Intellectual property protection is vital to the protection of a business’s assets such as a logo, brand name unique ideas, products or processes. As registered agents with the Cayman Islands Intellectual Property Office (“CIIPO”), our team can assist with:
The type of protection depends on the nature of the intellectual property which includes:
A brand or other sign that identifies and distinguishes a company’s goods and/or service e.g. name, logo, words, symbols, or phrase. The trademark is protected for 10 years from the date the trademark application is filed with CIIPO.
The exclusive rights given to creators of original literary, artistic, dramatic or musical works, so that they can publish, reproduce, perform or produce such works.
An exclusive right granted for an invention, which is a product or a process that provides, in general, a new way of doing something, or offers a new technical solution to a problem. The application is by way of extension of a patent already registered in the United Kingdom and European Community.
Protects the visual appearance of a product or item including shape, packaging, patterns, colours, decoration and gives exclusive right to use that appearance for up to 25 years. The application is by way extension of a design already registered with the UK IPO.
We can advise on the type of intellectual property protection that is ideal is for your business and the process of ensuring such protection.
