It’s essential to understand how your function’s, group’s and team’s behavior impacts the risks and opportunities related to intellectual property.
Everyone is essential in securing protection opportunities
Did you know that everyone involved in innovation, repairs, improvements, development, external partnerships, expert collaborations, and more are essential to our business? It may come as a surprise, but all of these roles can impact opportunities related to intellectual property and potentially create risks.
Make better choices
Knowing about this can assist you in making intelligent choices and developing successful plan.
Everyone is responsible for spotting valuable matter
If you make people more aware of intellectual property rights related to your project or department, it will be easier for them to plan and secure a profitable return in the future.
Your IP and patent department is busy
These departments tend to be busy, so doing all you can to assist them is essential. And it all begins with understanding the fundamentals of how the law operates.
Even if you have a team for your IP and patents, working together is essential to identify opportunities and avoid any possible risks.
Please take a look at what I have for you!
What do they copy, steal or misuse?
Anything that makes it possible for you to create and sell the product that your customers love, your competitors wish they had invented or created before you and are “easy” or profitable to copy.
In other words: If it’s a great business for you, it may very well be an awesome business case for a copycat!
Whether you make a device, the next medicine or tractor wheel. Your physical products often have a new or unique function, process or use.
Although you may think that designs are mostly about the looks of something, the touch and feel also be worth protecting against copies.
Recognition, trust and goodwill of your brand is often a huge part of what sells your products. Do you know which business , product names, or logos you can forbid others to use in their business?
Everything that drives your competitive edge is of value to your business. Safeguards you ideas, strategies and other know-how against abuse and theft from those you trust.
While copied concepts can frustrate many, there is more to effective protection of business models, than pointing fingers at your competitors. On the other hand your content, photos, texts and manuscripts may be easier to keep safe.
Trust in collaborations is essential, but it is not always enough. Understanding how to stay in control and build trusting relationships is essential.
