Intellectual Property

Every Business has Intellectual Property and should Protect it

January 20, 2009

Unless you just have a lifestyle business you need to understand intellectual property rights. In fact even if you have a lifestyle business, you still need to know enough about intellectual property rights so as to avoid trouble by unwittingly infringing others rights.

WIPO has made it easy for SMEs to find out about intellectual property by publishing several well written guides here.

So, regardless of the product or service you provide, you should consider protecting, managing and enforcing your intellectual property. Almost every SME has a trade name or one or more trademarks and should consider protecting them.
