Intellectual Property Considerations for Early Stage Start up Businesses

In the early years of a new business there is so much to do in order to survive and grow that intellectual property considerations are often side-lined or overlooked, which can have adverse repercussions further down the line. In particular, a new business can find that it is encroaching on the IP rights of another business, or that its own business is not sufficiently protected from the actions of third parties. In this discussion we will provide an introduction to the different intellectual property rights that exist, outline the various IP-related opportunities and risks that a new business should consider, and describe ways to mitigate risks.
