Intellectual property takes a more and more important place in the life of businesses. It is common for companies and individuals to protect a trademark, a patent, a design or a domain name, to have to oppose a trademark registration or to prevent or stop a third party from violating a copyright or from using a trademark or content without right.
A request for the protection of intellectual property may face oppositions, modification requests or refusals that pose complex legal issues and generate lengthy procedures in different jurisdictions. An opposition to a trademark or a patent registration may also create complicated legal issues.
The protection of intellectual property rights against unauthorized use by third parties may lead to complex procedures and usually requires prompt actions.
