As a business becomes successful, its intellectual property rights are often its most valuable assets. And, as the business grows and diversifies with respect to its products, brands and territories, acquires new businesses, develops new IP, sells or lapses its rights, restructures, moves, and more, the administration and management of a business’s portfolio of IP rights can become a substantial task. Taking care of renewals, essential register recordals, making sure that rights are adequately protected for goods/services on which they are used or not, that territories are adequately covered, that obsolete rights are weeded out and new rights are established, that licenses are abided by and infringements enforced.
