IP is one of your most valuable assets. In today’s business world, protecting those assets against third party infringement can be both complex and expensive. The same is true when it comes to protecting yourself against claims from others that you have infringed upon their patents, trademarks or other forms of intellectual property.
Our policy is a business enabler to small and medium sized companies and provides comfort to all stakeholders in the business in four vital ways:
- It ensures that infringement allegations can be defended efficiently and without affecting the bottom line unnecessarily.
- It protects innovation by affording the opportunity to pursue infringers of own rights as this course of action is sometimes necessary to retain the value of the business.
- If the insured is forced to stop selling a product due to infringement, it pays the loss of profit for a period, allowing the company to recover its position and invest in its other products.
- Last but not least, if a right is lost through the course of an infringement action, the money invested in obtaining and maintaining that right is also recovered under the policy.
