Overseas Business Risk

Intellectual property rights

Having the right type of intellectual property protection helps you to stop people stealing or copying: the names of your products or brands, your inventions, the design or look of your products and things you write, make or produce. Copyright, patents, designs and trademarks are all types of intellectual property protection. You get some types of protection automatically, others you have to apply for.
