How do fair use laws affect copyright protection?

Copyright laws enforced in California and throughout the United States protect a wide variety of material considered to be original works, such as literary work, art, music, videos, software and motion pictures. The purpose of copyright protection is to prevent a person's original work from being stolen and used by another for gain, usually financial in nature. The law does, however, provide a provision for using what would normally be copyrighted work called fair use laws.

Protection of trademarks and company information

As many California business owners may know, a company is often identified by its trademark. In addition, a business has proprietary information that it may not wish to share with others if it is associated with the company's success, like a secret formula. Protecting trademarks or trade secrets is an important aspect that may be overlooked.
