Intellectual property rights for games developers

Here we help you as a game developer to create value from your intangible assets.

Why do you need to keep track of patents, trademarks, designs, and copyright? If you have secured your intellectual assets, you can commercialize and introduce your game to the international market with confidence.

By having your brand and studio protected, you can develop your studio peacefully without being copied or risking infringement on someone else's rights. In the international arena, there are many stakeholders you may want to collaborate with, such as publishers, studios, independent game developers, and financiers. Intellectual assets are often a prerequisite for successful collaboration, and by securing your own assets as much as possible, trust and security are established in partnerships, both for you and your partners.
