Everyone knows how tough it is for a new venture to succeed in today’s business environment. It is commonly thought that the people, the physical office space or the marketing plan will make or break a business’ success. While this is essential, a company’s true uniqueness is likely to be in its intellectual resources.

Protecting your uniqueness in order to preserve market share takes careful planning and organization. It takes proper mechanisms and safeguards to protect the fruits of the investment. It may involve a complicated interplay of protection by and vigilance over patents, trade secrets, copyrights and source identifiers, such as trademarks, to ensure a steady course for the business.
