Intellectual property such as copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets are valuable assets that help businesses distinguish themselves in a crowded marketplace. The intellectual property your company owns is part of its brand. Strong branding can add value and create new opportunities for your business. However, if your intellectual property isn't protected, others may be able to profit from your company's hard work and good reputation. Don't let this happen to you.
