Intellectual Property: the essentials

Covering copyright, patents, designs and trade marks, Intellectual Property (IP) rights are a form of protection that gives the owner the ability to take legal action under civil law to try and stop others from making, using, importing or selling their creation. The type of protection you need depends on what you have created. It is just as important to make sure that you don’t infringe the IP rights of other companies. Learn more about copyright, designs, patents and trademarks by using the links below.  There are case studies that show how other businesses took expert advice to develop and protect their new products and services.
