Management of your intellectual property rights is imperative, but by no means trivial! We help you to maintain an overview of your registrations and maintain your IP.
A patent can be in force for a maximum of 20 years
While this sentence is true, it does not give the complete picture. If you want to make the most of the advantages of a patent, there is much more to it than that.
Our specialty is the administration of patent families, including payment of annuities in such a transparent way that you have an complete overview and a good basis for business decisions.
No matter if you have one patent family in 10 countries or 10 patents in one country, keeping track and not missing any deadlines can be a challenge. euromaier® offers solutions tailored to your need: you can just receive the amounts for the budget and the invoices, or we can plan meetings in regular intervals to discuss the patent portfolio.
Trademark, company name and domain name
Company and product names can be protected as trademarks and the corresponding domains can also be reserved. However the protection depends on the use of the trademark and the renewal of the registrations.
Even if you have protected a trademark, the corresponding domain can be lost if you do not pay the fees in time. euromaier® manages your worldwide trademark and domain registrations and assists if a conflict arises.
A design is not a design
A US design patent is valid for 15 years from registration. For a Chinese design patent, maintenance fees must be paid annually. A Community Design is valid for a maximum of 25 years and must be renewed every 5 years. Got the picture?
Only well maintained Intellectual Property has a value!
