Infringement of intellectual property law refers to unauthorized use of intellectual property rights of individuals or companies.
Article 1, paragraph 8, of the constitution of the United States grants Congress a clear mandate to give authors and inventors exclusive rights to all their creations. Section 8 also gives Congress the power to provide further support in interstate and foreign parliaments, with the power to regulate trademarks based on the Constitution’s commercial provisions.
The intellectual property law passed by Congress is supervised by two government agencies: the U.S. patent and Trademark Office and the U.S. Copyright Office. The patent and Trademark Office is responsible for the publication and monitoring of all federally registered patents and trademarks. Copyright must be registered in the United States. The copyright office is enforceable at the federal level.
To protect yourself from infringement, you should take all possible steps to let the world know that your rights exist. By disclosing your rights, you can stop people who may inadvertently violate your rights and can place yourself in a better position to sue for infringement as needed.
