In today's highly competitive market place, businesses must maintain their unique selling point in order to stay ahead of their game. This is increasingly coming from Intellectual Property Rights (IPR). IPR arise in a variety of forms which may be in your trading name, your logo or graphic image, a slogan, or the design of your product, business plan and inventions.
It is essential for businesses to develop an Intellectual Property strategy in order to protect and exploit their IPR in order to grow the business and to defend it from those who might wish to profit unjustly from its success.
It is common for businesses to invest significant sums in marketing. If a business’ brand is then copied by a rival it is essential that the appropriate safeguards are in place to protect the IPR in the brand and the time and money invested in it.
