Intellectual Property rights are often shortened to “IPR”. The term covers intellectual productions such as distinctive marks, trademarks, designs, patents and works of art. These rights and the protection related thereto are quite essential for the operation of a successful business. Intellectual property rights gives the owner the opportunity to choose who should have access to exploit the right – possible against payment of license fees – and also access to prohibit others from unlawfully exploit or free-ride on your rights.
Are you the owner of intellectual assets, such as designs, trademarks or other distinctive marks, it is important that you ensure the protection of these, possible through a registration.
It is also important that you keep an eye on your rights, and react quickly if others unlawfully exploit your rights. If you achieve trademark, design, utility model or patent protection your rights apply from the time of the application – and not from the time the registration is final.
In the event that someone infringes your company’s rights, for example if another company copy your trademark it is important with a quick and competent intervention against infringers both home and abroad. The same applies if your company is met with allegations of infringements.
