Every business has a trade name. However, some companies are more commercially dependent on this name than others. No matter what your situation is, you will need to effectively protect your business's name. Intellectual property rights allow you to do just that. More importantly, the effective application of intellectual property rights serves to protect your key assets or those of your company. This extends to products, brands, designs, photos, advertising campaigns, websites, inventions and innovations. It is important to protect the ideas and products you develop and use against misuse by others.

Taking action against misuse
