What is IP
Intellectual Property (IP) is the application of the mind to develop something new or original. IP can exist in various forms; a new invention, brand, design or artistic creation.
IP is an important asset in today's knowledge economy and should be strategically managed.
Protecting and managing your IP is critical when establishing your presence in the market. It is often the difference between success or failure.
Some forms of IP require a formal application and examination process before a right can be registered. Other rights come into play without the need for a registration process.
