Kaufman & Canoles' Intellectual Property Law and Franchising Practice Group has earned the reputation as one of the finest Practice Groups in the State specializing in the creation, protection and licensing of patents, trademarks, copyrights and other intellectual property rights. Boasting three past Presidents of the Virginia State Bar Intellectual Property Law Section and two members of the International Franchise Association, the Group has collective wisdom and experience in all facets of protecting your creative ideas and intellectual property rights. This experience includes intimate knowledge of the workings of all Divisions of the Eastern District of Virginia's "rocket docket," many successful jury trials in both federal and state courts, and experience before the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Sharing this wealth of knowledge and furthering the community's understanding of this particularly technical area of the law is the purpose of this blog. We aim to educate, elucidate and elevate the practice in this area of the law. Along the way, we hope to have some fun as well. So stay tuned; we will broadcast our blog on a twice weekly basis and hope to garner your interest and participation.--Stephen E. Noona
