When you are forming a business, one of the things you have to take time to develop is your intellectual property (IP). What will you call your brand? What will your logo look like? Do you have any software, equipment, or other innovations to patent? You want to be sure to retain the copyright to all of your digital and printed content. Why is it essential to think about these details in advance?
- Protect your business from infringement – By having your trademarks, copyrights, and patents in place from the beginning, you help to ensure that your IP will not be infringed upon by a competitor.
- Make compensation open and shut – If a competitor even accidentally capitalizes on your IP and profits from it, having all of the proper protections in place will allow you to reach a rapid settlement.
- Avoid the time and expense of court – If you really do have everything protected, no one is going to want to drag it out in court and waste their own time and money just to lose. You are more likely to secure a settlement rather than having to follow through with a lengthy and potentially expensive lawsuit to get what you deserve.
