Posted on Monday, October 12th, 2009 at 11:29 pm
Businesses face important decisions regarding the protection of their intellectual property. The most common types of intellectual property protection are trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, and patents.
However, even within patents, there are multiple types. These include design patents, plant patents, utility patents, and business method patents. Understanding their differences is necessary for any business that wants to register for a patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
