Intellectual Property and Trademark Registration
Intellectual property (IP) is anything that is an intangible creation and which has the potential to be used in commerce either immediately or in the future. Intellectual property can be in the form of ideas, inventions, artistic works, literary works, music, names, designs, logos and symbols, and these are categorized into; copyrights, patents, industrial designs and trademarks.
By obtaining the rights over your intellectual property you are given exclusive rights to it in all countries where the property is registered. By owning your intellectual property, whether it be a trademark, patent or copyright, you are effectively preserving your rights to using the mark and if you so wish you can sell your rights to a third party. Registering your trademark will increase your brand awareness, heighten consumer loyalty and prevent competitors from passing off or infringing your trademark rights.
