Protection of new technologies, innovation and design

Nowadays the economy is based on know-how, innovations and new technologies which translate into competitive advantage and allow businesses to increase their profitability. It is, therefore, of utmost importance that such essential elements be properly protected. Protection – depending on the subject matter – may take place by acquiring a patent for an invention, a utility model protection right or an industrial design right acquired through registration. The acquired right allows for exclusive use of a particular solution for a period of 20 years (in the case of inventions), 10 years (in the case of utility models) or 25 years (in the case of industrial designs). To be granted protection, the solution must meet a number of requirements, including the requirement of being new on a global scale.

Maciej Priebe - Trademark and patent attorney

New innovative products require not only protection in the form of e.g. patents, utility model protection or registered rights to industrial designs but also adequate professional management. Proper action, including the continuous monitoring of rights and the competition as well as rights valuation, will increase the value of any developed products and help protect them more effectively.
