There are separate and distinct types of intellectual property (IP). IP encompasses creative works or inventions in which the creator or owner has exclusive rights. These rights are enforceable by the owner under various intellectual property laws, including copyrights, patents, trademarks and trade secrets.

IP is inherent in all businesses – images, publications, inventions, products, software, confidential and proprietary information, etc. Whether you are an individual artist or a corporate conglomerate, you have intellectual property that needs to be protected. BL Speer & Associates specialize in the area of intellectual property law, serving artists, entertainers, innovators, and companies. As analytical creative types ourselves, we are avid champions of educating and enabling our clients to protect and promote their valuable brainchild from concept to harvest.

A trade secret consists of proprietary business information that has commercial value, provides an actual or potential economic advantage over others and that is maintained in confidence. Trade secrets in the US are protected through contractual rights which are governed by federal and state statutory and case law.
