To protect your business, you must protect its IP
The success of your business lies in the value you create over the long-term. If you can’t prove that your business actually owns all of its IP, you will have trouble down the track seeking investment and fending off competitors. If you’re serious about this growth, it is crucial that your business outright owns (and protects) all intellectual property that has been made for it.
It’s not worth the risk
Without a proper assignment of the IP, you run the risk of external or unreliable workers alleging that the IP actually belongs to them - or worse, running off to start (or sell to) a competitor. Without a trademark in place, you risk confusion in the market, copy-cats, infringement claims, and scammers taking advantage of your unprotected brand. Without an NDA, you leave yourself open to security threats, leaked company data, threats to your IP, or people starting (or selling to) a competitor. Simply put, without the right protections in place, you are endangering your business and the possibility of further growth, investment or an exit (remember that proof of IP ownership is a crucial step in a buyer’s or investor’s due diligence process). There is no excuse for startups and businesses with innovative tech not to have bulletproof IP arrangements.
Move ahead confidently with bullet-proof arrangements
Our IP package is specifically designed to cover your key IP needs. In our experience, most businesses can reach an adequate level of IP protection using:
- An IP assignment deed, in order to ensure IP is properly owned by the company and not the individual founders, developers, employees or other service providers
- An NDA, in order to ensure third-parties who are exposed to sensitive information are placed under confidentiality obligations
- A trademark application, to ensure the brand is not infringing someone else's rights and to protect against similarly named competitors
Don't wait for the day there’s a dispute to find yourself a legal advisor. Sort out your IP now so that you can confidently hire workers, seek investment and grow rapidly.
