Intellectual Property

Intellectual property is uniquely a product of an individual's mind.  Intellectual property constitutes the mental efforts required for the production of material value.  A patent is the legal implementation of the base of all property rights; namely, an individual's right to the product of his own mind.

An invention, or the mental efforts of an idea, must be embodied in a physical model or enabling description before it can be patented.  The enabling description of an invention is a transformation of the mental efforts of an idea into a tangible, material form.  This transformation of thought processes into a material form is the subject of a patent.

Patents pertain only to the practical application of knowledge, and are utilized in the creation of a specific object which did not exist in nature - an object which may never have existed without its particular originator - the inventor.  As a patent is the legal implementation of the base of all property rights - an inventor's right to the product of his own mind - our federal government certifies the origination of the idea and protects the idea, the originator, and the originator's exclusive right of use.  The practice of patent law involves many aspects of protecting an inventor's right to use the patented material.  Boisbrun Hofman, PLLC understands the practice of intellectual property law, and is involved in many of the contemporary practices necessary to protect their material value.  Boisbrun Hofman, PLLC intellectual property management practices include:
