Intellectual property — #vmvresearch #vmvweb #vmvwiki #vmvmmedia #vmvdlt

When to consider intellectual property —

These are the key times when a business should pay particular attention to IP:
  • starting out
  • seeking investment
  • spending money on research and development
  • spending money on branding, eg logos, signage, website
  • establishing a digital presence
  • employing staff or contractors (or when a staff member is leaving)
  • dealing with confidential information
  • expanding into new areas or shifting business focus, eg a plumber who introduces a new service, or who becomes a product manufacturer
  • importing or exporting
  • selling all or part of your business.
