In order to make money from your original idea for a product or process, you need to protect that idea by obtaining a patent. At Ahmadshahi & Associates, we will help you secure a patent to protect your original invention, help you license your product, and litigate against those who infringe against your product. To prosecute a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), you need the help of an experienced patent attorney who fully understands your idea and can file a complete application. You took the necessary time and care to present your invention as unique and non-obvious during the patent application process, and you secured your legal right to develop, market, sell, and profit from your invention through a patent.

A copyright is intended to do just what its name suggests: give the author or artist the right to restrict the copy of the original work. If you have created an original work through writing, music, drawings, pictures, or some other means, you have a copyright on that material. Establishing a copyright is automatic. However, registering your copyright with the Copyright Office has some advantages. Registration adds proof of copyright ownership and aids you in fighting copyright infringement. If someone else infringes on your copyright, you need to talk to a copyright lawyer at the Ahmadshahi & Associates law firm.
