When we say ‘intellectual property’, what does this actually mean? In short, we use our intellect / our mind, to come up with an idea. When we bring that idea to life, it becomes our property.
When we look at your business, there is likely to be lots of examples of intellectual property that you are using. These range from the name of the business and the branding to the way you describe your products or services, the products themselves, the software and code, the photography and videos, and so on.
In a world where innovation is fast and the way we can access and share information is easier than ever, it is no surprise that businesses are very keen to prevent others from using their intellectual property without permission. We like to call it ‘riding on the coat tails’ of another’s success and to be caught doing this can be very costly.
You might be thinking…
- I don’t know if I have any intellectual property
- I won’t be able to protect my intellectual property
- It will be too expensive to protect my intellectual property
- I use somebody else’s intellectual property
We understand your concerns which is why;
- We help you understand what intellectual property is.
- We’ll look at the best ways of protecting it, even if it means using a third party specialist.
- We always keep our fees fixed and fair.
- We can help you ensure you’re not using someone else’s intellectual property without the right permission.
Our approach to helping you make the most of your intellectual property.
Building a strategy
This is where one of our experts will get to know you and your business to understand what IP you currently have. From here, we’ll discuss your plans for the future and how your IP can play a part in this. We’ll look at your existing processes for managing your IP but don’t worry if you haven’t got anything, we can help.
Putting plans into action
Once we’ve agreed on a strategy or a service that will help you achieve the outcomes we would have discussed with you, we’ll go ahead and get started.
Depending on the level of support you’d like from us, we can manage your IP portfolio on your behalf or we can help you maintain it with regular reminders and health checks.
Education & training
We can help your team build a greater awareness and understanding of intellectual property. Our training ranges from introductory sessions on what IP is through to more technical areas of IP that are designed to help your team to manage the company’s IP themselves internally.
