Intellectual Property



Today more than ever, intellectual property is an asset, which is critical to the operations of a modern enterprise. Unlike many other types of property, the value of intellectual property such as trademarks, patents, and know-how can actually increase over time, even without additional investment.


Intellectual property includes trademarks, trade names, internet domains, software, preview trailers, booklets, inventions, utility models, industrial items and processes, integrated circuit layouts, designs, etc. In other words, intellectual property can be either in the form of a tangible or an intangible object, as any intellectual creation, which has commercial value. The more a brand becomes well known, the more serious the threat of piracy and other violations of intellectual property rights become. Nobles attorneys are specialists in protecting intellectual property rights and are experienced in providing services to world-renowned clients in Ukraine and in other countries.
