Aggressive Negotiator & Litigator in Your Corner
Intellectual property (IP) is the term used to describe the non-physical products that are the creation and invention of the human mind. These works can include designs, symbols, manuscripts, and more. They are intangible products to which their creators have rights; they can be protected in various ways from infringement or outside use by the companies that “own” them. These protections are commonly through such legal means as patents or laws pertaining to copyrights and trademarks. These laws were created based on the concept that these products should have the same protections as physical products, such as property, machinery, commercial goods, and more.
When alleged infringement or some outside use of intellectual property occurs, it can result in disputes between the opposing parties. If you have become involved in allegations of this nature in or around Houston or Fort Worth, you can turn to Keith Morris Attorney at Law for legal representation. Our firm has been handling all manner of business and commercial litigation for clients for the past two decades.

Intellectual Property Disputes in Texas
Common types of intellectual property can include:
- Artistic or literary works
- Methods, processes, systems, or formulas
- Inventions, such as machines
- Other trade secrets, such as customer or client lists
- Domain names
- And more
Intellectual property has become recognized as an extremely valuable asset for its creator or the company that owns it. For example, the name Coca-Cola is known all over the world and has generated untold millions for the Coca-Cola Corporation. Its name, the shape of its bottle, and the graphic representation of its name are all protected trademarks of the Corporation that invented them. Thus infringement or illegal use of such trademarks is considered a very serious legal matter.
Disputes over the use of intellectual property can involve alleged violations of patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, trade dress (packaging or physical appearance of the product), or other unfair infringements of an intangible property. Legal actions can be brought against those engaging in illegal infringement or disclosure of such products whether through breach of contract (such as through a noncompete agreement) or other means. These legal actions involve claims and lawsuits against the infringing party. When successful, they can result in cease and desist orders, monetary damages, or other legal remedies.
