IP investigations or Intellectual Property Investigations are becoming an ever increasing practice as the world becomes increasingly digitalized thereby making it easier to copy intellectual property.
What is Intellectual Property?
Intellectual property is a term or a collective reference which encompasses several types of intangible assets:
- Trade Secrets
In todays economy, we are in a never ending battle to stay one step ahead of the competition and the “copiers”. When a unique idea takes the world by storm a trend will emerge. Organizations are afforded certain protections that give them the ability to claim an idea, name or trademark.
What can we offer?
We help companies identify IP theft and threats internally with their supply chain and externally. Our investigators can lay down a comprehensive plan to mitigate threats and look into suspected infringement.
IP Investigations Services
Our team can provide investigative services to companies that believe their work is being abused or taken and advertized as their own. We will collect evidence of any violations for property such as:
- Literary works (digital software also falls into this category)
- Musial works
- Dramatic works
- Sculptures, photographs and graphics
- Auditory works
From start till finish of the investigation we will document all activity. All evidence gathered will be compiled into a report to be used in court. We will conduct extensive probes into potential violators of your IP for the purpose of accurate identification especially if the leak or theft has occurred on social media and may be difficult to identify the user.
