FAQ
What is an IP asset?
IP asset is an object of intellectual property being a result of an author’s creative activity. IP assets are software, trademarks, designs, texts, pictures, that in conjunction constitute your product.
What is the value of IP assets?

When investors, for instance, make an evaluation they, in the first place, pay attention to what they invest into and how safe their investment will be. IP box estimation, revenue and level of compliance, other corporate and IP aspects are such indicators that show business's ability to last.

Who owns IP assets?

While copies of IP objects (as software copies, books, sound recordings) may be owned by anyone who obtained it, the intellectual property rights to the IP assets are initially owned by their creators (authors) or holders of ownership documents (certificates, patents).
How can I obtain the rights for IP assets?
In order to obtain the rights to the IP assets created by your contractors, you need to conclude:
  • the assignment agreement: for the transfer of rights to the existing asset, or
  • the services agreement containing the intellectual property assignment provisions: to have the rights transferred in the course of the relationship with the contractor.
Do I need to register IP assets with a governmental body?
The copyright protection extends worldwide from the moment of the object creation and without any registration. On the contrary, such objects as trademarks and patents are protected on the basis of their registration which is territorially limited.

Is my product protected worldwide?

The copyrightable components of your product are indeed protected worldwide, whereas the registered trademarks and patents are only protected in the countries of their registration.
What do I need to know? And what do I need to ask a lawyer?
You need to know what IP assets your product contains and whether the rights to such IP assets are owned by you or your contractors.
It is advisable to ask a lawyer what agreements to have signed with the contractors before disclosing the statement of work. In case the product is already developed, ask a lawyer to review the agreements concluded with your contractors.

Does an NDA protect my product?

Non-disclosure agreement is intended for the protection of confidential information disclosed in the process of cooperation. It does not provide for the assignment of intellectual property rights, but only ensures that the receiving party will not use the information for any purpose other than agreed.
What if my developer uses open source code?
The use of free or open source software is always subject to the license provisions. In case you include such a software in your product you have to analyze carefully to what license terms you agree and whether your use is compliant with them.
