Managing company’s intellectual property

An increasing proportion of companies’ capital is in the form of intellectual property. For this reason, intellectual property rights (IPR) are becoming increasingly important in the protection of a company's competence and its information acquisition process. A company should have an IPR strategy for managing its intellectual property.

A company’s intellectual property and inventions

The patents and trademarks you obtain for your invention are an example of intellectual property. You can draw up an IPR strategy for managing them.

Protecting inventions, product ideas, and knowhow

Your company should protect its products and knowhow from attempts at imitation. You can, for example, take out a patent or use technical protection.

Selling and licensing product rights

Protect your product as early on as possible, so that you can, if you wish, sell or license the rights. Always enter into a written agreement on sales or licensing.
