Most people and companies that own intellectual property rights such as trademarks, patents, copyrights etc., come to a conclusion that after receiving the relevant protection the job is done and everything will be fine for those rights.
Not only this is not the case, it could be a huge mistake.
When you own or make business with intellectual property you need to be proactive and to maintain it constantly otherwise you can lose this protection.
For example, if you have a patent for invention in order to keep its protection active, you need to pay annual fees to the Patent Office.
In the case of trademarks, for every 10 years, in most of the cases, you need to renew the trademark otherwise you will lose its protection.
All of this requires a good knowledge and information for the status of every IP asset that you possess.
Big companies use professional software that keeps all of the intellectual property information at one place which allows companies to maintain the relevant protection and to keep up with all legal requirements.
For individual owner and small businesses, however, such a software could be way too expensive.
That’s way I decided to create a Udemy course that teaches you how to build your all database with intellectual property information for free, just using one very well-known application called Asana.
The database that I created in the course, although not so sophisticated as a professional software decision, it can do the job quite properly.
This can save you a lot of time, money and problems when it comes to maintaining the protection of your intellectual property right.
