Investing in developing an intellectual property portfolio is, strictly speaking, a decision aimed at the long-term. When devising such strategy, we support you in the following areas:
Identification: Artes helps in developing a comprehensive overview of all your intangible assets as well as a process to keep this overview up to date. In addition, Artes provides an overview of the investments and enforcement by competitors in order to stay a step ahead.
Protection: Artes assists in ensuring that the identified intangible goods are properly protected by applying for patent or trade mark registration, and keeping technical or business information secret. We inform you of the factors to take into account such as application and maintenance costs, the territoriality of the protection and the arrangements with stakeholders on the use of your intellectual property.
Commercialization: Artes helps you in the review of the exploitation of your IP, dealing amongst others with questions on the use of IP as a marketing tool, the opportunity to grant licences to third parties in order to generate revenue streams and the relevance of IP for tax breaks. Enforcement: enforcing your IP is crucial to make the investment worthwhile. Artes advises you on the best way to enforce your IP, including assessing whether litigation is cost-efficient and worthwhile.
