As a New York business owner, you may already have a good idea of the worth of your company — at least as far as its tangible assets are concerned. It is equally important, however, to protect your nontangible assets. Nontangible assets typically include intellectual property, which may have more value than you think.
Common terms associated with intellectual property law include trade dress, copyright, trade secrets, branding, royalties, and more. Within each of these categories, you might hold assets that are critical to the daily function and success of your business. Protecting these assets is an integral part of protecting your company’s overall bottom line.
Creating, buying and selling intellectual property
