Intellectual Property Services
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 to protect your 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 Intellectual Property (IP) asset.
Trademarks act as the indicator 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 helping clients build strong trademark portfolios across multiple 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 multiple avenues for monetization of the content you create are ever increasing with the growth of digital on top of traditional methods. The copyright consultants from BIP work with leading studios, app and game developers, and distributors to help them reap the fruits of their creativity through tactical registrations, licensing and due diligence.
While IP is increasing in importance for all companies, depending on the nature of a startup business, its value can be extremely high. While novel IP ideas often form the core of technology/knowledge driven startups, the spectrum of its value varies for other businesses. Irrespective of the nature of a startup, IP can help gain both business and competitive value. BIP offers a unique end-to-end IP counseling program for startups taking you through the 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. This can then be effectively used for gaining business and competitive advantage, if you take the appropriate steps. BIP’s team of highly qualified IP/Patent attorneys has helped several businesses in India and across the world protect and utilize IP/Patents for the benefit of their business. Our team has also helped many clients build strong IP/Patent portfolios, which have achieved very high financial valuations, and been acquired at lucrative values.
While a plethora of business opportunities are available to content owners and creators, capitalizing on them requires an insight into entertainment businesses. Our expertise in copyright and other legal areas, knowledge of modern technology and awareness of transactions in the industry uniquely place us to serve entertainment and media businesses. BIP’s law team merges expertise in law, management and business to offer value-added services. Having worked closely with Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and other film industries, our team understands the nuances and transactions of each sector and is well placed to advise you.
