Intellectual Property and ICT

Intellectual property rights and ICT rights

By means of intellectual property rights, you are able to prevent your competitors from copying your product or logo. In addition, you can exploit your product or service in an optimum way. Intellectual property and ICT are developing rapidly and this is leading to a lot of red tape, both nationally and on a European scale. We are acutely aware of the latest developments and are therefore able to assist you in an excellent way.

Bogaerts & Groenen and Intellectual property rights and ICT rights

Bogaerts & Groenen will advise and take legal action where intellectual property rights and ICT are concerned, e.g. patents and patent infringement, prototypes, brands (wordmarks and logos), copyright (for example relating to the design of a website or software), trade names, and domain names. In addition, we will advise or take legal action concerning the use of brands and trade names by third parties in advertising. And if you want to exploit your own intellectual property rights, we have the knowledge and experience to help you with this.

In addition, we can have your brands and prototypes registered for you, both in the Netherlands and abroad.
