Intellectual Property (IP) is not just bland two words, especially for businesses. You may be surprised as to how many aspects of your business can be protected by filing an IP – its name & logo, designs, inventions, creative works or intellectual efforts or even trademarks, which will distinguish and protect your business/product from your competitors. For many corporates, especially in India, IP is a challenging, costly and cumber some process; hence they may tend to neglect it, giving open invitation to others to steal their ideas and make it theirs. Therefore, IP protection not only protects your idea or a concept, it also protects genuine business assets that may be integral to the core services of the business and overall long-term viability. Serving the US IP market for over 25 years, Global IP Services (GIPS) found a huge gap in the Indian market and put its foot on the soil in 2003 to serve Indian companies with services at par with the US and European standards. These services are offered at a budget-friendly price or almost same cost as a typical large Indian law firm to startups, SMEs and individuals.
