Is imitation really the sincerest form of flattery? Some may think so, but passing off one’s ideas or inventions as your own can be very serious and the subject of intricate investigations.
“Intellectual property refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce,” according to the World Intellectual Property Organization.
Intellectual property investigations often look at trademark or copyright infringement allegations. Our team uses investigative techniques to determine when and where the incident occurred, and who is responsible. These techniques can include fieldwork, checking records, and other kinds of research.
Intellectual property violations can often result in litigation, depending on the laws in the country where the incident occurs. Nevertheless, the information gathered during an intellectual property investigation can be invaluable to protecting your creative possessions and preventing incidents in the future.
