Logistics And Intellectual Property

logisticsIntellectual Property (IP)

Protecting your business in overseas markets is essential for any business looking to export. Intellectual Property (IP) gives you the basis for securing the commercial rights to what makes you unique. In a world where ideas can easily be transmitted and reproduced at minimal cost, IP stops anyone else using your ideas and gives you a proper chance to profit from them.

Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) are territorial. They only give protection in the countries where they are granted or registered. If you are thinking about trading abroad then you
should consider registering your IP rights abroad.

We can advise you on:

  • What precautions to take prior to launching your products, processes or services abroad
  • The different types of IPR available
  • The difference between registered and unregistered IPR
  • What should be covered in an IP audit
  • How to use IP when researching a licensee or negotiating licensing agreements
  • The international routes to IP protection
  • How IP is valued as an intangible asset in your company and how to licence this out for profit
