Intellectual property doesn’t end with a patent, a trademark, or a copyright.
Transactions may be the route to realize the full value of your intellectual property. A full intellectual property portfolio is bolstered by the right agreements, policies, and strategies for your situation. If you are still in the development stage of your invention, you likely will need an agreement to keep it secret and prevent loss of rights in the US and abroad. If you have employees that produce valuable content, you need an agreement that controls ownership of that content. If you have a registered or issued piece of intellectual property, you may want to license its use.
