Recognising IP assets and protecting them so they may be exploited for their actual value is trouble businesses often fall on a long way.

Sadly, which could, in the end, cause misplaced costs and expensive litigation. The key, therefore, is to concurrently maintain a watch at the intangible in addition to the tangible assets.

The effects of failing to manage and guard intellectual property

Proper management and maximisation of intellectual property require a certain level of vigilance.

Failure to adequately protect intellectual property can cost the owner or business not only sums of money but, in some cases, the company’s total value.

Simplified service as well as cost and damage limits. The increase in intellectual property litigation cannot be overlooked. We have seen a rise in the number of cases processed both in court and in resolution proceedings with the IPO from year to year. Even so, enforcement costs can be too high, especially for some SMEs.

While managing intellectual property, it is essential to receive IP due date alerts for colleagues and clients (s).
