Intellectual Property Disputes

Brand, technology and intellectual capital are quickly becoming key assets for successful and expansive businesses. Intellectual Property disputes unfortunately occur more frequently in today’s technological society. Usually intellectual property falls in to one of two categories; registrable and non-registrable. 

Registrable intellectual property is commonly thought as easier to protect because it is possible to prove ownership of the intellectual property by reference to a register of intellectual property. That being said, it is possible to challenge registered intellectual property if they do not meet certain criteria. Intellectual Property disputes include:

Registrable Intellectual Property

  1. Infringement of Trademark;
  2. Infringement of UK Registered Design;
  3. Infringement of Community Registered Designs;
  4. Infringement of Patents.

Unregistered Intellectual Property

  1. Infringement of Copyright;
  2. Infringement of UK Unregistered Designs;
  3. Infringement of Community Unregistered Designs;
  4. Passing Off;
  5. Domain Name Disputes.
