What does Formula 1 have to do with intellectual property?
Are you a sporty entrepreneur or an entrepreneurial sportsperson?
You too can protect your intellectual property!
If you have the exclusive right to your creation, you can prevent others from freeloading on your success.
What's more, you can sell or license out your intellectual property rights.
That's how you score with IP!
Patents, trademarks, designs ...?
There are different types of intellectual property (IP) rights. You have to register to secure certain rights, for instance patent, trademark, design and plant breeders' rights. Other rights are yours automatically, for instance copyright.
To protect a technical invention, you can apply for a patent. More about patents
To protect a trade name, company name, product name or logo, you can apply for a trademark. More about trademarks
To protect the appearance of your product or creation, you can apply to register your design. More about designs
