About IP

Nearly all businesses have some form of valuable intellectual property.

This can be a company or product name, a piece of proprietary technology, a product design or creative work.

The key types of intellectual property rights are:
• Patents
• Registered and unregistered Trade Marks
• Copyright
• Registered and unregistered Designs
• Database rights

It is vitally important to protect these assets in order to create a competitive advantage over competitors. This includes having intellectual property insurance which covers the legal cost of enforcing your rights against infringers.

If you are unsure whether your business owns any intellectual property we strongly advise you visit the UK Intellectual Property office’s website. They have a range of online tools to help assess, protect and commercialise your intellectual property.
