Bonus Interview with Seth Nehrbass About Intellectual Property

During our informative episode about intellectual property law, we were joined by special guest attorney Seth Nehrbass. We discussed the difference between patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and the various protections they offer.

  • Patents protect inventions. Patents are generally good for 20 years.
  • Trademarks may protect items that distinguish goods and services, including slogans, sounds, or phrases
  • Copyrights protect books, songs, paintings and other artistic works
  • Trade secrets are anything that give value to a company or to an individual because it is not generally known and it is kept secret

If you have valuable intellectual property and want to protect your rights and interests, an experienced intellectual property law can provide invaluable guidance and representation.

During our question and answer section with viewers, Mr. Nehrbass addressed many key subjects, including:

  • What can people do on their own?
  • When should you retain an attorney?
  • The importance of retaining counsel for patent registration
  • What does it cost to retain an IP lawyer?
