Steve Thrasher

Owner and Attorney at Thrasher Associates

Dallas, United States

You're probably looking at my profile because you've built software, or are developing an App either for your business or as the business itself.

You've probably heard a lot of rumors and 'folk advice' about what can and can't be protected -- especially about patents. You may have even heard that it's not possible to protect Apps and software.

That's just phooey!

I help businesses protect Apps and software with copyrights, trademarks, design rights, and more (yes, even patents), and I've been doing it for over 20 years.

As an entrepreneur and patent holder -- yes, of software patents -- (and co-author of a book on Copyright Law) I deliver a unique results-focussed, business-perspective to protecting your Apps and software.

Many of my clients have come to call me their "outside general counsel."

And, it probably costs a lot less than you think.

So, if you have an App or other software that you want to keep a competitor from copying, let's explore how I can help you capture that intellectual property by setting up a free consultation by calling: 214-502-5923.
