Protecting your businesses intellectual property is important. From branding, design and inventions.
Intellectual property comes in two main forms:
- Protection for your business in the form of copyright, trademarks, registered designs and patents.
- The knowledge, know-how and unique offerings of your business.
It is a fact that most businesses have no idea of the intellectual property within the business and, therefore, make no effort to protect it.
