Intellectual Property

Iowa Innovation Corporation Startup Guide to Intellectual Property lays out the basic components of why startup companies should be proactive in development and protect their intellectual property.  It is generally advisable to consult an experienced attorney on how to protect intellectual property because it can be a business asset with commercial values. 

SBA Intellectual Property provides additional information on protecting digital rights, patents, trademarks and copyright concerns.  More information on related considerations is also available.
