Intellectual Property Infringements
Did you know Private Investigators often lead the way when a business has suffered intellectual property infringements, also called IP infringements? It is important to get the experts behind you straight away when faced with IP infringement or a breach of intellectual property rights. For example, you might have discovered a trademark infringement or the counterfeiting/piracy of a design, copyright or patent.
Creative work such as music, art and paintings, software, invention, industrial processes and various forms of writing can all be intellectual property. Unlike almost any other type of property, intellectual property is usually intangible, has often cost a lot to develop and is easy to copy and distribute.
Your IP rights are infringed as soon as work protected by IP laws is used, copied or otherwise exploited without the permission of the person who owns those rights. The Law allows civil court actions to prosecute offenders for infringed patents, trade-marks, designs or copyright and in more serious incidents the perpetrators can be pursued for criminal offences in cases of trade-mark infringement and copyright.
