A business IP encompasses all of the intangible assets that the firm holds. Principally, this includes things like copyright in original creative works, database rights as well as trademarks, industrial designs, models, and patents. However, there are a lot more intangible assets such as confidential information and commercial secrets, articles of non-disclosed information, contracts and licences (distribution, website, software), etc.
Intellectual property is the term for anything unique: information, knowledge, ideas and expertise — that a business relies on. It is a secret to nobody, that IP, managed properly, can increase returns.
Organisations that want to use from their know-how and original ideas to full extent should make an effort and work out an IP strategy for their business. Another important thing is to carefully integrate it within their corporate strategy. This means taking intellectual property matters into consideration when drafting business and marketing plans. A standard IP strategy should at least include policies on acquisition, use and monitoring of intellectual property.
