Long description:
In the initial phase, start-ups often overlook the importance of protecting intellectual property (IP) assets in favour of concentrating on the business idea. This can leave the business exposed to both financial and creative risk.



This highly practical book highlights the need for start-ups to protect their IP from the outset. It outlines the basics of IP in a start-up context and gives guidance to founders and their advisors in developing a successful IP strategy, including building patent portfolios, contract drafting, financing, due diligence and asset management.


 
Key Features:



  • ?Best practice? on IP strategy for start-ups and beyond

  • Guidance on how IP can be protected and how infringements of third-party rights can be avoided

  • Practical advice on the role of IP in valuing and financing a business

  • Review of the the legal ramifications and pitfalls of failing to properly protect IP

  • Accessible writing style and use of illustrative case studies

  • Author team with vast experience of advising start-ups, and consulting on IP matters in mergers and acquisitions transactions.


 
Legal practitioners and auditing and consulting companies will find this an invaluable resource for avoiding the pitfalls during due diligence. Investors and founders of companies will appreciate the practical information on protecting their IP assets and reducing the risk of legal losses.
