The Intellectual Property Pole
The debate surrounding the property on software among the advocates of patent and the supporters of copyright is still valid. A professional specializing in New Technologies Law cannot dispense with these questions.
The clients’ best interest requires not only their creations to be protected, but also that the traceability of copyright within their companies is rigorously monitored.
- The intellectual property rights of the company;
- The employees’ intellectual property rights; and
- The transferred rights in the framework of a transfer of a company or of a branch of activity,
are items that must be systematically taken into consideration in order to be able to perpetuate the rights of the company, to make sure that the company is not deprived of such rights or becomes a victim of infringement.
The filing of a distinctive denomination that is strategic for the company, or of a patent (when the patentability conditions are met) is also an extremely important aspect, as well as a part of the assets of the company.
Even if the property of a trademark is decisive, it is not necessary or sufficient.
The evolution of new technologies requires new action grounds to be broken, as well as the integration, among the communication tools of the company, of legal names, domain names and, also, of interventions in the forums and social networks.
Each mode of communication must be thoroughly considered, and the risk taken duly assessed against the expected benefits.
