Intellectual Property arises when something new or original is created. Intellectual Property can include a design, an invention or idea, an artistic work, symbol, name logo or image used in commercial (ie. trade mark). Brydens Lawyers Commercial Team can assist clients to resolve disputes associated with the right to use intellectual property.
ARE YOU ELIGIBLE TO MAKE A CLAIM?
If your Intellectual Property has been infringed or your right to use intellectual property is being challenged, you should contact Brydens Lawyers for professional advice. Our Commercial Team can assist you to protect your reputation, prevent infringement and deter misuse.
WHAT ARE YOU ABLE TO CLAIM AND HOW CAN I RESOLVE MY DISPUTE?
If your Intellectual Property has been infringed, you can seek a Court order to be financially compensated (damages) by the party who has infringed your Intellectual Property.
If your Intellectual Property is being misused, it is possible to seek an injunction to stop the party misusing your Intellectual Property.
An account of profit is another remedy able to be ordered by the Court whereby the infringer is required to transfer the profits made from the infringing conduct to the owner of the Intellectual Property.
You may also wish to consider granting the infringer of Intellectual Property a licence allowing their use of the Intellectual Property upon making payment of a royalty to the owner of the Intellectual Property.
Prior to going to court, you may wish to consider alternative dispute resolution so as to avoid the expense of proceeding with litigation.
