Trademarks and service marks are used in commerce as a means for a business or another entity to express and distinguish themselves from other companies in the same market. Trademarks identify a company's product via any of the below, including any combination of the below:
- Graphic symbols
Service marks, on the other hand, relate to a company's services and/or events.

Copyright Law in Los Angeles County
Beverly Hills, California ( which is adjacent to Hollywood, California), is home to many creative minds. However, Hollywood does not have a monopoly on creative minds by any stretch of the imagination. But this is where a great deal of the business related to creative works takes place. It is also where most of the theft takes place. Thus, our firm is dedicated to protecting and enforcing the rights of creative professionals. As a subset of intellectual property law, copyright law helps protect specific work product created by screenwriters, novelists, musicians, artists, and many others. Copyright law grants to the creator or the owner of the copyright the exclusive right to copy his or her own work as he or she wants, including:
- Displaying it;
- Exploiting it;
- Distributing it;
- Performing it, or
- Licensing the work.
Copyright law also allows the owner of the copyright to prohibit others from doing any of the above unless the product is subject to the fair use doctrine or other defense. The fair use doctrine allows copyrighted works to be used without the owner's permission in certain circumstances. Examples include:
- Critical commentary
- Research and scholarship
- News reporting.
At Lowe & Associates, we are experts in copyright law and aggressively help keep our clients and their creative products protected.

Contract law is the fundamentals of all business and most all entertainment matters. All businesses deal with contracts.
