Arts, Marketing and Media
Intellectual property rights are at the core of the arts, marketing and media industries. In the public sphere, a company's brand, designs and other livery are the foundation of customer perception.
A name, image, logo, specific design, sound or other patentable innovation are of paramount importance to public brand recognition. These can be the most valuable assets to an individual or company in the creative industries.
Behind the scenes, IP rights are the backbone of crucial transactions that protect your interests. These rights impact the negotiation of contracts and agreements involving copyright, licensing of goods or services, protection of confidentiality or the commercialisation of creative projects.
Creating an IP strategy can safeguard your ideas from being copied or piggy-backed – from creation to market. Like any good marketing strategy, a corresponding IP strategy allows the development of these assets by utilising a range of available IP rights.
