The ramifications of Intellectual Property (IP) in international trade and commerce are extensive and in-depth. Though attempts have been made to globalize the legal regime of Intellectual Property and various national statutes and judicial decisions have recognized this ‘globalised’ nature of intellectual property rights, a lot remains to be done. We at CND PARKER appreciate the value of your intellectual creation and accordingly render a wide range of advice on Patents, Copyrights, Trademarks, Designs, Trade Secrets and help you resolve Intellectual Property disputes.
Our team advises on a wide range of IP issues and has experience in a variety of key industry sectors.
Our IP capabilities include:
- Trade mark registration and portfolio management
- Ownership and management of IP
- Commercialising IP and IP in corporate/commercial transactions
- Dispute resolution and litigation
- Film and media
Our IP team adopts an integrated approach and works seamlessly with other specialists in the firm to provide a “one stop shop” in areas such as corporate structuring, capital raising, human resources, transactions, compliance, dispute resolution and litigation.
The exclusive right to use or exercise an invention is multi-faceted and one with various social and economic implications. We have the expertise to assist you with acquisition of patents and advice on rights and obligations of a patentee, on patent restoration, revocation, surrender, license, assignment of patents. We also render advice collaboration agreements and on matters arising out of commercialization of technology rights. We can help you manage and enforce your patents globally and assist you in cases of patent infringement.
Copyright is yet another IP Right which we endeavour to safeguard for our clients. A copyright is usually granted for literary, dramatic, musical works, artistic works. We can help you with assignment of copyright and advice you on the mode of assignment, any disputes pertaining to assignment of copyrights, transmission of copyright, relinquishing copyright, on obtaining licenses including license to publish translations.
We can advice you on extension of copyrights and allied rights and safeguard your rights against infringements, and provide you with our support to remedy any infringement.
Whereas law recognizes certain intellectual property rights for limited periods, a trade mark can be protected for perpetuity subject to certain conditions. We can help you with registration of trademarks, assignments and transmission of trade marks. We can help you exploit, enforce and renew your trademarks and in buying and selling trademarks, challenging infringements and passing off.
We also offer our services to safeguard your Industrial Designs. The shape, configuration, pattern, composition of lines, colours that you create for increasing your sales and expanding your forte of business deserve protection. We can help you with registration of designs, advice you on designs prohibited from registration, assignment and license, rights conferred by registration, on lapsed designs and help you seek civil remedies against piracy, infringement of copyright in a design by obtaining injunctions, damages or compensations and/or by delivery-up of infringing articles.
