How to protect your business’s intellectual property in key international marketsPosted on
With the UK economy showing signs of recovery, companies are being urged to seek global trade opportunities and export more goods and services.
Against this backdrop, May’s Chamberlink magazine carries (on page 34) an international trade feature, in which our Lucy Walker and Nick Braddon explain how to protect your business’s intellectual property (IP) in key international markets.
The feature focuses on the three main registered IP rights – trade marks, patents and designs – and explains how, with the help of growing international IP systems, increasing harmonisation of laws and ever-improving communication, it is less complex and more cost effective for businesses to obtain these rights in foreign markets.
For further information on any of the topics discussed in the feature, please get in touch with one of the authors or your usual contact at Barker Brettell.
