Defending your Intellectual Property

Posted by Veronica Wells on April 8, 2016No Comments

           Intellectual Property (IP) refers to the protection of creations of the mind, which have both a moral and a commercial value. It is referred to creations of the intellect for which a monopoly is assigned to designated owners by law. Some common types of intellectual property rights (IPR) are trademarks, copyrights and in some jurisdictions trade secrets. All these cover music, literature, and other artistic works; discoveries and inventions; and words, phrases, symbols, and designs.  The law protects the Intellectual Property, which thus enables people to earn recognition or financial benefit from what they invent or create. By striking the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system aims to foster an environment in which creativity and innovation can flourish. IP confers on individuals, enterprises or other entities the right to exclude others from the use of their creations. Consequently, intellectual property rights (IPRs) may have a direct and substantial impact on industry and trade as the owner of an IPR may – through the enforcement of such a right – prevent the manufacture, use or sale of a product which incorporates the IPR. But, what happens when someone breaks the law and tries to use your IP for his or her gain, without your expressed consent. You can go through the entire case on your own, but that would be extremely difficult. What you can do, is to enlist the services of a IP Law firm that will protect your rights and fight for your case.
