About Intellectual Property:

Wealth is the product of man’s capacity to think. The great successful


men of the world have used their imagination, developed new ideas,
explored new horizons and always maintained a lead over their
competitors. Business is the game and your ideas are your assets, an
edge over others, something that makes you a winner. However, the
value of an idea lies in the using of it. It is not who develops it but the
one who uses it gets the reward. What if your idea was being used by
your competitor? What if your goodwill was employed by your
adversary to make a hole in your profits? Would you like to stay back
as an onlooker or step forward to protect what is yours? A winner
would choose to respond with vigor and so would you.
Intellectual Property is the intangible assets that result from your idea.
These intangible assets are highly valuable and are being recognized
as major indicators of a company’s business success.
Patents, Designs, Trademarks, Copyrights, Trade Secrets, and Geographical Indications are the foundation of many major
businesses and form the most valued critical assets. How you define and protect your ideas, creativity and inventions are
strategic issues that form the bottom-line of your success.
Intellectual property rights are the rights of an owner to exclude anyone else using, copying or distributing the information or
item which is their intellectual property. Most businesses, including yours, own or use some type of intellectual property, for
example, logos, brand names, literary or artistic material (e.g. operations manuals, software, data bases, training materials,
sound or visual recordings), designs and unique color schemes, inventions, new products, new processes, etc.
In short, if you have something that identifies your business or that is created
by you, it may have a value that can be quantified and would create value
either on your balance sheet, or upon any sale of a business. Besides these,
you can also adequately protect your assets from being used by others without
your authorization.
Knowing about intellectual property (IP) in business is relevant in many ways.
 IP has real value that can be identified financially as an asset on your
balance sheet.
 If your IP could be used by another person or business you could gain
income by licensing or franchising the use of your IP to that person or
business for a fee or royalty.
 You can stop an unauthorized user from exploiting you IP and may claim
damages for any harm that such user may have caused you.
 It is possible to separate the IP component of your business from the
trading operation. A separated IP portfolio shall enable you to transact in
them without involvement of your trading operations.
Finally, analyzing your IP as well as that of others would help you determine what you can and cannot do in developing your own
products and services and in your operations and administrative functions. It would be devastating for your business to build up a
brand or reputation only to receive a letter from a lawyer demanding you stop using your brand name or change the design of
your product because you had not checked before starting.
A smart lawyer with knowledge in this area can assist with creating your IP portfolio, protecting your ideas against unauthorized
use, shielding you and your business against aggressive IP enforcement of others, selling or buying IP, licensing, trademarks,
confidentiality agreements or general advice on any concerns or ambitions you have.
Why is intellectual property important?

Intellectual property protection is critical to carve out chances for survival and success of
business, both for new entrants with vibrant and innovative ideas as well as for the
established business entities who have a desire to lead and set trends in the field of their
business. Without protection of ideas, businesses would not reap the full benefits. Strong IP
portfolio is what defines the commercial success of business in the global economy.
Similarly, individuals with innovative ideas, inventions or original creations would not be
fully compensated, if not properly protected in time, for their creations and would suffer as
a result.
Why should I protect my intellectual property?
Piracy, counterfeiting and the theft of intellectual property assets pose a serious threat to all
businesses, irrespective of their size, volume, market share or internal structure. If not
accorded adequate and timely legal protection, fruits of your intellectual property would be
enjoyed by others and you will be left with no option other than to regret. Domestic players
face threat of losing market due to counterfeits, exporters face unfair competition abroad,
and all businesses face issues relating to misappropriation of one’s IP.
Intellectual property is also a form of property which can provide you with unprecedented benefits if protected properly.
Why should I protect my intellectual property abroad?

Most small businesses are not aware that their patent or trademark does not protect
them in other countries. If you are an exporter, or think you might want to export in
the future, you will need to seriously consider securing protection for your intellectual
property (IP) in those foreign markets of interest to you. It is a good idea to get the
appropriate forms of IP protection before you start doing business in another country.

IP theft poses a risk to all industry sectors; those most commonly affected by IP theft
are manufacturing, consumer goods, technology, software, and biotechnology,
including pharmaceuticals, copyrightable subject matter, designs and above all
trademarks and domain names.
Enabling Innovation
Innovation is an evidence of improvement, development and competitiveness of a
business. Every business has innovation as their first priority. It has been found that
there are great dynamic ideas among day to day performers but it remains captive in
their head. Non-strategic innovation initiatives leads to either hit the business or
proves to be a major loss to the business in terms of time, energy, resource and
competitiveness.
We at Inovatree have rich experience in developing innovation framework for
businesses. We work with higher management to understand requirements or aim of
the business and with ground level employees to understand capabilities of the
team. Thereafter we propose a roadmap to ensure we have right capabilities for right
job to reach the goal of the business.

