Do you understand IP?

Do you understand IP? For some start-up companies and inventors Intellectual Property (IP) can be an unknown commodity. Having a basic understanding can help to inform business decisions and ensure you are able to support your innovation going forward. This could include approaching the relevant experts including intellectual property researchers such as Patent Seekers and/or patent, design or trademark attorneys for guidance as needed*.

With this in mind we were recently asked if there were any questions that newcomers to IP often ask. There are many, and so we asked Sue Leslie also relatively new to both IP and Patent Seekers, to develop an article answering some of these questions, including:

  • Should I keep my invention secret?
  • What is a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)?
  • Can I carry out my own prior art search?

Developed from a newcomers’ perspective we hope it answers many of the questions people new to IP may face.

Do you understand IP? You can read the full article in the latest addition of The Global IP Matrix.
