The importance of securing Intellectual Property/ Intellectual Property Rights may arrive from different and not always equally obvious needs. Developing and maintaining patents, trade marks and registered designs require resources and are expensive. Sometimes we work with customers with no real strategy related behind their desire to patent. You really should have one!
The most obvious reason to secure your innovation though an IPR process is likely to ensure that the results of your activities are disseminated and exploited to your benefit to the greatest extent possible.
Sometimes IPR consists of layers carefully developed to strategically protect a wider aspect than the product itself. This may be to demotivate or discourage competition and/ or to highlight company assets.
