What you need to know about protecting your Intellectual Property:
A trademark enables a service provider or trader to identify their services or goods within the market. Trade marking your business is a common way to protect your business’s property.
Aside from trademarking, trade secrets must also be protected. This type of confidential information Is often exchanged with a potential customer or supplier in order to secure a deal and therefore, should also be protected. A confidentiality agreement may be used to ensure this information is contained and your intellectual property is protected.
Your intellectual property should also be protected from previous employees through carefully drafted employment contracts.
