Protecting your Intellectual Property

In an increasingly connected world, those seeking to infringe intellectual property are finding new ways to achieve their aims.

It is also becoming more difficult for businesses to deal with infringers. Infringements often have a pronounced international character and can be characterised by a mixture of online and offline activity.

Intellectual property rights fall into one of more of these four main areas: 

  • Patents
  • Copyright
  • Trade marks and passing off
  • Design rights, registered and unregistered

Often, a strong response to infringement will depend on whether or not your have identified and registered your IP assets properly.
