The cost of prosecuting or defending IP rights through the courts is for most prohibitive (in excess of £350,000) and very few have the available cash-flow to pursue or defend the matter through the courts. This unfortunately means that those with the cash have the ‘upper hand’ and those without can be left defenceless.

Intellectual Property Insurance cover is central to most intellectual property management strategies and is available to private inventors / small start-ups, SME clients with a varied IP portfolio and large corporations with a large number of IP assets.
