What are intellectual property rights? What will be the role of intellectual property lawyers in Chandigarh in protecting your IP rights?
Intellectual rights, as the name suggests, are related to the intelligence of human beings. Intellectual Property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, designs, logos, images, crafts used in commerce, etc. Patents, copyrights, and trademarks are some of the major channels through which intellectual property is protected. Recognition and/or financial benefit are mostly the main agendas for protecting one’s effort.

A patent is a legal document that is granted by the government to the inventor for a limited period for the invention that he/she has created. Such protection confers exclusive monopoly rights to the patent holder to exploit by making, selling and using the invention and deriving the maximum benefit out of it.
Any person who is a true and first inventor or his assignee or his legal representative can apply for patents. Starting with the filling of the application, the Patent search is the first step that needs to be covered when looking for the grant of a patent. There are some top patent research companies in Chandigarh who are dealing in such matters. Once a thorough search has been complied with, then comes the preparing the patent specification, which again requires highly skilled techno-legal language.
A team of experienced lawyers for Patent in Chandigarh are well versed with the importance of patent specifications and thereafter filling of the Patent well in time. The priority date is the essence of Patent filing because if the Patent claim is publicly available before the priority date is taken in, then the question of whether to grant patent protection or not becomes imperative. Delay of any kind in securing the priority date can risk the information into the public domain and adversely affect the possibility of the patent grant.
Trademark is any symbol, word, name, logo, design or any combination of these that provides exclusive rights to the owner with respect to that mark. Having a good Trademark helps in identifying the product or the service of one entity from that of another and helps the consumer identify the source of the product or the service. Trademark is a valuable asset for businesses (start-ups/established) as it represents the brand value and hence it is very important to have a comprehensive trademark search.
At B&B Associates, we understand the importance of having strong trademark protection for both trademark owners and the consumers and therefore, the team of professional trademark registration lawyers in Chandigarh is always ready to uphold the laws that would ensure the proper protection of trademarks.
Sometimes, an unregistered mark that has acquired a lot of goodwill and brand value by consumer recognition over time comes into the radar of being questioned if any third party comes up with a similar registered mark. Then passing off action comes into play protecting the first owners of the mark. For an unregistered Trademark, the ™ symbol can be used and for the registered Trademark, a ® symbol is used.
Copyright is a bundle of rights, subsisting in any original by expression (published or unpublished) works of Literary, Musical, Dramatic, Artistic, cinematograph films and sound recording. No copyright can be acquired in an idea, therefore, it is important to have an original expression of that idea in some form. Our experienced copyright lawyers in Chandigarh can assist you in the process. The word ‘original’ in a simple sense means work that has not been copied from any other source.
The exclusive right includes right of adaptation, right of reproduction, right of publication, right to make translations, communication to the public, etc. and such rights are only available to the author or creator of the work who is also the first owner of the copyright. Copyright is the only intellectual property right that is acquired as soon as work is created. However, the best lawyers for copyright in Chandigarh always advise, to apply for registration of copyright. Such action is required so that there is prima facie evidence in the court of law.
In a general sense, the design is an on the face look or the outlook of an article. According to the definition so laid under Section 2 (d) of the Designs Act, 2000, “A design only menus the features of shape, configuration, pattern, ornament or composition of lines or colors applied to any article whether in two dimensional or three dimensional or both forms, by any industrial process or means, whether manual, mechanical or chemical, separate or combined, which in the finished article appeal to and are judged solely by the eye.
