Trademark law also concerns the protection of so-called work titles for publications, films, recordings, stage productions, trade show names, computer software, etc. The rights to work title protection arise at the time of the first use thereof. However, publishing a title protection notice pushes this point in time forward by up to 6 months.
We provide clients with advice on selecting protectable titles and publish the title protection notifications on their behalf. We represent our clients in the event of infringements of their title protection rights and will advise as to whether trademark protection is a sensible choice to ensure a broader level of protection is granted. We conduct research into existing titles so as to avoid potential conflicts with third parties.