Innovation culture
Culture starts from first step of the business and carries on till last
step. We work with each level of business to identify day-to-day
routines to perform diagnosis of root causes and then showcase a
new way to handle day-to-day routines. We design a platform for
innovation from ground level employee to leadership with proper
training on innovation to develop culture of innovation.
PATENTS

Often our business is based on new product or new process. It is something that we develop
out of our intellectual labor, intricate knowledge, familiarity with practical problems of the
field, experience, vision to develop something new or something that has a potential to make
us a trend-setter in the market. It involves grinding hard work, unparalleled brain storming
and also investment of lot of time and loads of money. The fruits of such work belong to the
developer and fruits come with the commercial success of the product or process. The
government recognizes and encourages such work and grants a monopoly for 20 years, by
granting a ‘patent’, to make, use, sell, import or export such products and services. Others can
do any of these only if they acquire an authorization from the owner by paying a royalty or
fees. And if somebody (infringer) uses, or manufactures, or sells, or imports or exports a
product or service patented by some other person, the owner of such patent can stop further
use by the infringer and can also recover damages from him. A patent is an asset that helps
increase the value of the business. Stronger the patent portfolio higher will be the chances of
a business entity to sustain and survive the market competition. Knowledge and due regard of
the patent system is necessary for the following reasons:
 It adds value to your business. Patents are assets and often fetch values more than physical assets. The success of a
business in the modern world depends greatly in the patents held by it. There are many small companies which have
turned into global giants only because they got a novel product or process patented in time.

 It makes you entitles to license or sell the product or process covered by a patent and gain royalty or fees in return.

 It allows you to stop unauthorized use of your patented product or process and also to recover damages in case of such
unauthorized use.

 Having knowledge of the patents of others in the field of your business helps you run your business smoothly without
incurring any liability by accidentally or unknowingly infringing someone else’s patent. Causing infringement even
innocently is no excuse and such innocent infringements often becoming devastating mistakes.

Besides, the above, patents are commercially valuable in many more ways depending on the type of business one is in. We, at
Inovatree provide complete solutions with respect to patents. We provide you with expert counseling on matters related in
any way to patents. We help you get a patent granted from the government, help you determine whether your invention has
potential to be patented, whether a business operation or product launching would be safe enough to avoid attracting any
legal liability on your part, help you in licensing and other patent related transactions, and in every other way patent can be
helpful in your business.
DESIGNS
A buyer chooses a product based on many factors, one of which is external appearance of the
product. What if you develop a great design which is so attractive that not only the consumer but
also your competitor imitates? Do you have any legal protection against such act of misappropriation
of something you designed? Yes, Indian Law provides adequate protection for such external
appearance of the product, legally known as ‘design’, if one gets his/her design registered with any of
the Intellectual Property Office in India. The ‘designs’ refer to creative activity which result in the
ornamental or formal appearance of a product and design right refers to a novel or original design
that is accorded to the proprietor of a validly registered design. If you have a product for which you
create a novel attractive design which, you assess, would be a great factor in determining the
commercial success of the product then best way to protect your creation is to get its design
registered.

We, at Inovatree, provide all kind of legal solutions relating to designs, such as getting your design
duly registered, protecting you against unauthorized usage of your registered design, recovery of
damages for any commercial loss resulting from an unauthorized use of your registered design, and
all other matters related to registration, maintenance and transaction of designs.
TRADEMARKS

Trademark is very critical to ones business. It has reputation and


goodwill related to it. It is your identity in the business world.
Though trademark can be chosen as per the will of the person but
the chosen mark should not be identical to some one else’s
trademark. Even if one chooses a trademark without attracting any
legal issues from other owner’s of trademark still it requires years
of bonafide business practices to develop a valuable trademark. It
requires investment of time and money to make a trademark
known to public and to make it acquire goodwill and reputation.

A trademark can be registered or unregistered. However, the safest business practice is to get the mark registered. It gives
the owner much greater protection. If you have a unique brand, logo or slogan which identifies your business no-one else
should be able to copy it. The purpose of trade mark protection is to stop other businesses imitating you and confusing
purchasers, who may go to the competitor, by mistake because its trademark resembles your trademark.
The specific issues related to trademark are:

1. To acquire a valid registered trademark which would take into account other existing trademarks and thereby obviate
the chances of any future liability or litigation.

2. To stop the use of trademarks, same or similar to your trademark, by others, so that you do not loose your business to
the person who imitates your trademark.

3. To maintain trademark portfolios for facilitating your business requirements and any future transactions relating to
your trademark.

