Brand protection and intellectual property protection are critical concerns for long-term corporate growth and survival in today’s competitive, global marketplace. All manner of products and commodities are susceptible to IP theft, including:
- Fashion and apparel
- Formulas for fragrances, pharmaceuticals and agricultural chemicals
- Financial models and algorithms
Failure to develop a wide-ranging strategy to protect intellectual property and brands can cost a company millions of dollars, lost competitive advantages and, ultimately, its ability to compete. Taking steps to prevent such incidents from occurring is essential, and when an incident occurs, being prepared with a quick and thoughtful response is crucial.
