A patent is an exclusive right to use and exploit your invention for strategic and commercial gain. But many organizations struggle to understand the nuances of patenting and how to use it effectively in business. Our patent experts, with broad international training, experience and technical depth, can guide you through the entire patent lifecycle and put you in the best position to capitalize on this IP asset.
Trademarks act as indicators of source or origin of a product or service. The most significant aspect of your branding, goodwill creation and valuation is a well-managed trademark. BIP’s trademark experts specialize in assisting clients build strong trademark portfolios across countries through well-planned protection and defense programs.
Copyrights protect original works of authorship. They are the core of business in many fields such as publishing, entertainment, television, software and animation. The avenues for monetization of content that you create is ever increasing with the growth of digital in addition to traditional methods. The copyright consultants from BIP work with leading studios, app and game developers and distributors in helping them reap the fruits of their creativity through tactical registrations, licensing and due diligence.
While IP is assuming high importance for all companies, its value for a startup can be extremely high, depending on the nature of the startup. While IP, many a times, forms the core of technology/knowledge driven startups based on novel ideas, the spectrum of its value varies for others. Irrespective of the nature of a startup, IP can help in gaining business/competitive value. BIP offers a unique end-to-end IP counseling program for startups taking you through conception of an idea, to its protection and commercialization.
e-Commerce portals, aggregators, marketplaces, content distributors, mobile applications and other online/mobile businesses generate valuable IP, which can be effectively used for gaining business and competitive advantage, if appropriate steps are taken towards the said end. BIP’s team of highly qualified IP/Patent attorneys has helped several such businesses in India and across the world protect and utilize IP/Patents for business benefit. Our team has also helped many clients build strong IP/Patent portfolios, which have assumed very high financial valuation, and have also been acquired at lucrative values.
While a plethora of business opportunities are available to content owners and creators, capitalizing on the said opportunities requires an insight into the entertainment business, expertise in copyright and several other laws, knowledge of modern technology and awareness of transactions in the industry. BIP’s unique entertainment and media law team merges expertise in law, management and business to offer value added services.
