  • keep competitors away;

  • making sure you do not impede on others’ rights;

  • prevent employees from assisting your competitors;

  • promote your business to investors, licensees as well as potential buyers.

Belinda Breakspear explains the ins an outs of:

  • When should I protect my intellectual property?

  • What can I protect?

  • Should I register my logo as a trade mark? 

  • Should I apply for a patent?

  • What about global IP protection?
