Frequently asked questions
What is intellectual property?
Intellectual property refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions, literary and artistic works, symbols, names, and designs, that are protected by law.
How do I protect my intellectual property?
You can protect your intellectual property by securing patents, trademarks, and copyrights, as well as by keeping your trade secrets confidential. It’s important to work with an experienced intellectual property solicitor to ensure that your rights are fully protected.
What happens if I don’t protect my branding/logo?
If you don’t protect your logo, others may be able to use it without your permission. This can lead to confusion among customers and potentially harm your brand’s reputation. Protecting your logo through trademark registration can help prevent others from using it without your consent.
What are the different types of intellectual property?
The main types of intellectual property are patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. Each type provides different protections for different types of creations.
What happens if someone infringes my intellectual property rights?
If someone infringes your intellectual property rights, you have the right to take legal action to stop the infringement and seek damages for any harm that was caused. This typically involves filing a claim in court.
