Desilu lawsuit highlights relevance of historic IP

Texas entrepreneurs may often find that their intellectual property can be the most valuable part of their enterprise. From the trade name and logo of a business with high levels of goodwill, to the information systems that power a tech business, IP issues can be decisive in a business's success or failure. In addition, historical intellectual property can be particularly important, both for the current value of the income it produces as well as the positive associations that it is able to create.

Protecting intellectual property is critical for tech industry business development

Intellectual property can be a major concern for entrepreneurs and inventors in Texas and across the country. This is especially true for anyone developing software or other tech startups, as the technology industry is driven by the value of intellectual property. Well-known disputes over copyrights, trademarks, patents and other IP issues have resulted in long-running business litigation involving major players in the industry. Due to the high value of tech IP, handling the transfer of copyrights and patents as well as assessing their value can be some of the most critical aspects for evaluating a potential merger or acquisition.

Be wary of losing a judgment in bankruptcy

If you are pursuing legal action against an entity, the last thing you want to worry about is the company going under or becoming insolvent due to a hefty judgment against it. This scenario brings about thoughts of Great Benefit Insurance filing for bankruptcy after Matt Damon’s character won a judgment against it in “The Rainmaker.”
