IT & Intellectual Property Law
What is intellectual property?
Intellectual property, or “IP”, generally refers to creations of the mind. Virtually all businesses will encounter intellectual property on a daily basis, yet many owners do not realise what IP assets they actually have, or know how to protect or exploit them
The intellectual property solicitors at Scott Bailey LLP advise business clients on what assets they have, what they need to protect and exploit those IP assets, and how to defend them in the case of intellectual property infringement.
What is IT law?
Information technology law (also called “cyberlaw” or “IT law”) relates to the law surrounding information technology, including computing and the internet.
IT is an ever increasingly important subject for all modern businesses.
Whether sourcing IT hardware, designing new software, or developing a website for your online presence or trade, it is vital to seek expert advice when commencing business IT projects.
Seeking the correct advice at the start, can save huge sums of time and money at later stages, particularly if a dispute arises.
