

Securing a copyright can help creators prevent others from using or profiting from their work. At Vaziri Law LLC, we assist clients with copyright registration and enforcement including litigation of copyright infringement cases.

Trademarks 

It is possible to trademark names, symbols, logos, packaging, slogans, sounds, and other assets that set a business apart from its competitors. At Vaziri Law LLC, we help Chicago businesses identify IP assets they should consider trademarking and then help them with the registration process. 

Once a mark is obtained, we can advise trademark holders on the proper use of their trademark and how to spot infringement so their trademarks retain their value. When infringement occurs, we aggressively go after the perpetrators. 

Trade Secrets 

To maintain their competitive edge, companies in the Chicago area often rely on nondisclosure and confidentiality agreements to protect their confidential business information, processes, client lists, and other trade secrets. 

Vaziri Law LLC helps businesses draft agreements that can impose legal restrictions on employees, vendors, and strategic partners who might otherwise pose a competitive threat due to the special knowledge or skills learned by working with our clients.
