      Importance of Protecting Your IP Assets

      Important Revenue Stream

      In a world of rapid development, globalization, advancement of technology and increase in commercial activities, Intellectual Property assets can be your company’s intangible assets to assist in your business growth in revenue. Such assets can be financially exploited because like physical property, they can be sold, assigned and franchised, amongst many other more dealings.

      In case of a business merger or acquisition, registered and protected IP assets can increase the value of your business significantly as well.

      Full & Secure Protection

      Intellectual property can consist of many different areas, from logos and corporate identity to products, services and processes that differentiate your business offering from that of other traders. Depending on individual circumstances, you can use patent, trademark or copyright – all which cover different areas of intellectual property to prevent anyone else from utilising your ideas for their own profit without your written consent.

      Marketing & Branding

      Your Intellectual Property assets play a crucial role in your business’s marketing and branding strategy. When it comes to successful marketing, it acts as a crucial tool in creating an excellent business image to promote your brand into the market and to ensure that there is no likelihood of confusion among the public.

      Coupled with well-planned marketing and branding strategy, intellectual property assets can be seen as an investment in maintaining a company’s competitive advantage and edge in the market.

      Security & Loans

      The new Trademarks Act 2019 came into force on 27 December 2019 and recognises trademark as an asset in respect of which a security interest may attach, thus allowing a registered trademark to be assigned or to be the subject of a charge in the same way as other personal or movable property.

      IAN IP has a 90% proven high success rate in assisting clients to achieve worldwide successful intellectual property registrations, whereby our clients’ success translates as our success too.