Inovatree provides solution to every issue concerning – procurement of registration for a trademark, trademark
maintenance, stopping unauthorized use of trademark, transactions relating to property in trademark, advising on any
other related issue.
COPYRIGHT

Copyright is a right given by the law to creators of literary, dramatic, musical and
artistic works and producers of cinematograph films and sound recordings. In
includes rights of reproduction, broadcasting and communication to the public by any
means, adaptation and translation of the work. The protection provided by copyright
to the efforts of writers, artists, designers, dramatists, musicians, architects and
producers of sound recordings, cinematograph films and computer software, creates
an atmosphere conducive to creativity, which induces them to create more and
motivates others to create. They are also very critical for the success of a business, if
the business either deals directly or is related indirectly to anything that forms a
subject matter of copyright.

Anything original including writing, sound, film or software is automatically protected by ‘copyright’ which means
they cannot be copied without author permission. While the purchaser or user may own the physical book, DVD or
software disc, they do not own the information and effort within those items. This means no photocopying of books
and manuals, no recording of DVDs or use of software on more than one computer.
Copyright exists without registration but still the best practice is to formally register them. It helps you in many ways and
especially in two specific ways:

 A registered copyright is a prima facie evidence of validity. If you have a registration certificate for your work it is
presumed by law that you are a lawful owner of the same. It saves your cost of expensive litigation to establish your
ownership.

 Second, a registration also helps you to transact in the copyrighted matter as it is a valid proof of your ownership. The
other party will have faith in the transaction and it will help you in building up your goodwill and to develop cordial
business relationships.

We, at Inovatree, help you protect your copyrightable subject matter by getting it duly registered. We also help you with
legalities of any transaction you wish to carry out with your copyrighted subject matter. You will find us useful when
assigning or procuring an assignment of copyrighted subject matter. We provide you with every solution relating to
copyright.
Contract Drafting

Contract is a foundation of a business and drafting a contract is a first


phase of contract lifecycle. Well drafted contracts play a critical role in
company’s success by avoiding any breach, litigations and non-
compliances. A risky contract may end up a business with lawsuits,
burdensome financial costs, business strain and others.
Majority of business owners, companies and young lawyers borrow a
template either from free resources like internet or through colleague
and use it by editing or modifying few details. Without knowing the
intent, know-how of clauses and inserting the same in Contract may
end up risking you forever. Business may discover to their surprise that
the contract does not carry interest of the business and rather end up in
various risks, but then it is too late to mitigate any risk.
It takes of good research and experience to draft a Good Contract balancing risk and rewards and to some extent mitigating risks
involved.
There has been many cases across the globe where business owners have closed the business resulting from contract litigations.
While drafting a contract one should prepare a backbone and then fill in muscles to give a shape. One should clearly define terms
and be consistent throughout the agreement. It is very critical to cross check that no language/word in the contract has a space of
ambiguity and checking punctuation since one punctuation mark can alter the whole intent drastically.
Contract Vetting

Generally all legal battles related to contracts revolve around interpretation


of contract language. Ambiguity germinates when term(s) of a Contract are
subject to more than one reasonable constructions. Principle of vetting of a
contract is to ascertain all intent are expressed in a simple language without
giving effect to any other construction of the term. It is immaterial what a
party intents or wants to say if the language does not expressly mentions
so.
Fundamental of tailoring a contract is to ascertain how well the structure of contract is managed, defined and the risks are
managed. Transactions in today’s world are becoming complex considering technical advancements and hence business needs to
evaluate and understand the risk that they may incur in the course of facilitating the contract.
Any ambiguity may end up a contract and business at large hence it is critical for a business to have a strong pre-vetted language
to mitigate most of the risk involved in the document.
Ctrl C + Ctrl V can be self-destructive and hence Inovatree offers strong expertise from professionals across the industry
Contract Risk Mitigation

Is the executed contract delaying your revenue? Are all of your obligations under a contract is
more than what you are getting? Is your contract ending up with financial loss? Is your
contract exposing you more towards risk than to rewards? Is your contract expressly takes care
of your business interest? Are you ready to incur the risk mentioned in the contract?
Risk under a contract is generally perceived as secondary or no concern while contracting.
Greatest challenge is to identify risk taking capability while running a business successfully.
One bad contract can impact a business to such an extent that owner may decide or forcefully
shut the company. Loosely drafted contract may end up losing customers, stakeholders,
forecasts, and business at large.
In most of the cases single sided contracts are executed and hence exposing the business to
higher risks that business would have never forecasted. Hence, it critical to have a mitigation
plan of all risks mentioned in a contract and business should be ready to take
corrective/preventive actions to minimize or mitigate such risks.
