Can you protect your IP on the internet?

California business owners like you have a vested interest in protecting your intellectual property, and for good reason. However, it can be difficult to do that when the internet seems like it runs on its own set of laws and logic. Millstone, Peterson & Watts, LLP, are here to help you guard your ideas from being stolen or abused online.

The internet can be an amazing tool for spreading information, getting your ideas out there, and making your name known. However, there are drawbacks to it as well. On the internet, some people feel like they can get away with stealing more easily because the laws seem like they're more complex. They may feel safe from law enforcement because they don't feel like their wrongdoings can be traced back to them. In other cases, a misunderstanding of copyright laws can lead to them thinking that they aren't doing anything wrong in the first place by using your intellectual property.

However, there are indeed laws that govern the internet, including what can or can't be posted without credit. There are also laws prohibiting people from stealing credit for themselves. If your intellectual property has been unfairly stolen and is being used by someone else on the internet either to gain business for themselves, or to cast yours in a bad light, there are actions you can take to protect it.

If you need more guidance when it comes to protecting your intellectual property from being misused online, take a look at our web page, linked here. Because the laws of the internet are ever-changing, having the extra professional help can be excellent for you.
