Intellectual property: copyright and trademarks
As a business you will need to make sure you protect any business ideas, designs, copy, know-how and commercial applications that you create. This is your intellectual property and for many businesses in the creative sector and especially the IT sector this can represent a significant part of the way in which you earn income. Unless properly protected you could have your ideas copied or worse, perhaps, be unable to sell the product you have created.
For many businesses, especially in the software development field, licensing the use of their intellectual property is crucial to their business model. Having the right licensing agreement in place will allow you to do that without risk.
At Cousins Business Law we have experience of advising on the commercial exploitation of all aspects of intellectual property including licensing and assignment of copyright, trade marks, designs, know- how and their commercial applications. Over the years we have developed particular expertise in the IT sector including advice on software licensing, maintenance and support and computer games rights licensing, development and distribution.
