An innovator’s guide to intellectual property

For most companies, it’s not a piece of equipment, a commercial property or stockpile of inventory. It’s “intellectual capital” – namely the ideas, inventions and information that represent much of the value of modern businesses.

The Canadian intellectual property law firm Ridout & Maybee LLP recently prepared a guide for using patents, trademarks and other intellectual property to capture the full value of a business’s intellectual capital.

This straightforward white paper discusses the benefits of these forms of protection and how intellectual property can be used as part of an overall business strategy. It also includes a step-by-step guide on how to obtain a patent as well as:

  • When you should – and should not – patent an invention;
  • Examples of inventions that can and cannot be patented;
  • How to maximize the value of your company’s intellectual property;
  • Alternatives to patenting an invention; and
  • How to select and protect a trademark.
