Keep your business identifiable with trademark protection

How long do you think it will take you to get your business off the ground? More than likely, you will spend a significant amount of time getting your name out to your customer base. Once people know who you are, you will need some trademark protection in order to remain identifiable to those you provide goods or services to, whether just here in the Houston area or elsewhere.

Screenwriters can use stories in the public domain legally

The entertainment industry can be a difficult place to maneuver. After several decades of storytelling, it may seem as if there is not much more to be explored with completely original content. For this reason, the law allows screenwriters here in Texas and elsewhere to take advantage of stories that exist in the public domain and are no longer guarded by their original owners. The material could come from a variety of sources, including video games, comic books or other literary works, including other screenplays.
