The world’s most forward looking companies combine top-tier talent with the focus and flexibility demanded in the 21st century marketplace. It’s time your business/organization did the same. But why do you require a reputed and an experienced law firm? The first reason is to protect your intellectual property. The importance of intellectual property cannot be underestimated.
What is intellectual property?
Our mind has the ability and the creativity to think amazing things. These wonderful ideas or creations of mind are called intellectual property. Though they are intangible, they have immense potential to translate into viable commercial opportunities. Patents, trademarks, copyrights, geographical indications and industrial designs come under the umbrella of intellectual property.
What are intellectual property rights?
Intellectual Property Rights are your legal entitlement over whatever that wonderful mind of yours cooks up. These rights grant you exclusive power to exploit and benefit from your creations of mind. They are considered crucial to encouraging innovation by providing a financial incentive to stimulate creativity, whereby you can reap the benefits from your inventions and be more willing to invest in research and development.
Why are intellectual property rights important?
In today’s economy, ideas have great power. It is no surprise to note that returns on investment for ideas are higher than returns on other factors of production.
Intellectual property rights contribute to ensuring profitability from ideas. Hence, they add a layer of protection to ideas that otherwise would have been pillaged ruthlessly by others.
Why is it essential to protect intellectual property rights?
In this era of the digital world, it is easier to pilferage innovations than it was ever before. An idea can be transmitted globally, instantly via the internet. A new machine can be reverse engineered, perfectly reproduced and put on market in another country with minimal effort. An out of the box business venture can be analyzed and recreated without any credits or benefits to the original creator.
This is a big bad world. You can never be too careful about your intellectual property rights, lest someone steal them and take advantage of them. Ensuring that rights are in place provides a legal basis from which to protect against copying.
It is estimated by Interpol, International Chamber of Commerce, FBI and World Customs Organization that approximately 7-8% of world trade every year is in counterfeit goods. This equals almost $512 billion in sales that are lost by the original innovators like you. Theft of intellectual property poses a risk to all industry sectors and hence it is essential to take active steps to protect them.
If you want to exclude other individuals or enterprises from taking advantage of your great and innovative ideas, you need to take steps to protect your intellectual property rights.
