Intellectual Property Solutions

Intellectual property is a key value generator that contributes greatly to the success of companies in competitive markets.

With regard to finding the right balance between the interests of innovators and the wider public interest, the IP system creates an environment where creativity and innovation can flourish. As reports from the World Intellectual Property Organization1 show, IP-intensive industries contribute almost 40% of GDP in the United States and 42% of total economic activity in the European Union.

But with the growing economic importance of intellectual property come increasing economic incentives for counterfeiting and fraud. Protecting a company’s IP effectively is crucial. Counterfeiting and theft must be directly targeted as the threats they are to sustainable IPbased business models.
