What is Intellectual Property?

In the vast landscape of commerce and creativity, intellectual property (IP) relates to the valuable intellectual creations of the mind. It is important that you know your IP rights to ensure that your ideas and innovations are protected. IP rights can be infringed when material is used, copied or exploited without the permission from the owner of those rights.

Inventions, artwork, designs and brands, as well as business plans, specialist know-how and customer data, all deserve the best protection. Intellectual property is a valuable asset for many businesses to support a company’s continued growth and thrive in a competitive world.
