How can I make the most of my intellectual property? Corporate & Commercial

Your trademark, logo, brands, patents, designs and copyright are all examples of intellectual property, which help to differentiate your business from those of your competitors.

Licensing your IP by allowing others to use it on acceptable terms may help you to develop your business.

If your IP is used without permission, it can be extremely damaging.

Examples of IP infringement can include when someone:

  • uses your copyright work without your permission,
  • makes or sells your design or
  • uses a trademark that is identical or similar yours…

Some types of IP can or must be registered and some are protectable without registration.

If in doubt, it is worth taking advice on exploiting and protecting your IP.
