Under PINTAS IP Protection, we help to protect your intellectual property assets in all your strategic markets and production bases worldwide.
IP Protect Module entails identification and capturing of vital intellectual capital and knowledge
developed by a company in the course of its operations. These critical intellectual capital or
knowledge which contributes to overall competitive advantage of the company can be owned in the
forms of patents, trademarks, copyrights, industrial designs or trade secrets depending on the nature
of the knowledge. The challenge of IP Protect Module is to identify the sum total of knowledge or
intellectual capital of an organisation, capture and codify the knowledge to become intellectual assets
of the organisation and eventually selective protect the intellectual assets so that they become
proprietary of the oganisation as illustrated by the Diagram 2.3.1 above
The Table below summarises the different categories of intellectual property assets protectable by the
intellectual property system. In essence, intellectual property system protects intangible assets
which are the fruit of creative or innovative capacities of the mind and grants the owner the exclusive
rights to commercially exploit the assets for a limited duration of time.
