    Intellectual property is also regarded as IP law; include intangible creations of the mind. It protects creations by granting patents, copyright, and trademarks.

    The basis for legal protection may be that the creator has the right to own it. The theory is that it promotes further innovation for the benefit of society. Like all property rights, IP law allows the owners to gain from their work and investment in the creation.

    Intellectual property includes patents, trademarks, copyrights, registered designs and design rights. Some IP rights (such as patents, trademarks, and designs) require official ownership registration in the Intellectual Property Office, providing owners with protection and monopoly rights. Others such as copyright and design rights will automatically arise upon creation but do not protect a third party’s independent creation – only from copying. 

    Of course, intellectual property rights, protect the expression of ideas, not the ideas themselves, as a first step, it is important that appropriate confidentiality measures are made to ensure that negotiations with various parties from the beginning are protected and never disclosed.

    Intellectual property rights differ regarding duration and methods, but the effect is to make sure that the owner has the exclusive right to use and decide how to use those rights and to prevent the second part from using the same rights.

    A patent protects a new invention and has industrial applications. This allows the holder of a patent to use the invention to simplify business processes, gain competitive advantage and increase revenue by licensing or selling the patent to the third party.

    Copyright protects original literary works (for example, computer programs, and instruction manual), musical works, dramatic works of art (such as logos, maps, architectural drawings, prints, photographs and architectural works). The copyright owner is the first author of the copyrighted work. So, if you contact Law Firm Abu Dhabi orConstruction Lawyerto carry out survey, write a report, create a website or a piece of software that parties own the copyright, even if you have paid for it. However, copyright does not protect ideas.

    Trademark is a sign that can distinguish the goods or services of one merchant from another. A sign includes words, logos, images, or a combination of them. A sign to be registered must be different, not misleading and not similar or identical to any earlier marks for the same goods and services.  Keep in mind that simple registration of your company with the Companies’ House does not guarantee trademark protection. Similarly, if you have a website, you must have a trademark as a domain name and vice versa.

    Creating awareness of IP law among the people is essential for maximizing the value of intellectual property and the wealth of your business and reducing the possibilities of accidental non-confidential disclosures, which could reduce the demands of a successful patent and a negative impact on the value of their intellectual property and ultimately their companies’ property.

    Regular training of people on intellectual property is essential and should include the following:

    • How to Identify and Protect Intellectual Property;
    • How patents are used to improve technology;
    • Understanding the patent process,
    • How confidential information are to be treated;
    • Intellectual Property record keeping, including Lab Log and Intellectual Property Protection; and
    • Who to contact in case of need.

    Over the past few days, you may have heard some chatter about ‘IP Czar’ nomination. No surprising.

    Vishal J. Amin, Senior Counsel on the House Judiciary Committee, has been nominated by President Trump as the next White House Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator. Amin will be part of Executive office of the President. After confirmation, Amin would succeed Daniel Marti, who handled the responsibility of the IP Enforcement Coordinator during the President Obama’s second regime.

    On behalf of International Intellectual Property Law Association (IIPLA), in the capacity of Director, I welcome his nomination.

    Amin is not new to the government of the United States. He served at various positions in the administration of President George W Bush at the White House, including:
    • Associate Director for Domestic Policy,
    • Special Assistant at the US Department of Commerce and
    • Associate Director for Policy in the Office of the Secretary.

    We believe thoughtful contemplation and prompt appointment for this position is critical for the Intellectual Property Industry. Vishal is smart thoughtful leader and we commend President Trump for his choice.

    Azam Ghani,
    Founder Director, International Intellectual Property Law Association (IIPLA).
