INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT

Intellectual Property refers to creations of the mind used in commerce such as inventions, literary and artistic works, designs, symbols, names and images. Intellectual property theft occurs when your work is misappropriated without your permission. This includes Copyrights, Trademarks, Patents and more. At Top Gun Investigations, we have investigated intellectual property infringement throughout the Tampa area.

You have invested much creativity, time, effort and resources into your creations to grow your brand. If your work is easily recognized as yours, your competitors may likely want to infringe on your success by creating something very similar. If it is so similar that it confuses the public into thinking it is yours, it can damage your reputation in the marketplace and decrease your income stream. Don’t allow competitors to use your hard work to their advantage. In Tampa, Top Gun Investigations will perform a free case analysis and if a theft of your intellectual property has occurred, we will identify the source and gather the necessary evidence you need to stop it.

COPYRIGHTS

If you have properly registered your copyright, you have exclusive rights over your works such as writings, pictures, music, videos, films and other creative works. The idea behind the copyrighted work isn’t protected, but the manner in which the idea is expressed is. For example, there have been many movies about the mafia, but there is only one Godfather Vito Corleone. A registered Copyright protects your creative work against reproduction, distribution, public display or performance for your life plus 70 years

TRADEMARKS

Trademark can include any word, logo, symbol, number, colors, sound or shape of packaging that identifies and distinguishes your goods or services from others. It is illegal for anyone to use your registered Trademark to advertise or sell a product or service. If your Trademark is registered and carries a notice of registration symbol (such as ®) you may have a right to significant damages against a person or company that infringes on your Trademark.

PATENTS

A Patent protects others from making, using, selling or advertising to sell your invention within the United States. The duration of your Patent lasts for a specific period of time, typically 20 years. Unlike a Trademark or Copyright, a Patent is issued by the U.S. Patent Office.

Top Gun Investigators perform covert field activity to identify intellectual property theft at the production, distribution, and retail levels. Among other investigative procedures, we place undercover operatives, undertake complex pretext approaches and conduct test purchases to identify violators as well as their sources and methods of operation.
