Even if your product is still in the development stage, it might be worth applying for an IP right already – for example, a patent, a (comparatively cheaper) utility model, a trademark, or a design. This will protect your ideas from being copied and prepare your budding company for the future. For example, it is often the case that existing or registered IP rights are an important aspect in pitches or in the search for investors.
If there is a dispute - for example if your idea is copied by a competitor - IP rights make even more sense. Start-ups in Germany have an excellent legal backing and solid opportunities to enforce their IP rights in court and thus establish a strong position in the market early on.
Patents, utility models, trademarks, and so on secure your path to independence. We will support you so that you can enjoy the maximum benefit from these IP rights!
