The IP Audit
We are now a month or so into 2015, and as we normally do, we are completing several Intellectual Property Audits on behalf of clients, big and small. As we do so, we always wonder why all businesses do not have an IP Audit completed, especially when embarking on a new year with new opportunities. It is the perfect time to take inventory of your trademarks, copyrights, patents, domain names and trade secrets. It also gives us the opportunity to educate you about what you have and what you should have; what you are doing and what you should be doing.
If you are wondering if an IP Audit even applies to you, the answer is a resounding yes. How can you leverage and monetize what you have created when you do not even know what you truly have? How can you protect against infringers and cybersquatters, and even unlawful competitors, when you aren't monitoring what is rightfully yours? Do you really want to wait until a prospective purchaser of your business is performing due diligence to learn that you have failed to take the necessary steps to acquire, maintain and enforce your IP, and possibly lose the deal?
Let Traverse Legal's experienced IP attorneys and leveraged software tools provide you with an efficient and cost-effective IP Audit. Once complete, you can rest easy knowing that all of your IP is:
2. Applied for and/or registered in the United States and/or internationally;
3. Docketed for maintenance and renewal;
4. Monitored to identify infringers; and
5. Treated like the valuable asset it is, with proper licensing or other treatment.
