3 KEYS TO A SUCCESSFUL INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRASTRUCTURE
Your company will save substantial time and money in the long-run, if effort is put into establishing a solid intellectual property infrastructure at the early stages and a long-term plan for your intellectual property development is established.
There are several keys to developing a successful company infrastructure from an intellectual property perspective:
#1 RESEARCH YOUR MARKET SPACE FROM A LEGAL PERSPECTIVE
We believe that knowledge is power and that it is better to be proactive rather than reactive. Infiniti Law can assist you in obtaining a thorough search of your market space with regard to your trade name, trademarks used on your product(s), and domain names. We will then help you analyze this information in light of current laws and help you develop a comprehensive intellectual property development plan.
#2 FILE EARLY
The nited States Intellectual Property system relies primarily on priority of filing. As such, you should register your trademarks, domain names, and copyrights as early as possible to prevent any later conflicts.
#3 HAVE DOCUMENTS DESIGNED FOR INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTION FROM THE BEGINNING
Your intellectual property needs protection on two fronts: Internally and Externally. By internally, we mean that you need to protect your intellectual property from misuse by and potential ownership claims from your employees or independent contractors. By externally, we mean that you need to protect your intellectual property from misuse, misappropriation, and ownership claims by your customers, strategic partners, and vendors.
Typical Documents Used for Internal Intellectual Property Protection:
- Development of Trade Secret Protection Plan and Design of Accompanying Documents
- Employee Non-Disclosure Agreements
- Employee Invention Assignment Agreement
Typical Documents Used for External Intellectual Property Protection:
- Non-Disclosure Agreement
- Licensing Agreements
