Here are a couple truisms relevant to the business community in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
First, that community is truly vibrant and always buzzing with new creations, development, opportunities and dynamic entrepreneurialism that ushers in exciting new prospects and products.
Second, the intellectual property that serves as the very cornerstone of upward lift in the region’s financial, economic, construction and other markets needs to be protected by its creators.
That second point is acutely obvious to the authors and architects of invention who spend considerable time and effort creating new processes, designs, models, original art and compositions, instantly recognizable words, symbols and phrases and other property.
And, indeed, such creations are property. The business and legal communities understand them as the tangible and intangible byproducts of the mind, which explains the term intellectual property often applied to them.
Intellectual property is often the most valuable property that can be imagined. Some inventions power computers or guide spaceships to the stars. Others enable daring new building forms. Some artists write books of enduring value or create art and music of seminal importance.
That takes both sweat and genius, and the rewards from such labor simply must be protected by those who create important things.
We duly note that in an article on our website discussing the protection of intellectual property, pointing out that creators “do what they must” to protect their inventions.
As we note in that article, some people might construe that as bullying, but such is clearly not the case when relevant laws are merely sought to be applied and enforced in order to protect what was created. In fact, failure to take that step arguably results in a type of inverted bullying, that is, pirating another’s works and profiting from that act without paying due compensation.
Protecting business property is an imperative and a long-recognized legal right. A proven intellectual property attorney can help inventors and other creators safeguard what is theirs.
