Intellectual Property Insurance Guide

Intellectual Property Insurance offers protection against alleged infringement of Intellectual Property (IP) rights, including patents, trademarks, copyright and trade secrets. It is designed to provide you with a “fighting fund” to challenge alleged infringement, regardless of if a claim is brought against you or you are bringing a claim against a third party.

This type of cover can provide financial stability to companies that may experience issues with IP Rights. By protecting Intellectual Property and investing in a policy to support infringement claims, it can also help a company grow and remain competitive – even during times of market volatility – by enabling them to provide or continue to develop their products or services.

How can Intellectual Property Insurance help protect Science and Technology

In a competitive economy, individuals and businesses need to protect the value of their ideas and business models. The annual spend on intellectual property litigation has increased year on year to reach more than $3.3bn (£2.4bn) in 2019, almost doubling in 15 years.

Whether your business is established or you are a start-up on the journey to developing your idea, protecting your intellectual property is a sensible route to take to protect your interests.

Whilst it may be seen as a cost to the business, IP Insurance is an investment in the protection of the business’s future.
