Intellectual property (IP) refers to the exclusive rights that apply to intangible human creations. Intellectual property is a core asset of a business, especially when you first start out. The main types of IP are trade marks, patents, copyrights, and trade secrets.

Once you have registered your trade mark, you might need a Trade Mark Licence Agreement. This is a document through which the owner of a trade mark (the licensor) gives approval to another person (the licensee) to use the trade mark. This document helps parties to clarify important questions, such as how the trade mark can be used, the duration and territory of the licence, the amount paid,and the responsibilities of both licensor and licensee.
If you decide to sell or transfer a trade mark, you will need a Trade Mark Assignment. This can help to ensure that the rights that are being transferred are correctly identified and assigned, and both parties are clear on their rights and remedies under the transfer.
Before entering any commercial relationship, start with a Confidentiality Agreement, also known as a Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA). This ensures that other businesses do not misuse any commercial information you exchange during negotiations. Use a one-way Confidentiality Agreement (unilateral NDA) if only one business is sharing information or a standard two-way Confidentiality Agreement (mutual NDA) if both parties reveal sensitive information to each other.
