Generating IP for your business.
1. Innovation Awareness
Do your employees know what IP is and do you encourage your employees to generate IP?
With a basic knowledge of IP and with suitable incentives, employees may be more likely to identify when they have created something that could be worth protecting. To help your employees to identify when they may have generated useful IP, Sanderson & Co can run seminars that are tailored specifically to the aims of your company and that set-out the basics of IP.
We can also discuss with you ways to encourage your employees to create IP and tell you about the IP that they have created. This IP could then be used to protect your products or brand or to generate income through licences and assignments.
2. Innovation Capture
Do you know what IP has been generated by your employees?
Your employees may be thinking of new ideas all the time but those ideas may be overlooked if they are only mentioned to you in passing. Sanderson & Co can help you keep track of the IP that is developed by your employees by providing you with forms tailored to your business that can be used to record IP.
These forms may sound simple but collecting the right information is not always straightforward. They are also a useful tool which can be used by you or us when assessing how best to utilise any IP.
3. Innovation Assessment
Do you know what is worth protecting?
Some ideas are worth protecting whereas others are less useful or are not protectable, and it is not always easy to spot when useful IP has been created. IP rights can be complicated, but Sanderson & Co. can help you to identify whether a particular idea can be protected and is worth protecting.
We can also provide advice on which types of protection are suitable for a particular idea and carry out searches to help you to decide if your idea is sufficiently original.
