Recognize the Value of
Intellectual Capital

Capitalize on
Intellectual Property

In this day and age, it is imperative for businesses to leverage the value of their intellectual property through the acquisition and maintenance of registrable rights – patents, trademarks, copyrights and industrial designs – and the identification and management of all other unregistrable intellectual capital and intangible assets.

The standard Stuff -

Registrable IP Rights

Dipchand LLP can help your business properly identify and secure the following more well-known and traditional registrable IP rights:

Patents

Patents grant exclusive rights to make, use, and sell an invention. Patent protection is granted – and enforced – on a jurisdiction by jurisdiction basis making a coordinated global patent strategy even more critical.

Trademarks

Trademarks are words, designs, sounds or smells that associate the trademark with claimed goods or services. Use of a mark is critical to the mark’s endurance and a business’ reputation both of which need to be fostered and, as with patents, globally managed.

Copyrights

Copyrights and associated rights give owners the sole right to produce or reproduce a work or a substantial part of it. “Work” includes literary, artistic, dramatic and musical works and is integral to the protection of all manner of results.

Industrial design

Industrial design are features of a product that optimize it or make it generally more appealing, for example, patterns on a sweater or the shape of a computer monitor. Once an industrial design is registered, the owner has exclusive rights to the design for up to 10 years in Canada.

The Other Stuff -

Intellectual Capital & Intangible Assets

An organization’s most valuable assets are often unregistrable intellectual capital and intangible assets which are prone to go unidentified and, consequently, unleveraged. Dipchand LLP can change that to materially affect the bottom line by helping to identify, manage and protect the things that allows you to do that special thing you do.
