Any product created using human intelligence belongs to the author. The owner of the creation has the exclusive right to use it, sell or transfer this right to others for personal or commercial use. Unfortunately, in modern reality, it is very easy to copy such objects, especially thanks to digital technologies.
Therefore, there are frequent reports of plagiarism in the world of music, art, and copying of famous brands. That is why when creating something new, it is important to think about IP protection in advance.
What is IP protection?
This abbreviation stands for intellectual property protection. Each country has its own laws to counter abuse and violation of the rights of authors. To protect against infringement on an international scale, there are transnational mechanisms for the defense of intellectual belongings, approved by various conventions and provisions.
The lawyers of our firm provide a range of services for the protection of intellectual property rights both domestically and at the international level.
The process to receive IP protection
To protect an author’s product, invention, or trademark, they must be registered with the state. There are certificates valid in certain countries or internationally. Protecting your intellectual property is granted for a specified time (i.e, 10 years), after which it is essential to renew it.
We were pleased to cooperate with Fintecharbor on the registration of an international trademark. Counselors coped with their tasks 100%! Highly recommend.
This is not the first time I work with this firm, every time everything goes just fine.
