DON’T LOSE THE Intellectual Property BATTLE BEFORE YOU START
IN AUSTIN, DALLAS, AND HOUSTON
Many computer program developers and technologists in Austin, Dallas, and Houston lose the Intellectual Property protection battle before it starts and it all begins with their source code. In my experience representing computer program developers in Austin, Dallas, and Houston over the many years, most clients fail to recognize the importance of protecting their computer code at inception. Whether they overlook this because of their technical focus or they think it is a legal matter to resolve later, they put it off. Frequently, the codes are stolen or misappropriated before the first beta test is completed. The result is tragic as the entire investment and technology are lost.
This can be easily overcome by consulting an IP attorney in Austin, Dallas, and Houston. We at the Moster Law Firm enjoy representing computer developers at all stages in the process and recommending the legal steps necessary to protect the technology whether they are seeking an IP Lawyer or Technology Lawyer in Austin, Dallas, Houston, or elsewhere in Texas.
In some instances, the legal recommendation is simply to obtain a copyright of the code which can now be done in a redacted fashion to prevent reverse engineering of the product. In other instances, we may recommend that a patent be obtained given the underlying nature of the claims. We often confront a situation where there is an urgency that the code may be stolen and thus will advise on immediate steps to protect and defend including the filing of a provisional patent.
