Find Lawyers in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island for Intellectual Property Law
Practice Area Overview
Intellectual property law, however, has expanded in many ways to extend into ancillary and related areas such as licensing; mergers and acquisitions; related regulatory issues; advertising and marketing issues; packaging and labels; as well as new media and copyright. Enforcement and creation of intellectual property rights is also integral to the life-cycle management strategy for the development of a new product as well as the development and protection of the market for that product.
Further, a given product may involve more than one IP issue. For instance, a new product may involve a new technology, which may give rise to a patent; it may be sold under a trademark and may involve other related issues.
While each of these areas has a similar structure in the sense of first requiring a creation of right, and then enforcement, each of the sub-areas has their own unique characteristics and requirements. Consequently, there are many types of intellectual property lawyers.
