Frequently Asked Questions About Intellectual Property Insurance
Intellectual property insurance may help anyone owning intellectual property, including a trade secret, patent, copyright, trademark, and more. Images associated with a brand may even represent intellectual property.
Anyone who holds a patent may benefit from IP insurance. Patent litigation often becomes very expensive. Having the funds from an insurance policy to handle the claim is very important for many companies.
Your policy provides you with protection from both intentional and accidental infringement. You may also have a policy that protects you if you accidentally infringe upon someone else’s intellectual property. Reach out to us today to discuss all your options.
According to industry experts, patent lawsuits may cost over three million dollars, with the final expenses often depending on how long you spent in court and the revenue involved in the case.
Around 5,000 people file copyright cases each year, with another 6,000 people filing patent lawsuits yearly. These lawsuits cover a large percentage of the property insurance claims that go to court, but not all of them.
An IP insurance policy, therefore, represents an essential part of any risk management plan. This form of insurance helps you cover legal fees and offers you protection against intellectual property infringement. Many companies find IP insurance more than worth it for these reasons.
IP insurance frequently provides you with enforcement coverage. This form of coverage helps protect you from intellectual property infringement, kicking in if you believe that someone else is misusing your intellectual property. Examples of IP misuse may include other companies:
- Using your software without permission
- Using graphics or icons from your company
- Infringing on a trademarked product name
- Utilizing your licensed photos
- Taking a patented product design for their own
Your IP insurance protects these assets. If you have defense coverage, the insurance also protects you from judgments against your company. We can review all the benefits of intellectual property insurance with you in greater detail when you contact our team.
Third-party infringement on your intellectual property remains a significant concern around the country. However, you may also face other risks that an IP insurance policy covers. For example, your insurance policy may assist if you have concerns about:
- IP threats and open-source software
- Subcontractors or licensing agreements with third parties
- Your business’s publishing activities
- Standardization activities for inter-operability
- Open innovation initiatives and IP rulings
Assessing these concerns before they become a problem allows you to manage the risks faced by your company. In addition, your insurance policy allows you to set forth clear guidance about how you want your company to navigate these – and other – IP risks.
Setting up an IP insurance policy provides your company with a layer of protection. However, you should also make sure you claim proper ownership of any IP associated with your business. Register your IP by getting a trademark, copyright, or patent if appropriate.
Generally, businesses have an easier time protecting properly registered pieces of IP. Your insurance may have more difficulty addressing concerns if you did not complete formal registration for a piece of intellectual property.
In addition to registering the IP, you may want to use written agreements like contracts and licensing agreements carefully. These pieces of documentation create more proof regarding the ownership of your intellectual property, making it easier for your insurance policy to provide you with complete protection.
