Intellectual Property

Intellectual property is divided into two categories: Industrial property, which includes inventions (patents), trademarks, industrial designs, and geographic indications of source; and Copyright, which includes literary and artistic works such as novels, poems and plays, films, musical works, drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, and architectural designs. Intellectual property plays an important role in an increasingly broad scope, ranging from the internet and health care to nearly all aspects of science and technology, literature and the arts. Within the SEE Legal Group, our firms advise on all aspects of IP protection.
