Intellectual Property

Prior to establishing my own law firm, I was an attorney with a prominent New York City Intellectual Property Law firm. I have extensive experience in patents, trademarks and copyrights.
I understand your intellectual property (patents, trademarks, copyrights) rights are important to you. I also understand that you are concerned about the costs of protecting these rights. My fees are typically much less than other intellectual property attorneys, yet, you get the benefit of my years of experience in this field.

In the Badanes Law Office, the client’s needs come first and I listen to your concerns and address them head-on. You want an attorney that is attentive, responsive, diligent, intelligent, and talks to you in plain English. I pride myself in exceeding these goals.

Trademarks, copyrights, and patents are intellectual property rights that are often misunderstood. I help you understand and protect your intellectual property rights.

What is a Trademark?

It is usually thought of as a name or word or words. However, a trademark can also be a phrase, a logo, a symbol, an image, or a combination of all of the above. Trademarks can be used for both products and services.

What does a Trademark do?

It identifies the source of a product or a service. It allows consumers to identify and distinguish the source of goods or services. If you have a product or service that you want to sell under a unique name. You want the public to think of your product or service when using that unique name.

How the Badanes Law Office Helps You:

If you have a name that you want to use as a trademark, I will conduct a trademark search and order a trademark search report and review the report to see if your name is available as a trademark. I will submit your trademark application to the Patent and Trademark Office (the “PTO”). I will communicate and negotiate with the PTO to help get your trademark accepted by the PTO.

If your trademark has been infringed (used by another company), I will protect your trademark rights through negotiation and if necessary trademark litigation.
If you need help in obtaining a trademark or in trademark litigation, contact Long Island intellectual property attorney David P. Badanes today at the Badanes Law Office.

What is a Patent?

Generally, patents are for new inventions or improvements on existing inventions. A patent is granted to anyone who invents or discovers any new and useful process, machine, article of manufacture, or composition of matter.

A patent is valid for 20 years from the date of filing the patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO).

How the Badanes Law Office Helps You:

Please note that the Badanes Law Office uses independent attorneys and patent agents to file your patent application as I do not directly file patent applications. I select the right attorney/patent agent that fits your particular invention. If you have an idea or an invention that you want to patent, the independent attorney/patent agent will conduct a patent search to determine if it is eligible for patent protection. The independent attorney/patent agent will file your patent application with the PTO and communicate and negotiate with the PTO to help get your patent accepted. Please note that it is impossible to guarantee if the PTO will grant your patent.
If your patent has been infringed (used by another company or individual), I will protect your patent rights through negotiation and if necessary patent litigation.

What is a Copyright?

Is usually thought of as a book, poem, movies, or music. Yet there are many other items that you can copyright. For example, paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs, computer software, and industrial designs.

You can obtain a copyright for any original artistic, literary, dramatic, musical, choreographic, pictorials, graphic, sculptural, motion pictures, sound recordings, architectural works, and compilations and derivative works based on any of the above items.
