Breeching the subject of IP

Embarking on a new business, choosing the right agency for your branded marketing tools to establish your footing in the marketplace can be head spinning enough. The process to brand your business correctly has to be thorough and likewise how you then go to on to protect it.
Firstly you need to establish what sort of protection you need:

Patents – Covers how things work, whether a motion, a recipe, a formula
Designs – The appearance of a design or product design protecting its’ original shape, style etc
Trade Marks – Similar to signs so usually words and a logo design, easily and simply distinguishable
Copyright – Protecting rights to original pieces of work that is recorded, written, filmed etc
Depending on what you have created you may need one or all four.

Embracing these facilities can offer a good defence for any future corporate squabbles, becoming a deterrent to violation while adding a very valuable asset to a company. If you are looking for investment, big companies feel it is a pre-requisite to offer the assurance they need to believe in your product or services. It also shows a degree of individuality to a business that wants to be seen as unique and prove how serious you are to your business plan.

Kiteleys has recognised what a real minefield copyright; patents and so on can be to both new and existing companies and because of this, in most cases it is then left on the back-burner. Getting sound legal advice without costing the earth could be what saves your business from real infringement problems or aid growth into extended markets.
Since Intellectual property is becoming of more importance Kiteleys is now organising a series of free seminars to help companies understand the subject and offer advice, as well as the do’s and don’ts.
It will also ask the fundamentals like; Do you know if you own your website? Do you really own your business IP?
In the meantime, if you would like any help or assistance regarding IP please contact Kiteleys or if you would like to attend a future FREE IP seminar, please also get in touch at the Bournemouth office, Tel: 01425 278866.
